Bats in the Air, Bats in My Hair
"Bats in the Air, Bats in My Hair" is for the Kindergarten to 3rd grade age group. It is written in rhyme to not only make it fun to read, but to also make it easy to learn to read. Sally goes to her Grandmother's expecting a normal visit, but is surprised by some very comic bats that only want to have some fun. "There were bats in the air and bats in her hair...They wiggled on the floor and she ran for the door." The illustrations are bold and vivid to capture a child's attention. You have to look close at the pictures...you don't know what you might see the bats doing!!
"There were bats in the air and bats in her hair...They wiggled on the floor as she ran for the door...Some flew into the hall..Some smashed into the wall."

As a future teacher, I will be sure to include this book in my classroom library. It's great for all elementary ages, and could be used as a fun read aloud or to teach a skill such as poetry or characterization. Students will love the colorful pictures and endearing characters! I love this book, and would suggest it for any teacher or parent looking for a story to entrance students.

Roanoke Times Book Review
Local author, Martha Hamlett, shares an adorable tale in "Bats in the Air, Bats in My Hair." For an audience of kindergarten through third grade, the story, based on an actual event from her childhood, became a fun rhyming verse with vibrant illustrations.
Young Sally spends a night at her grandmother’s house only to be woken by a fluttering in the dark. Bats in the air and bats in her hair act silly in dancing, trying on necklaces and looking at themselves in the mirror. Attempting to clear the room of the intruders, Sally takes a broom to bat them away, and then gets her grandmother into the act. A window is opened and the bats fly out, but Sally’s dreams are then filled with bats in the air, bats in her hair.
The illustrations add much to the story, giving the bats a silly side to embrace, while the verse makes the book a read aloud joy.
