About this Book:

Inspired by true stories, A Little Brown Bat Story follows one bat through his daily ritual of eating and sleeping, and his annual migration to a safe spot to hibernate in winter. Through a simple narrative with beautiful illustrations, young readers will learn about Little Brown Bat behavior and habitat, threats to the bats’ survival, and respectful human interaction to help conserve this important and threatened species.

This is the second title in a series called WILDLIFE ON THE MOVE, a set of four board books created in partnership with Maine Audubon. The first book, A Snowy Owl Story, was released in February, 2015. This unique series is written and designed specifically for a preschool market.

Islandport Press Partners with Maine Audubon to Bring the Outdoors into Classrooms

Islandport Press Partners with Maine Audubon to Bring the Outdoors into Classrooms

In 2014, Islandport Press launched a partnership with Maine Audubon to publish a series of children’s books that will help increase awareness about endangered species while raising funds for underserved schools. Proceeds from the Wildlife on the Move series go to helping improve education for Maine children, but that’s not the only way this series is reaching kids. The program is also meeting children in their natural habitats by visiting classrooms across the state.

Melissa Kim, children’s and young adult book editor at Islandport Press and author of the Wildlife on the Move series, has accompanied staff from the Maine Audubon Society on school visits where they speak to the kids about the biological facts of owls and bats. Along with Maine Audubon educator Kim Sanders, Melissa Kim visited schools in Lincolnville, Appleville, and Hope, bringing a box filled with science artifacts. The educational kits features a jumbo-sized version of either A Snowy Owl Story or A Little Brown Bat Story (and launching this Saturday: A Blanding's Turtle Story) plus animal skeletons, droppings, and other educational materials to help illustrate the concepts in the books.
