words are sweet and simple but beautiful, and the illustrations closer to illuminations, really are complex and atmospheric, but again, simple at the same time.The story is lovely, and really there are so many ways to relate to it It actually struck me as a designer, and I saw a lot of similarities to the client designer relationships in the way the little bat interacted with the subjects of his poetry.Lovely little book All you mamas must get it for your children Or,if you re just a grownup like me, get it for yourselves Had I been aware of this book as a child, I think I would have carried it around like a teddy bear, hugging it and nibbling on the corners I love the matter of fact, believable dialogue between the creatures There s nothing cutesy or after school specially about the animals They just have these great discussions about life and art that include the kind of yummy tidbits about animal behavior that I ve always geeked out to Maurice Sendak s black and white illustrations are magical Even the sm Had I been aware of this book as a child, I think I would have carried it around like a teddy bear, hugging it and nibbling on the corners I love the matter of fact, believable dialogue between the creatures There s nothing cutesy or after school specially about the animals They just have these great discussions about life and art that include the kind of yummy tidbits about animal behavior that I ve always geeked out to Maurice Sendak s black and white illustrations are magical Even the small drawings of bats in some of page corners are remarkably expressive and alive Spot on portrait of the effort of writing poetry, including even the worry of its uselessness or, at least, its lack of audience The Bat Poet s poems come in at the moment you need them to, and surprise you with which rules they follow and which they don t Sweet Poet Randall Jarrell s story of one small, extraordinary bat who sees the world differently from the other bats Besides being a perfect vehicle for a poet to share their gift with children, The Bat Poet also ends up being a paean to bats in general Our furry brown hero begins staying awake during the day when all the other bats sleep , noticing other animals First, the mockingbird, then the chipmunk, both of whom are the subject of poems by the bat, who was initially inspired by the singing Poet Randall Jarrell s story of one small, extraordinary bat who sees the world differently from the other bats Besides being a perfect vehicle for a poet to share their gift with children, The Bat Poet also ends up being a paean to bats in general Our furry brown hero begins staying awake during the day when all the other bats sleep , noticing other animals First, the mockingbird, then the chipmunk, both of whom are the subject of poems by the bat, who was initially inspired by the singing of the mockingbird Of course, once convinced to listen, both the mockingbird and the chipmunk like hearing the poems about themselves, as we are all prone to greedily enjoy observations of ourselves.The poems are lovely the story itself is written in the spare style common to poets, so every word has a place, and the book is quite short I think it could easily be read and even savored in half an hour, even though it s not a picture book Maurice Sendak s illustrations are lovely I was particularly taken by a two page spread of a peaceable kingdom sort of picture late in the book.I may have read this when I was young, because I loved The Animal Family so much when I was a child, but I didn t really remember it I m looking forward to re reading The Animal Family, and, for that matter, Jarrell s other two children s books, Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs A Tale From the Brothers Grimm, and The Gingerbread Rabbit, which, come to think of it, I m sure I have read, maybethan once, but perhaps I didn t realize it was written by Jarrell since I wasfocused on Garth Williams s illustrations And then also there s a volume called Randall Jarrell s Book of Stories, aka The Anchor Book of Stories, the description of which begins Storytelling as a fundamental human impulse, one that announces itself at the moment, hidden in infancy, that dreams begin this is what the poet and critic Randall Jarrell set out to illuminate in this extraordinary book Beautiful little book belonging to my father and read to me as a youngster I had not seen it since I was a little thing, yet Sendak s gorgeous finely detailed pen and ink illustrations I had never forgotten They left an indelible impression on me. My rating 4.5 starsWhat a refreshing break from these trying political times A sweet little bat who likes to wake up during the day gasp trying to find his way in the world by writing poetry about his fellow critters owls, chipmunks and magpies included Heart warming with a hint of melancholy set against the back drop of the changing of the seasons and finding your place in the world Animal lovers, this book will find its way into your heart. The little brown bat stays awake when the other bats sleep, and when the weather cools and they move to the barn he stays on the porch, listening to the mockingbird and wishing he could sing, too He can t carry a tune, but he finds he can describe the world around him with words Does that make him poet And will anyone else want to hear his poems What a beautiful book I will be returning to thisthan once, both by myself and with my children.
