❤From the author of “Corduroy”comes this charming tale! Sure to warm your heart and put a smile on your face! ❤ Hattie the Bat lives in a theater, and is told to hide out of sight backstage when a new production goes live. Will Hattie stay put, or will she be unable to resist the spotlight? Will the audience react with FRIGHT…or DELIGHT? Long-sought by collectors of vintage children’s books, this charming tale by Don Freeman is currently out of print, but now you can own an enhanced version of the story in app form! Your kids will fall in love with Hattie, the spirited little bat who can’t resist swooping into the spotlight on opening night of the play. Rather than being a disaster, her appearance becomes the highlight of the show, and saves the day! ➤ DISCUSSION TOPICS / OPPORTUNITIES TO LEARN: -Why did Mr. Collins want Hattie to stay out of sight? Do you think he was right to ask her to hide? -The story had a happy ending; can you think of other ways the audience might have reacted to Hattie’s appearance? -When Hattie flew on stage, she was clearly dis-obeying something she had been told to do. Is it ever OK for us to dis-obey orders we’ve been given? If so, under what circumstances? -This story is also an excellent introduction to the word of stage plays / theater. You can discuss with your child the role of actors, props, scenery, etc. and use the story as a launching point to perhaps put on a play at home, or go see a play in a theater. ➤ PERSONALIZE THE STORY: -You have the option of recording your own narration, or writing your own version of the story. ➤ FEATURES to ENCOURAGE YOUNG READERS: -“Karaoke-style” play-back means that each individual word lights up as it is read by the narrator. -Various options for playback: page-by-page (“Read to Me”), automatic playback of the entire book (“Auto Play”), or disable the narration (“Auto Play”). -A child can touch an individual word in the text to hear it read aloud. -When an object in the illustrations is touched, the name of it appears and is read aloud. -Professional children’s book narrator Alan Scofield’s reading of the tale is sure to capture your child’s attention.
