Many different animals eat bat poop!

What kid isn't intrigued by bats and caves?

In HOME IN THE CAVE by award winning author Janet Halfmann, young readers will enjoy the story of Baby Bat who wants to learn more about his home. One night, Baby Bat practices flying, but when he falls, he's rescued by Pluribus Packrat. From there, they go on an exciting journey that takes young readers through the deepest, darkest corners of a cave. Meet some of the animals that call the cave home and learn how important bats are to the ecosystem.

Young readers will especially enjoy learning that many different animals eat bat poop, technically known as guano. Gross, yes, but an important fact in the habitat and something that will have creative minds reading on.

A "Creative Minds" section at the end of the book provides activities and more information on all things nocturnal. As with all other Halfmann books, the story provides an entertaining backdrop for an educational experience, sure to delight any young reader on the search for science.
