Now that summer beckons, I am walking around the lake by my house. It is approximately 2.7 miles and takes me 45-50 minutes, depending on how fast I walk. Today I saw a turtle resting. I don't know what species of turtle it was but I stopped to watch it until it got tired of being stared at and crawled back into the lake.
This week's topic is not an animal I really want to get close to. A Place For Bats by Melissa Stewart. This book tells you about different types of bats as well as what people can do to coexist with them.
Here is a sample: "When people build bat boxes that are the right size and shape, bats can live and grow."
The illustrations by the artist, Higgins Bond, enhance this book.
