CriticasPreSchool-K–Once again, Dora has a mission and needs readers' help. She explains the goal and uses the materials at her disposal to accomplish it, with a little help from her friends. In La mochila de Dora, the heroine needs to find her way to the library before it closes so that she can return her books on time. In Estrellita, Dora and Boots must return Little Star to her home in the sky so that they can keep making their wishes every evening. Sneaky animals and trolls provide the element of tension but never scare readers. The Spanish used is easy to understand and the opportunities for learning grammar and new vocabulary are present without being overwhelming. Simplified artwork keeps attention focused on Dora and what she is looking for or needing at the time. Recommended for libraries and bookstores.
