Customer Reviews

I love this app!

My wife and I rescue bats and do some children's education classes around the state. This is an awesome app to get kids excited about bats! We teach that bats are not the scary creatures that they are made out to be in movies and games. This book has some great interactions with allowing kids to fly the bat and even send sound waves just like real bats. Thank you for this app!
