Esmé has been completing a weekend project for school each week based on a science topic. She reads a book, writes a one-sentence report, and does a related activity or craft of her choice. On Monday, she gets to give a presentation to her Kindergarten class.

- Bats by Lily Wood (read by Esmé)
- Bats - Creatures of the Night by Joyce Milton (read by Mom)
- Bats! by Becky Wolff (an eBook – Amazon Prime freebie - read by Mom. Worth it just for the picture content.)
Free printable Bats handwriting paper for her sentence, “Did you know that most flying foxes do not use echolocation?”
