Review:
It's Diego and crew "al rescate" (to the rescue!) in this underwater learning adventure for LeapFrog's Tag System designed to boost preschoolers' knowledge. The book introduces skills including basic reading (building of three letter words and recognizing compound words), Spanish words and phrases, and an introduction to sea life, with some size and direction terms (biggest, smallest, left, right, over, under) thrown in for good measure. The reader can navigate via entire book narration, page-by-page narration, word-by-word narration or by selecting individual games and activities, the majority of which appear at the end of the book rather than throughout of the story as in other Tag titles. In the latter half of the book, users complete one of three levels of increasing difficulty. While the idea of each level building on the next makes sense, each use requires starting at the easiest level which could cause more experienced users to lose interest.
