Children's LiteratureThe well-loved television character Dora goes from TV screen to the printed page in this collection of stories. Dora teaches the young about manners, school, fairy-tales, smiles, a big sister, a chilly day, and a pirate adventure. Included in the prose are Spanish words easily grasped by the listener. "Map says that to get to the Chocolate Tree we have to go over the Troll Bridge and through the Nutty Forest. Vamonos! Let's go!" says Dora. Each story is simply told but intriguing for the age level. What kid does not love chocolate, fairy tale characters, dragons, cute creatures, and an ocean adventure? The illustrations are true to the series, with each scene filled with colorful drawings. The hardback book is easily held by small hands. The back cover has a "Say it in Spanish" guide, highlighting the words introduced throughout the book. For example, hola = hello and is pronounced "Oh-lah." 2004, Simon Spotlight/Simon & Scuster, Ages 3 to 7.
