Benito the Bat Pollinates - Reviewed by Booklist
Meet Bonito, a friendly fruit bat! As part of the Pollinator Pals series (5 titles), Benito is thrilled to introduce himself and help blossoming readers hone their skills while learning about his world. He shows off the bat colony snoozing sweetly in his home cave, but when darkness falls, they leave their roost in search of nectar. Benito happily moves from flower to fruit and back again, carrying pollen on his fur and taking part in the important pollination process. The clear, concise story covers a lot of ground, even tackling more complicated concepts like echolocation. Colorful text boxes and vocabulary pointers make following the bat a breeze, while the bright illustrations are appealing and action packed. Instructive back matter includes a visual summation of pollination, further online reading, glossary, and index.
