Running with the Bats / Corriendo con los murciélagos
By Chris Holaves
Children's fiction - bilingual
ISBN:978-0-9792991-1-7


Joe recalls his dad’s words, “To be the greatest baseball player, you must be strong, be brave!” when he thinks zillions of flying insects and swooping bats are after him. Caught by his fear, he knows he has to reach home to escape these scary creatures. He’d better be strong, be brave!
 
José se acuerda de las palabras de su papá, «Para ser el mejor beisbolista, tienes que ser fuerte, ¡sé valiente!» cuando cree que lo persiguen volando y abatiéndose miles y miles de insectos y murciélagos. Atrapado por su miedo, sabe que tiene que llegar a casa para escaparse de estos seres espantosos. ¡Tiene que ser fuerte, valiente!


Enjoyed the Book!

William Hageman, Chicago Tribune Staff Reporter

William Hageman, Chicago Tribune staff reporter, states, "I enjoyed Running with the Bats on two levels: First, I was a kid once, and bats were always fascinating. And second, I enjoyed it as a parent. I just wish I still had little ones around the house to read it with."
