Book Review: 'Littlebat's Halloween Story' by Diane Mayr

✰✰✰✰✰ Littlebat lives with his Motherbat in the attic of a public library. Littlebat loves to listen to stories, but he really wants to see the pictures. Motherbat explains, “It’s dangerous.” Bats must never be seen by people, but Littlebat still wants to look. Someday there might be a time when he can see the pictures, but he has to wait for changes. As the seasons pass, he listens to stories and waits patiently for the changes. Then one day right before their winter sleep, the time was just right.

The Bottom Line: Kids will love this gentle seasonal tale. Kendall’s colorful illustrations go perfectly with the text showing the seasonal changes. Highly recommended for both bedtime and storytime reading.

Details: Littlebat’s Halloween Story written by Diane Mayr & illustrated by Gideon Kendall. Hardcover picture book published by Albert Whitman & Company in 2001. 32 p. ISBN: 0-8075-7629-8
