The book tells the story about a bat and the book also has info about bats with illustrations that show bats flying, hanging, and walking. It also talks about the different kinds of bats in the world.
- An Eclectic Homeschool Online review says, "This is a fabulous read along. Kids will astonish adults with their knowledge of bats after reading Bat Loves the Night".
- A Kirkus Reviews review says, "This is useful as a very first introduction to bats, but readers will need to go farther to answer some questions (like what kinds of bats do eat "fruit, fish, frogs, even blood!"). And while there is an index of 15 terms, there is no bibliography. Nevertheless, this is a beautifully designed and thoughtfully executed informational storybook".
