    This is my first favorite book ever. My mother bought it for me as a kid and it came with a Stellanuna plush doll. Manly, right? Mom read it to me whenever I asked until I lost Stellaluna in the first grade. (TRAGIC.) My mother, being the most awesome of mothers, put up Missing Poster signs for Stellaluna. No one ever called with information, no ransom notes were left next to my lunch box, and Stellaluna wasn't hiding inside my hamper or under my bed. Stellaluna was gone.

I thought back to the book, and how the birds cared for Stellaluna while she was lost - teaching her to sit upright during the day and all that - and how her time with the birds - and me - was short-lived so she could return to a life of living in the night and sleeping upside down. I think maybe my bat went home.

In schools, teachers teachs us the right ways, and various aspects in life that can equip us in order to survive life. As days passes by, we finished our education and learn to spread our wings and fly. We visits places, find ourselves and fits in. And as we go places we meet people and accustom ourselves to the rights ways we should be doing a long time ago. As we learn the right ways, we tell our families and friends that this should be this and that should be that. Eventually, they imitate us thinking its the right for them, but in the contrary it's not. Life is not always the same. What's good for Johnny might not be good for Peter and vice versa. We learn things the way it should be learn but we apply ways in order for us to live the life that we can enjoy. In the end, we may be different in each other but we all have the chance to fly.

    I first saw this book on an episode of “Reading Rainbow” (my favorite TV series when I was little!) and I instantly fell in love with this book! “Stellaluna” is a gorgeous picture book by Janell Cannon and it is about how a baby bat named Stellaluna learns how to live with the birds after she is separated by her mother during an owl attack. “Stellaluna” is truly one of the best books for bat lovers everywhere! Once there lived a mother fruit bat that gave birth to a baby bat named Stellaluna and I first saw this book on an episode of “Reading Rainbow” (my favorite TV series when I was little!) and I instantly fell in love with this book! “Stellaluna” is a gorgeous picture book by Janell Cannon and it is about how a baby bat named Stellaluna learns how to live with the birds after she is separated by her mother during an owl attack. “Stellaluna” is truly one of the best books for bat lovers everywhere! Once there lived a mother fruit bat that gave birth to a baby bat named Stellaluna and one night, Mother Bat was carrying Stellaluna while searching for some ripe fruit to eat. Suddenly, an owl spots the bats and tries to catch them and Stellaluna ended up falling out of her mother’s pouch and ended up falling on a tree branch and then eventually falls into a bird’s nest. For awhile, Stellaluna had been living with the birds and learning their ways and started acting like a true bird, even learning how to fly! Excellent! This book is simply truly excellent! Janell Cannon has certainly done an excellent job at both illustrating and writing this book. Janell Cannon makes the story extremely exciting and heartwarming as it details the adventures that Stellaluna embarks on after she is separated from her mother and lives with the birds. I loved the way that Stellaluna maintains a strong relationship with the birds even though she is a bat, which proves that no matter how different you are, you are still a special person on the inside. I also thought that it was really cute to see Stellaluna acting like a bird as she provides so much humor for the book by trying to act like a bird in a bat body. Janell Cannon also did a great job at providing tension in this book, especially when Stellaluna is separated from her mother and many children will definitely feel afraid for Stellaluna as the idea of losing one’s parent is frightening to a child. Janell Cannon’s illustrations are simply gorgeous and realistic, especially of the images of Stellaluna herself as she has huge brown eyes and has golden fur all over her body which makes her look beautiful and cute at the same time! I also loved the images of Stellaluna flying through the sky as she is the one character who stands out during the night sky as she seems to glow in the blue night sky while she is flying in the air. All in all, “Stellaluna” is an instant treat of a baby bat’s amazing tale that you just cannot resist to read to your children! For anyone who love reading books about bats and the importance of a true family, this is definitely a book that I would highly recommend to children ages four and up.

The illustrations alone merit five stars. Just beautiful artwork.

    We all loved this book. Apparently I reserved something called a "big book" so when I went to go pick it up, it wouldn't even fit in my bag. It was this big floppy paperback book that was roughly the size of my kitchen countertop. This made it very difficult to read. Trying to hold open the floppy book so that I could read and the kids could see the pictures was very difficult. But it was worth it. The bigger pictures kept my 3 yr old twins engaged while the story kept my 5 yr old interested. An We all loved this book.

The bigger pictures kept my 3 yr old twins engaged while the story kept my 5 yr old interested. And the illustrations are actually quite detailed, making Stellaluna the bat look positively adorable. The big size of the book enhanced this. Somewhere around a level 2 reading book, It's the story of a bat who gets separated from her mother when young and tries to learn to ignore her nature and be a bird. A fun story about learning to fit in and being yourself, a good lesson for any kid. A friend on GR recommended this and I'm glad we read it. I hadn't heard of Cannon before, but hopefully can pick up some more of her books.

    I have read this book to my children 752 times (well maybe that's an exaggeration). And I've cried 751 (that's not.) It's that moment when the mom says, "You are MY Stellaluna." *sob* My kids weren't weepy, btw. Nope, just me. This has to be one of my favorite books for the 6 and under crowd- amazingly beautiful pictures I was tempted to frame, a nice (but not annoying) message about acceptance and friendship, makes you laugh and cry.

    I read this book to a classroom of first graders The children loved this story! When baby bat, Stellaluna, is separated from her mother, she tries to be a bird. She does not hang upside down; she stays in the nest, she does not eat fruit; she eats grasshoppers, she does not sleep during the day; she sleeps at night. It was so fun to watch the kids be distressed by the mother bird trying to make Stellaluna into something she's not. This is a classic story for a good reason!

    Flying one night with her mother, a young fruit bat named Stellaluna is separated from her parent when they are attacked by an owl. Adopted by the bird family into whose nest she falls, our noctilionine heroine must learn new ways, accepting bugs as food, and sleeping standing up, rather than hanging by her wings. When she is unexpectedly reunited with her bat mother, Stellaluna learns the true ways of her kind, which she attempts to share with her adoptive avian siblings. In the end, all must a Flying one night with her mother, a young fruit bat named Stellaluna is separated from her parent when they are attacked by an owl. Adopted by the bird family into whose nest she falls, our noctilionine heroine must learn new ways, accepting bugs as food, and sleeping standing up, rather than hanging by her wings. When she is unexpectedly reunited with her bat mother, Stellaluna learns the true ways of her kind, which she attempts to share with her adoptive avian siblings. In the end, all must accept that while they are the same in some ways - they all fly! - they are different in others, and that is OK. Originally published more than twenty years ago in 1993, Janell Cannon's Stellaluna has become a modern picture-book classic, exploring such themes as the loss of a parent, cross-cultural (or species) adoption, and learning to accept yourself and others. It also teaches young readers and listeners a little bit about the natural history of bats and birds, highlighting both the ways in which they are similar and those in which they are different. An afterword gives more information about bats. The artwork, done in acrylics and colored pencil, is lovely, capturing the poignancy of Stellaluna's journey, and the beauty of the world around her. Recommended to anyone looking for children's stories about difference and acceptance, or about the wonders of the natural world.

As bellies neared fullness, each book club member shared a picture she drew of a favorite character or scene and shared a discussion question with the group. Open-ended questions ensued with . . . What makes Stellaluna brave? Which is your favorite character from the book, and why? What amazed me the most was how thoroughly the girls had read the book, remembering even minute details. From here, the girls watched a video adaptation of the book entitled Stellaluna (2004), directed by William R. Kowalchuk Jr. Book Club Babes II were also given the option of creating their own bat by following "How to Draw a Bat" instructions found on Pinterest. Miss Elise, the young lady who selected the book for discussion, sent fellow readers home with a goodie bag filled with Stellaluna activity pages, a birdhouse, and paints.

    Sweet story about a young bat who loses her mother after they are attacked by an owl and is subsequently adopted by a family of birds. It delightfully demonstrates how diverse creatures can coexist. The illustrations are lovely and luminescent.

From Kirkus: "With a warm, nicely honed narration, Cannon strikes just the right balance between accurate portrayal of the bats and the fantasy that dramatizes their characteristics. Her illustrations, in luminous acrylics and color pencils, are exquisite. The appealingly furry, wide-eyed, fawn-colored bats have both scientific precision and real character; they're displayed against intense skies or the soft browns and greens of the woodland in spare, beautifully constructed (occasionally even humorous) compositions. Delightful and informative but never didactic: a splendid debut." From Booklist: Cannon's delightful story is full of gentle humor, and even young children will understand the little bat's need to fit in. Cannon provides good information about bats in the story, amplifying it in two pages of notes at the end of the book. Her full-page colored-pencil-and-acrylic paintings fairly glow: Stellaluna's depiction reflects the starlight and moonlight of the bat's name, and the pictures of the creature hauling herself onto a limb, hanging by her thumbs, and "joy-flying" are truly amusing."

There are also two pages of notes on bats at the back of the book, lending this text to a science lesson or a unit on animals. The reading level is for kindergarten to grade 2 students. The large full-color illustrations are accompanied by small sketch-like drawings that show Stellaluna’s mother searching for her throughout the story. As with many picture books, the illustrations are so elaborate non-readers can tell the story in their own words using the pictures.

Also funny to see the young birds trying to hang upside down. :) Educational notes about bats are provided at the end of the book and a lovely blurb about the author and how she spent years developing summer reading programs for children. I love this: These programs emphasize information about and involvement with animals, especially those not popularly thought of as cute and cuddly, in an effort to dispel erroneous myths. This same love and respect for all creatures inspired her to choose bats as the subject of her first children's book. <3

    I had only ever read the first few pages prior to today, and I thought this book would be sad. It isn't, it is freaking hilarious!!! The pictures (and the premise) add a lot to the humor -- the idea of a baby fruit bat being adopted by birds is about as hilarious as the idea of Simba being adopted by Timon and Pumba in The Lion King. My favorite moment would be Stellaluna hanging by her thumbs...just the very idea.

Anyway, there is a lot to work with in this book for different character voices, and the pictures are also wonderful. The text is not overly-difficult. A good "read aloud" book, though if I were to purchase it myself I would definitely want the hardcover version, as the board book's illustrations are not large enough to easily read to a group of preschoolers.

    Such a sweet little bat. I love the effort Stellaluna makes to fit in with her bird fosters, and the efforts they make to be more like her. And it has a happy ending, which is always nice in a book about critters. [That's right, kill the kids all you want, as in [book:The Gashlycrumb Tinies|47558], but don't kill the critters, or I'll get cranky]

I really enjoyed this book and feel like this has become an instant classic in children's pictures book. We meet Stellaluna who is a newborn fruit bat who still has much to learn about what they eat, how to fly, and how to avoid danger. Her mother tries to teach her and successful they fly into the night looking for food until suddenly out of nowhere this Owl appears and tries to kill them. Luckily for Stellaluna she survive the crash but the whereabouts of her mother is unknown and now she is all alone with nowhere to call home. Until one day this bird notices that Stellaluna is lonely and decides to include her into her family home and quickly Stellaluna learns the new rules of living with birds and how they fly and eat which is quite difficult for her because she is a bat not a bird. While they have become a close knit family, Stellaluna needs to learn how to be on her own and soon meets other bats including her mother. Time has passed tremendously and we see how Stellaluna grows and it was nice to see that her mother wasn't killed by the owl. While she has met her mother again, she is still close to her other family and compromises to meet in the middle and show the birds her world of a bat in the nighttime. What impressed me the most about this book is the author did her research about fruit bats and how these were suppose to be drawn, how they fly, and practically every single question you may be wondering after reading the book. I was grateful that in the last few pages she writes the facts about fruit bats and I believe that is insightful and makes in intriguing for the little kids who read this book. It shows that the author did their homework and should be rewarded for their hard efforts! I thoroughly enjoyed this book and I would highly recommend everyone to read it and I wouldn't be surprise if this becomes a series and not just a movie.

Stellaluna begins to see how different she is from her new mother and brothers and sisters when they do weird things like eat worms, sleep right-side up, and sleep at night. Stellaluna finally meets her real mother and all the other bats and realizes why she felt like she didn’t belong with the bird family. She learns that she does in fact sleep upside down and that she is nocturnal! Response: Stellaluna is a great children’s book that is worthy of a 5 star rating. The book does a wonderful job of educating its readers on bats and birds and the difference between them. The artwork is beautifully drawn and the illustrations do a great job of helping to tell the story of Stellaluna. As our textbook states a good children’s book “expands awareness,” (TMY, 2010, p. 9) and the story of Stellaluna does just that for its readers. Classroom connection: Stellaluna would be a great way for teachers to teach their class about bats and birds and the differences between the two. During a science lesson discussing bats, the teacher can read Stellaluna and the students will gain a lot of knowledge about bats from the story. Although the story itself is fiction, the book is based on facts about bats that are extremely educational.

Some bats use their ears and clicking sounds to navigate, and the bigger ones shoot lights out of their eyes! It's amazing how just because you're grown up you think you know everything. ;)
