Children's LiteratureThis large format board book combines two previously released books—Good Night, Dora! by Beinstein and Roper and Dora's Bedtime Wishes by Ricci and Hall. In the first story, Dora and her friends look for the evening star to make their wishes. We learn that Dora hopes for a sunny day; Boots wants a bunch of bananas; Tico would like some nuts; and Benny wants a new Teddy bear. The real question is, what does the little star wish for?—a good night's sleep for everyone. In Dora's Bedtime Wishes there are lots of Spanish words interspersed in the text and kids will learn the names of a variety of familiar animals from pollos (chickens), abejas (bees), ratones (mice) to ranas (frogs). As with all of the Dora books, there is usually a lesson or pleasant message to help kids learn the proper way to behave. Furthermore, young kids have an opportunity to learn a smattering of Spanish along with the English text. 2006, Simon Spotlight/Simon & Schuster, Ages 3 to 6.
