Stellaluna: Accepting Differences in People

Stellaluna is not just about a baby bat who falls from the sky. She is author Janell Cannon's vehicle to illustrate a valuable social lesson for youngsters. When Stellaluna lands in a nest of baby birds, both birds and bat experience and share how each lives differently. Before Stellaluna is reunited with her mother, she learns one of the most valuable lessons of our times: acceptance of others who are different from us.
This social lesson is camouflaged with colorful pages and appealing graphics. At the back of the book are facts about bats, their habits and habitats, adding real science to the reading experience.
A final notation is due in regards to this book. Because the entire presentation deals with animal life, the story is easily adaptable to any culture. Few children's books can claim such universal comprehension--a fact which merely caps Cannon's accomplishment in writing this outstanding story.
