Separated from her mother before she is old enough to fly, the baby fruit bat finds out that not all winged creatures eat fruit. But swallowing food that crawls is just one of the many amazing things Stellaluna must learn to do. Not that all her lessons have to do with survival, though. For as Stellaluna adapts to the habits of her new family, she learns the essence of friendship in humorous and touching ways.
A Reading Rainbow book. Includes full-color illustrations and a short seciton on the life cycle of bats. 48 pp.
