 A Boy Called Bat features, Bixby Alexander Tam (Bat for short), an autistic boy. Author Elana K. Arnold presents Bat’s neurodiversity through his actions and, set within the context of an engaging and tender plot.

 The focus on inclusive educational practices and Universal Design for Learning (UDL) make A Boy Called Bat a welcome addition to the Eureka! LIbrbay.
