Addy the Bat and a Visit to Cat by Lily Lee is the delightful story of Addy the Bat who goes to visit Cat with her friend Josie. Addy is a fruit bat and lives in the forest. She has lots of friends, but Josie is her best friend. Josie is a wonder dog. When they go to visit Cat, she gives them cookies to eat and plays chess with them. They also play the care game where Cat teaches them a few 'catmandments.' They all have an good time together, eating, playing and talking. Finally Josie and Addy go back to their homes after having a fun time.
The book is really cute and the cut-out and handmade pictures complement the author's words and thoughts very well. The pictures give a personality to the characters and breathe life and movement into the scenes and story. It is a good book for bedtime storytelling and parents and grandparents can use it for their kids and grandkids while putting them to bed. The book is good also for read aloud sessions in classrooms and school libraries. I recommend the book because, apart from being a cute story, it also conveys a beautiful message to young readers.
Books that have a concept or convey a message are ideal to teach kids new things and positive thoughts. It is easy to make them understand through a story than explaining it to them otherwise. The idea of having cut-out and handmade pictures is very original and gives a personal touch to the book. An adorable story book for kids.
