Why do we need bats? / by Laura K. Murray.

"Discover why bats are important to our world in this photo-filled nonfiction book for budding young scientists. Does the spooky image of a bat scare you? These unusual mammals are good for much more than a fright. Bats help pollinate plants. They help keep pests away from crops. And the echolocation they use to find their way around has taught us a lot about navigation. With eye-catching photos, quick facts, and beyond-the-book back matter, Why Do We Need Bats? will have young researchers and science fans exploring more about the nature we need" -- Provided by publisher.
