Amara and the Bats
Author(s): Emma Reynolds

Environmental activism gets a nocturnal twist in this utterly charming picture book about a young girl and her mission to save the bats!

Amara loves bats! Her favorite thing to do is to collect bat facts and watch the amazing mammals fly at night by her house. But when Amara moves to a new town, she learns that her beloved bats no longer roost nearby because so many trees are being cut down.

Amara is upset. What can she do to help? She’s just one person, and the problem feels so much bigger than her. But after doing some research, she discovers that there are many young people making big changes all around the world. Inspired to take action, Amara gathers her new friends to help save the bats. Together, she knows they can make a difference!

Emma Reynolds crafts an inspiring story about community action, perseverance, and what to do in the face of climate anxiety. At its heart, this is a story about hope and finding a place to call home.

* "Amara's unabashed loved for bats will help challenge preconceived notions about the often-misunderstood animals, and even though this is fiction, it contains great reference content, including nicely labeled illustrations of identifiable species of bat. . . . An inviting and informative picture about wildlife conservation that might inspire kids to take action in their own communities."
"Full of informative, fun, and engaging messages about bats, such as what it takes for them to thrive and the food chains they’re part of. . . . A captivating book about nature, bats, and environmental activism."
“This is such a phenomenal book.”
“We need more books like this.”
"Amara and the Bats is an uplifting picture book about how one person’s actions can make a BIG difference."
