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.

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.
