It’s morning in the Dark, Dark Wood and Little Bat can’t sleep. He doesn’t like the light. So, when Big Bat and Middle Bat tease him and call him a Scaredy Bat, there’s only one thing to do. Leave the old oak tree and prove them both wrong! Join Jonathan Meres to hear Little Bat’s story about letting go and conquering your fears. With bat-tastic illustrations from Anders Frang. Suitable for 3- 6 year-olds and Scaredy Bats of all ages, with songs stories and lots of fangtastic fun!
