    Get this from a library! The bat-poet. [Randall Jarrell; Maurice Sendak; Juvenile Collection (Library of Congress)] -- A bat who can't sleep days makes up poems about the woodland creatures he now perceives for the first time.   The most important lesson f brain scans | Daniel Amen | TEDxOrangeCoast - Duration: TEDx Talks Recommended for you.

    Poet/critic Jarrell has made a fable with a message that is likely to flap right over the heads of its intended audience. His bat awakens in daylight to see and hear the things that his fellow bats sleep through. He discovers a talent for making ""word portraits"" and the storyline consists of his difficulties in finding intelligent, appreciative listeners.   The Bat-Poet is known as one of Randall Jarrell’s children’s books, but to call it a children’s book may be missing the point. This gentle portrait, beautifully illustrated by Maurice Sendak, explores the process and impetus for creating poetry as well as the life of the artist.

    The Bat-Poet is the story of how he tried to make the other bats see the world his way. With illustrations by Maurice Sendak, The Bat-Poet -a New York Times Best Illustrated Children's Book selection-is a collection of the bat's own poems and the bat's own world: the owl who almost eats him; the mockingbird whose irritable genius almost. The Bat Poet is a lively and imaginative children's story. Jarrell uses poetry and criticism to make the story a tool, in which a young person interested in poetry can use. By giving the characters anthropomorphic qualities and themes, Jarrell gives meaning to his story. The Bat Poet gives the central characters depth and reality.
