I See a Bat

Holiday House. (I Like to Read). Apr. 2023. 32p. Tr $15.99. ISBN 9780823452651.
PreS-Gr 2–A charming addition to the “I Like to Read” series. Meisel continues the adventures of the curious dog from his book I See a Cat. This time, the dog watches out the window as the sun goes down and the bats come out. It’s not until the moon is out that the dog realizes the food bowl is empty; but by then, his beloved boy is fast asleep. Simple, three-word sentences and structured repetition are perfect for kids learning to read. The colorful pictures effectively illustrate each sentence, helping guide new readers as they piece words together. For a book with few words, Meisel still manages to convey warmth and gentle humor with this simple but engaging story for new readers.
VERDICT Perfect for all early reader collections.
