Whoosh! Big brown bats rush off on their nightly hunt, but one stays behind to have a baby.

As summer turns to fall, the baby bat grows bigger. He learns to fly, then to hunt. Soon he has fattened himself up for the long winter ahead, when he’ll hibernate until the spring sun returns once more.
 
Big Brown Bat is a 2009 Bank Street - Best Children's Book of the Year.
