Story Book Sunday - Stellaluna

I have been absent from posting the last few weeks - the flu has been sweeping through everyone I know here down under.
But here is my Story Book Sunday post for this week. 

This is a another one of my go to books - I loved hearing it read by a lovely librarian I used to work with and now the reaction of kids when they hear it, is priceless. 

Stellaluna is written by 
Stellaluna is the tender story of a lost young bat who finally finds her way safely home to her mother and friends.
In this story, a baby bat separated from her mother is raised by a mother bird, on the condition that she acts as birds do: sleep at night, don't hang upside down, and eat worms and insects. Though she doesn't like behaving in this way, Stellaluna agrees and tries to prove she fits in with the birds.
Enjoy this online version read by Pamela Reed. 

I have chosen Stellaluna for the this week.
