The simple text and excellent pictures make this an ideal introductory book.
The Life Cycle of a Bat
by Rebecca Sjonger & Bobbie Kalman
This book is a bit wordier and the contents could use some tweaking - Making babies is after Nursery colonies, Bat pups, and Growing up - but it provides good information in an easy-to-understand way. Kids will enjoy the colour photographs.
