Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature
This board book, based off the popular "Dora the Explorer" television show, is geared toward English-speaking children. Though English and Spanish are presented simultaneously, only the Spanish has an accompanying pronunciation guide. While this feature makes the book more accessible to English speakers, it does little to help the Spanish-speaking child who is left without similar resources. It should also be noted that the pronunciation guide is a decent approximation of the Spanish language. It is always difficult to capture a rolled r, but barring that fault, the syllabic divisions and stresses are well marked. The opposites are basic, and easily comprehensible to young audiences. The book's primary appeal lies in its being a part of the Dora product line. Because many children love the television show, they will love to look at a book featuring one of their favorite characters. In this way, children may learn to read with a character that encourages them. 2002, Simon Spotlight, Ages 2 to 5.
