NEW BILINGUAL CHILDREN'S BOOK

Running with the Bats / Corriendo con los murciƩlagos

The bats are coming!

They’re flying this way

At about dusk

When I finish my play.

Look up in the sky!

They’re not far away.

The bats are coming

At the end of the day.                                      

They’re the hunting bats

Out chasing their prey.

Look! See them come.

Don’t run away.

As you read this book,                     

You’ll be sure to say,

“I’m

Running with the Bats.

Get out of the way!”

 

 

Coming This March!
