Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature
Fans of the television show, Dora the Explorer, will recognize the pattern here. Dora wants to make a special cake for Mother's Day. She must gather the ingredients from the banana grove, the nutty forest and the chocolate tree, and consults the map as to their locations. She speaks directly to the reader as she moves along, introducing her friends as she goes. Readers can learn a few Spanish words including learning to count to six. They can also follow Dora's cue when she says, "Say 'Swiper, no swiping!'" which is a familiar line to the television followers who will see Swiper the fox hiding in the bushes. Computer generated graphics present what appear to be stills from the television cartoon. The interactive approach will engage the preschool set. This is based on the TV series and works better as a cartoon show. 2003, Simon Spotlight/ Nick Jr,
