Going Batty
By Mary Lynn Bushong
  

1     "Dad! Dad! You need to come and see what we found," shouted Tamsyn.
 
2     "What is it?" asked Dad as he put down his newspaper and got out of his chair.
 
3     "Alex caught a flying mouse!" Tamsyn hopped from foot to foot as she waited for her dad to come with her.
 
4     The tiny animal sat atop Alex's gloved hand. The morning was chilly, and it seemed to be soaking up heat through the glove.
 
5     Alex turned his hand one way and then another trying to get the best possible look at it. Tamsyn dragged their father up to get a good look.
 
6     "Is it a bat, Dad?" asked Alex.
 
7     Dad nodded. "It's a little brown bat."
 
8     "What do we want to do with it?' asked Alex.
 
9     "Well, we don't want to kill it, said Dad. "Bats are valuable animals."
 
10     "Does that mean he's worth a lot of money?" asked Tamsyn.
 
11     Dad laughed. "No, sweetie, it means that bats do an important job. Did you know that a little bat like this eats his weight in insects every night?"
 
12     "How do they catch bugs when it is dark out?" asked Tamsyn.
