Susan Detwiler: Bat Count: A Citizen Science Story

Irvine Nature Center

Bat Count tells the tale of young Jojo, who takes part in a favorite family tradition of counting bats for scientists studying their dwindling population. It is a multicultural story of conservation and environmental stewardship, with beautifully rendered illustrations that breathe life into the narrative.

Susan Detwiler is an award-winning children’s book illustrator. Her books include On the Move (NSTA-CBC Outstanding Trade Book); Big Cat, Little Kitty (Mom’s Choice Awards Gold); Pandas’ Earthquake Escape (Mom’s Choice Awards Gold); and One Wolf Howls (Silver Nautilus Book Award) for Arbordale. She is the author/illustrator of Fine Life For A Country Mouse. Susan is a member of the Society of Children’s Book Writers & Illustrators. Books have always been a source of joy in her life, and as a child, she particularly loved books with beautiful illustrations. Susan was educated at the Maryland Institute College of Art and lives with her artist husband in Baltimore.
