6. Bats, (National Geographic Readers) This level 2 reader is a great book to encourage a child to explore non-fiction books. The photos are of world bat species—full of scientific facts.
7. Bats in the Library, Brian Lies. More adventures of the crazy colony of bats which won the E.B. White Read Aloud Award. A splendid bed-time story.
8. Zipping, Zapping, Zooming Bats, Ann Earle. (Read Aloud and find out more about science series)
9. The Secret Lives of Bats, Merlin Tuttle. Suitable for older children, this book gives an insight into bat science and the strange world of frog-eating bats and vampire bats—which turn out to have a social order that is closer to primates than you might think!
10. Bats, Phil Richardson, Whittet British Natural History series, new edition 2017. This book tops my list for adults but would also be a great bat book to give a young person (10 upwards) as the text is so accessible. Phil Richardson has written other bat books, all of which are good, but this book focuses on British bats.
