Stellaluna by Janell Cannon tells the story of a little fruit bat who is knocked away from her mother when an owl attacks them. After a long night of clinging weakly to a twig, Stellaluna drops down into a bird’s nest full of baby birds. The little fruit bat is adopted by the bird family and learns their bird-like ways even though they are unnatural to her. Eventually, Stellaluna is reunited with her bat family and learns all about how bats live. This book includes two pages of fun and informative notes about bats.
