About the book:

Sandra Markle, author of more than 36 nonfiction books for children and a former elementary school teacher, brings her expertise to this magnificent exploration of the world of bats. The simple language and easy-to-follow explanations ("Check out the W-shaped back teeth of this insect-eating Nyctalus bat. They're just right for crushing and slicing crunchy insects into a lumpy bug pudding.") make Outside and Inside Bats a pleasure to read and a fun way to learn about one of the most curious animals in the world. The in-depth descriptions examine everything from the inner workings of a vampire bat's intestines to the structure of a bat's bones. You'll find out why some bats rely on hearing and others on sight and smell, why a bat's wings are different than a bird's, and how baby bats are born. The abundant close-up, full-color photographs and helpful glossary make this an excellent introduction to bats and to biology in general. (Ages 6 to 10)
