Elizabeth's Bat Story

Once upon a time there was a bat named Stellaluna. And one day she said, "Mommy, I am going to the mountains." Her mommy said, "Ok, but be careful." So she flew to the mountains. And she was so afraid. She saw a mountain lion. She said, "I wish mommy was here." A lion spied her. Stellaluna flew down to the lion's cave. And he was not happy. And Stellaluna's mommy was getting worried. So her mom flew to a jungle near the mountains. Stellaluna was hungry.She flew down too. And they met on a branch. Stellaluna was so happy and her mommy was happy too. They flew home and they lived happily ever after.

Stephanie's Bat Story

Stellaluna ate fruit. Stellaluna's mom was looking for food for them but instead an owl attacked them. Stellaluna fell in the forest. She fell on the branch. She fell again in the bird's nest. She heard birds chirping. The bird fed her bugs. Stellaluna opened her mouth. She did not like the taste. She did make a funny face. The birds got bigger and so did Stellaluna. One day Stellaluna said lets go out to fly. They flew for hours and hours. One said let's go home. Stellaluna kept flying but the birds went back home. Stellaluna dropped and hung by her thumbs. Another bat came on her branch and said you are upside down. I am not upside down. A lot of bats came and Stellaluna's mom was one of them. And Stellaluna's mom said I will not leave you.
