Mr. Bat Wants a Hat

  • Interest Level: Preschool - Grade 1
  • Reading Level: Grade 2

“Oh. A sad baby. She likes hats too,” said a small part of Mr. Bat. “Too bad!” said the rest of him, dancing in his brand-new hat.

Mr. Bat is missing something. Something important. A HAT! He wants a HAT! Before long, he finds the perfect hat. It has pretty pink roses and lots of GLITTER. But this hat belongs to someone else . . . which doesn’t bother him AT ALL, actually. Or does it?

This hilarious and heart-warming story encourages children to learn to think about others, empathy, and doing the right thing. The brightly colored illustrations combine with lively text to create a vibrant and thought-provoking bedtime story.
