I brought a baby bat to school today to show my friends in Room 18 and my Teacher Ms. O Hare. My Daddy caught him. We placed him in an old plastic container with holes in it so that he could breathe. I brought him around the school to show him to the teachers and students. Some people thought he was cool and cute, others thought he was freaky. After school I let him go free.
