I'm trying to not only catch up on my picture book reading but also check off more and more books on the 1001 children's book list. When I found out that this book had been featured on Reading Rainbow I decided to give it a shot.
Stellaluna is a small bat who becomes separated from its mother after an owl attack. She finds a nest with some baby birds and joins the family. But she never quite fits in with them.
I thought this was a cute book. The illustrations were great and looked like the illustrator had carefully studied photographs of real life bats and birds. I also like the message that you can have a lot in common with others but still be true to yourself.
3 out of 5 stars.
