   Good starter book on bats.
This book came as part of a bundle with a bat box set. I got them for my daughter, who loves bats and wants to provide them with alternate homes just in case they need them. It is very informative, has lots of beautiful pictures and is easy to understand while still giving warnings about handling bats and describing steps when one is encountered.
   Good book!
This book has accurate information, addresses several myths and is wonderfully illustrated. I would recommend this book to anyone.
   Mosquito control how-to!
Bought Bat houses to fight mosquitoes and this book is a must explain where and how to hang the boxes.
   Christmas present for bat loving nephew
This was a Christmas present for a nephew who is really into the bats. He started really liking it and seemed to read it right after all the presents were opened.
   Very Pleased
Bought it used for 9 cents and looks like new.
   very informative
I just wanted a simple little book to give me the basics on bats, and this did the trick, I was very pleased with it, it listed lots of different kinds of bats and what area in the United States you might find them when they came out, great little book.
   I was disappointed - not what I expected
I was disappointed, not what I expected. Too much personal info is not enough in the category of academic experience, including miserable failures at the bat, attraction and nurture.
   Quick reference book
For novices, great go to book.
   ID your bats.....
ID 'ing bats, and reading about individual types, is great. Pretty close to nothing about creating a bat house and attracting bats.
   ... in the way of information about bat and I LOVED all the pictures
This book offered everything I wanted in the way of information about the bat and I LOVED all the pictures! The pictures really add to the value of this book! Important facts related to bats were identified and explained. I feel satisfied that I have this one book about bats to start with.
