Bats Around the Clock


Bats Around the Clock
by Kathi Appelt
illustrated by Melissa Sweet

Join the bats of 'American Batstand' as they dance their way through a 12 hour dancing extravaganza. We adore Melissa Sweet's darling little bats and Kathi Appelt's  fun and bouncy rhyming text.

This book is adorable, but as far as teaching, it isn't very heavy on material for kids learning to tell time. There is a clock at the bottom of each page that marks the changing hours (and the resulting change in dance steps, like the jitterbug, the twist, the bugaloo...) Use this book as a supplement to your unit, once your kids have a grasp on reading clocks.
