Bat and Stellaluna Activities for Toddlers and Preschoolers

Nocturnal Animals and especially bats are a great theme for around Halloween time as the clocks go back and it’s more likely that children will encounter them whilst moving around rather than late at night. They can also be portrayed as a little scary so this week’s featured book for the Virtual Book Club for Kids is aimed at helping bats seem a little less scary just like we did with the Monster Themed Week. The featured book is Stellaluna by Janell Cannon but as you scroll down you will find other bat-themed books for toddlers and preschoolers that could be added to your book basket this week.

Stellaluna by Janell Cannon is a fantastic book and one that would make a great addition to any bookshelf. The book tells the story of little Stellaluna a baby fruit bat that gets lots and ends up living instead of with her bat family with some birds – as the book moves on she finds her bat family and discovers that bats aren’t all that different than the birds that she was living with and not at all scary.
