Default Batworld has new children's book

i am a huge fan of this org. http://batworld.org/
They will have a children's book called Baby See Through that is on my Christmas wish list for my youngest grandchildren. I thought I would share the announcement here too for it will be released in about 4 weeks. If your interested it is a great way to educate about these most misunderstood valuable and interested creatures.
Here is the facebook link

I am forever a Lil DRac fan. Have so enjoyed seeing him rescued and growing up. I hope to make a sculpture of him for them this winter.

ANything that eats it's weight in mosquitoes has my gratitude. I can't remember if they call the Brazilian brown bat the million dollar bat, or the billion dollar bat, but one way or the other they eat a lot of crop harming insects. If people would look at them that way, their feelings about them might change.

After I get my sculpture of lil drac done I want to attempt making a clay bat house or two. I always wanted wooden ones but lack the tools to make them, clay tho I have and I think I could make the inside appealing for roosting. I want to see if this org can give me some tips before I attempt. I hope the book does well too. We have just got to start promoting natures way of insect control and not our chemical way for our future's sake. I think they are incredibly interesting and I love that the babies rock themselves.

It's not that I dislike them, they're ok.......and I do understand how valuable they are in keeping insect population down.......I'm just not overly in love with them, LOL They're 'cute' but not 'cuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuute!!!!' haha

You know how I hate hate hate spiders and are scared to death of them?! Well I don't kill or try to kill them when they are weaving webs around my tomatoes and peppers. My son started ripping down webs and was hunting to kill and I told him NO! Let them eat the other bugs.......those spiders don't want to eat your maters! LOL

A place for everything and everything in it's place

I am not dissing I promise. I understand. baby Drac with his binky tho. sighs... he stole my heart. Rocky rocky rocky. He was a very cute baby to me.

I think the book is a great way to help raise awareness and change opinion from the standard horror movie depiction of them.

Then again i am weird enough to try to save my paralyzed spider. IT finally died. darn it. What can I say I am weird like that.

One of my favorite books when I was a kid was Stellaluna. Bats have always been one of those weird, never talked about things! I bet a lot of kids would be interested in this.

I read the story of the White Lady to my children out loud when they were young. It is about an albino bat. WHen I cut paper bats to hang up in October I always cut out a little white one because of her. I thought the man was mean when seeing her fly through the fan he turned it up to see what would happen (she went over instead of through) and releasing her further and further away to see if she would get lost, but she didn't and the story was interesting because it showed just how amazing bats are in their abilities.

I would have given anything to have my bat houses up this month, after our drought and mosquito less summer it lulled me into a false sense of security. They came back, the asian tiger ones that are big enough to carry you away in droves. I worried about my birds and West Nile. I still think that is the mosquito that brought us heart worms. We just didnt' have them until that particular mosquito began to appear, now you seldom see the little mosquitoes we use to have.

I will have to look for STellaluna thanks for telling me about it~!
