Based on the heartwarming book by Janell Cannon, Stellaluna is beautiful story told through puppetry about building friendship, learning differences, and embracing acceptance.
Baby bat Stellaluna’s life is flitting along right on schedule—until an owl attacks her mother one night, knocking the bewildered batlet out of her mother’s loving grasp. The tiny bat is lucky enough to land in a nest of baby birds, but her whole world has just turned upside down. Literally. Stellaluna’s adoptive bird mom accepts her into her nest, but only on the condition that Stellaluna will act like a bird, not a bat. Soon Stellaluna has learned to behave like a good bird should—she quits hanging by her feet and starts eating bugs. But when she finally has an opportunity to show her bird siblings what life as a bat is like, all of them are confounded. Anyone who has ever been asked to be someone they’re not will understand the conflicts—and the possibilities—Stellaluna faces.
