Cannon, Janell. Stellaluna. Harcourt Children’s Books, 1993. 46 p. (978-0152802172) Pre, Pri. After she falls headfirst into a bird’s nest, a baby bat is raised like a bird until she is reunited with her mother. Also available in Spanish as Stelaluna (978-8426128492).
PICTURE BOOK. Stellaluna is a baby bat who is accidentally separated from her mother and ends up being raised by a mother bird, along with her three baby birds. Although Stellaluna is a fruit bat, she tries to fit in with the customs of the birds by eating insects, sleeping at night, and she sleeps in their nest instead of hanging upside down by her feet. I would use this book with 2nd-4th graders. I would have them compare/contrast birds and bats.

Do bats give you the willies? Then it's about time, teachers, that you met Stellaluna. Stellaluna is an adorable baby bat that stars in Janell Cannon's award winning book, Stellaluna. Although the book was published in 1993, it holds timeless appeal for children. In fact, just this year, School Library Journal named it one of the "Top 100 Picture Books" of all time. Stellaluna was featured on Reading Rainbow (my all time favorite TV show for children), as well as in the movie, I Am Sam. It has also been released in an animated version on DVD by MGM & Scholastic. If you haven't fallen in love with Stellaluna yet, you need to crawl out from under that rock where you've been hiding! Before reading this book to my class, I like to do 2 activities. The first one is designed to gauge their feelings about bats before we study them. To this end, my students add their name to a graph like this: [One of my anchor activities each morning is a graph. My students join the graph of the day upon arriving at school. There's a new graph every day, so this is a rote action by my kiddos.] Be sure to save this graph so that you can compare it to your students' feelings about bats AFTER you've studied them. The second thing we do is complete a K-W-L chart about bats. NOW we are ready to read the book. By the way, I always pull Stellaluna out in early October. My school no longer celebrates Halloween. By studying bats, I can give a nod to this holiday without breaking the rules. I hope you will have time to come back soon for more ideas about teaching with Stellaluna. P.S. In response to a request, the bat graph is now available via Google Docs. Use this link: bat graph You may like these other resources for October: Both are available in either my TpT Store or my TN Shop.
Title: Stellaluna Author: Janell Cannon Awards: ABBY Winner Look inside the book at Amazon here. "Stellaluna" must be one of the first few children's books that I've invested in (SGD$30 was a lot to spend on a book during the early days of of NIE). I discovered it in Borders. And when I saw the book, I knew I must have it. My friends and I were looking for a good story book to share as part of our project for a KWL strategy for a lesson demonstration. We used it for a tuning in activity for the children to be more interested about bats (since Stellaluna was just so adorable) before an information text about bats is presented. I was in charge of reading the story. Anyway, after the entire presentation, our tutor said, "Excellent!" and we got an A for that. And I can't remember how many times after that I've used "Stellaluna" in class for other activities. It had remained at the top on my favourite list for a long time. Well, I have the Stellaluna beanie and Stellaluna is part of the wall mural in my school's library :P The story is about Stellaluna, a baby bat who 'lost' her mother after an owl attacked them. She eventually landed up in a bird nest where three baby birds live. Stellaluna eventually gave up her 'bat's habits' and learned to be like a bird to be accepted, which was really comical. In the end, she found her bat family again where she found it was alright for her to behave like a bat once again. I love the underlying message that everyone of us is unique. We do not have to change ourselves or others to suit us. We just have to accept one another as we are. The illustrations are really beautiful. See!

It's Book Club Friday! Go link up with Heather @ Blonde...Undercover Blonde and share what you are reading this week! I finished reading the 50 Shades of Grey trilogy last night. I read all 3 books in one week if that tells you anything. Here is a description from Amazon on book one: "When literature student Anastasia Steele goes to interview young entrepreneur Christian Grey, she encounters a man who is beautiful, brilliant, and intimidating. The unworldly, innocent Ana is startled to realize she wants this man and, despite his enigmatic reserve, finds she is desperate to get close to him. Unable to resist Ana’s quiet beauty, wit, and independent spirit, Grey admits he wants her, too—but on his own terms. Shocked yet thrilled by Grey’s singular erotic tastes, Ana hesitates. For all the trappings of success—his multinational businesses, his vast wealth, his loving family—Grey is a man tormented by demons and consumed by the need to control. When the couple embarks on a daring, passionately physical affair, Ana discovers Christian Grey’s secrets and explores her own dark desires. Erotic, amusing, and deeply moving, the Fifty Shades Trilogy is a tale that will obsess you, possess you, and stay with you forever." My thoughts: I LOVED these 3 books...I am slightly depressed that they are over. I first heard about them a few weeks ago on the Today show, then again on the morning radio talk shows, then again on E News, then several friends were reading them and so on and so on. These books are everywhere and it seems everyone is talking about them. I had to read them. I have a couple girlfriends at work reading them and they email me all the time telling me they can't put them down. Now, there are some really intense, kind of crazy scenes in these books...especially the first one. But once you read more and learn more about the characters and the reasons why some of these things are happening, you will be sucked in. I love the plot, love the characters and even loved all the juicy scenes (well, most of them...read it, you'll understand). The movie rights have even been sold...so that will be interesting! Not sure how they will make a movie out of these books but I am sure it will be good! Happy Reading and Happy Friday, friends!
