Description This book app or bapp is a brand-new hybrid non-fiction book mixed with an ipad app.  It is broken into seven chapters starting with descriptions of bats and their habitats moving to the most amazing bats of the world.  The book app is nteractive in a number of ways to illustrate the concepts in the book like echolocation.
