PreS-Gr 2–A young girl’s imagination turns her experience with a new babysitter into something fun and spooky in this bilingual picture book. Halloween approaches, and a young girl gives advice to readers on what to look out for if they’re spending a night with a new babysitter. She might arrive with a spooky dress and sombrero, she might cackle and throw you in her bubbling cauldron. As the little girl runs from the witch, readers will enjoy seeing the various activities they both enjoy and the way the little girl’s imagination transforms them, from playing outside to taking a bath, to having a late night snack. As the night comes to an end, the little girl has enjoyed herself tremendously. The fun illustrations are a mix of spooky Halloween colors and bright vibrant shades, and the lyrical text with Spanish words and phrases sprinkled throughout make this a perfect choice for all occasions.
VERDICT A fun addition to picture book collections for children, and a perfect choice for October reads.
