"Martha will delight audiences of any age with her
wonderful book. I feel honored to have had my class
get to meet her and hear about her writing process."

Greenville, SC area Teacher
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.

- Heather Froeschl, The Roanoke Times, Roanoke, VA
