Geoffrey here, the Fragile Earth Orphanage Librarian, highlighting one of the newest books to hit our library shelves. Our book of the week is Bats at the Beach by Brian Lies. And we’re proud to have one of the young bats from the story staying with us at the orphanage, so I’ll let him tell you all about the book.
Do you ever wonder what happens at the beach, after the sun goes down? When people have left for the day?
Sun slips down and all is still,
and soon we can’t tell sky from hill.
Now from barn and cave and rafter,
bats pour out with shrieks of laughter.
The rising moon can grow no fatter
as sky lights up with gleeful chatter;
Quick, call out! Tell all you can reach –
the moon is just perfect for bats at the beach!
And that’s when other species hit the waves!
Some are braver than others – some don’t make it in past their ankles!
We have bonfires …
and roast bugmallows ….
What do you do at the beach?
