Dora, Boots, and Diego have to rescue the animals Swiper scared away, so they can get to the big Three Kings Day party at Dora's house.
To preschoolers, Dora, Boots, and Diego are like family, making them the perfect ones to celebrate any holidays with! Children will be intrigued by the idea of Three Kings Day--which you'll probably have to explain to them--and just may want to come up with a celebration of their own!
Because there are so many animals in this story, it may appeal even to younger babies who won't understand the fuss about Three Kings Day. Two-year-olds will enthusiastically guess which animal is silhouetted behind a tent, based on clues like "it's a one-humped mammal." Don't be surprised to hear lots of shouting of answers!
Seeing cousins Dora and Diego together will be a real treat for preschoolers, who will enjoy combining both shows and using their explorer skills to rescue animals. They'll enjoy learning and repeating the pattern of lights--green, green, blue, blue, red--to attract the camel, and will be interested to learn that in Mexico, people put straw in their shoes for the animals. Because preschoolers love surprises, they'll be excited to see what's hidden in a piece of a cake--and who gets it!
Most kids in this age group have outgrown Dora's adventures but those on the younger side may still want to learn about Three Kings Day and the custom of giving out toys, candy, and cake. They may also find it funny when the cake goes flying, and Dora asks them to yell out, "Rapido!" to go faster and faster to get it back.
