Bat physiology

Outside And Inside Bats
by Sandra Markle

Markle's Outside and Inside series - other titles include spiders, birds, sharks, snakes, alligators, and more - take kids right inside animals' bodies to figure out how they work. With bats, she explores the intricacies of flight and how bat wings function, how their senses enable them to find specific foods, how they digest their meals (with accompanying gross photographs), and how they raise their young.

Clearly written and well-thought out, this is a good book for kid scientists who are interested in skeletons and other inner workings.
