Now we are getting to the guides that are in my children’s age groups. Man oh man, this was a difficult thing to set up. LOL! My kids wanted so many things on this Holiday Gift Guide, but they have to fit my criteria. Although this is for boys, there is nothing here that wouldn’t fit for your daughter, also!
Home in the Cave, Little Red Bat and a magnetic bat friend
A perfect gift to inspire minds! Sylvan Dell is pairing two favorites Home in the Cave and Little Red Bat with a fuzzy friend for the holiday season. Each book has a fun story with a science twist for kids to enjoy!
About Little Red Bat:
Red bats can hibernate or migrate to warmer regions during the winter. Should this solitary little bat stay or should she go? That’s the question the little red bat ponders as the leaves fall and the nights get colder! Some animals, such as the squirrel, tell her to stay. But what about the dangerous creatures that hunt red bats in winter? The sparrow and others urge her to go. But where? Carole Gerber takes young readers on an educational journey through one bat’s seasonal dilemma in Little Red Bat. Imaginative illustrations by Christina Wald give little red bat charm and personality, and children will be waiting and wondering what will happen next. Will the little red bat stay put or migrate south for safety and warmth?
About Home in the Cave:
Baby Bat loves his cave home and never wants to leave it. While practicing flapping his wings one night, he falls, and Pluribus Packrat rescues him. They then explore the deepest, darkest corners of the cave where they meet amazing animals—animals that don’t need eyes to see or colors to hide from enemies. Baby Bat learns how important bats are to the cave habitat and how other cave-living critters rely on them for their food. Will Baby Bat finally venture out of the cave to help the other animals?
