Earphones Award Winner

by Brian Lies | Read by Chris Sorensen

What do bats do at the beach? The same thing you and I do! Join the bats for a wonderful beach day—well, actually, night. Chris Sorensen's reading captures the joy of the beach, where bat friends and family gather in the moonlight for swimming, surfing, sandcastle building, games, and a picnic. Sorensen's clear voice has a resonance that helps to depict these magical scenes. His cadence and pacing allow the listener to enjoy the story's rhyme scheme. As the bats move from one activity to another, he pauses slightly to let the listener follow. Excellent narration enhances this wonderful story, making it an easy choice for a listening library.
