Baby Bat loves his cave. He never wants to leave, which is why he ignores his mother's advice to practice flapping his wings like the other little bats.

When he accidently falls onto a messy ledge, he meets Pluribus Packrat who convinces him to go exploring inside the cave. His friend teaches him why bats are so important to the cave ecology.

This simple story does a good job of presenting bats as beneficial to the world. It is illustrated by Shennen Bersani.
