WHAT I LIKED ABOUT THIS BOOK : Brian Lies’ book BATS AT THE BEACH was one of the first bat books I read by this author. While most people might be squirmish around nocturnal flying critters, I was captivated by Mr. Lies’ delightful illustrations, so when I realized he wrote another book in this series, I was eager to read it. This book is a wonderful way to introduce young readers to the magic and fun that can be found within the aisles of their local library. A MUST addition to any children’s library!
