Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Marilyn Courtot
While Halloween is the setting, the book is really an opportunity to learn more about bats and especially fruit bats. Diego is dressed as a bat and like his friend Freddie the fruit bat they both enjoy the night. Diego and his cousin Alicia have been preparing for a big Halloween party, but they are waiting for the llamas to bring the treats for trick-or-treating. Click the camera tells Diego that the llamas are in trouble. Diego and Freddie set out on an adventure to fix the bridge and get the llamas to the party. Throughout the book, readers are asked questions to get them involved and thinking about the story. Diego and Freddie must go through a maze, and it is an opportunity to explain how bats use echolocation to navigate. Bats can also see in the night better than humans so Freddie is able to find Baby Jaguar's hat. As with other "Go Diego Go!" stories this one has a happy ending. There is additional information about fruit bats, kids learn a few Spanish words and enjoy the rescue mission. The only issue for this reviewer was the difficulty reading the black print on a dark background. The pages where there was a reverse print were much easier to read. It will be even more difficult for kids learning to read. Reviewer: Marilyn Courtot
