Dora and Boots sing and dance their way through three musical episodes of the popular animated children's TV show.
Seven-year-old Dora literally helps children navigate through life, teaching them important skills like counting, matching, and following directions. And she does this in two languages, sprinkling Spanish words and phrases throughout, for young viewers to repeat and incorporate into their own vocabulary. Preschoolers are likely to become so enamored with the microphone Dora uses in the title episode, that they just may start carrying around their own make-believe one! After helping Dora and Boots solve problems, don't be surprised to hear them proudly--and loudly!--announcing into it, in signature Dora style, "I did it!"
Babies who aren't verbal yet won't be able to repeat the English or the Spanish words, but they may still feel comforted by the warmth that emanates from Dora and Boots and their friends.Two-year-olds will be on their feet, interacting with the characters and laughing as they learn to dance the conga and clap super fast to a salsa beat!
Dora is so empowering for preschoolers, who feel personally invested when she and Boots ultimately reach their goal. In these episodes, they'll eagerly accompany Little Map and Baby Bongo on their very first adventures, and they'll see that it's okay to make mistakes--and learn from them. They'll love all the music and singing and dancing, and may now think of Dora, in her special pop-star outfit, as the real Latina American Idol!
Most kids in this age group have probably outgrown Dora, but those on the younger end may still enjoy discovering picking up new words in Spanish.
