Perhaps I would have given this a better rating if I didn't find Dora completely annoying. And the copy of this that I have is a TAG reader so her voice came with it. Mercifully Leap Frog put comparatively few games in it, so it moved a little bit more quickly than it could have.

The only reason I'm giving it two stars instead of one is because it does have the alphabet and numbers in it, and I guess I shouldn't completely trash the book just because I loathe Dora.

You really probably shouldn't go

This book was ok, I didn't enjoy it well, I would in fact not recommend this book to anyone (F.Y.I.) butt eaters. Because who gives a crap what Dora says. hola, who gives a crap, everyone knows what it means it means go **** youself. Ever thought of that creepers.
Dora can just go and eat MY BANANNA BEEF!.....AND MY BOOB!

Hola - oy what can I say Eve is a Dora fan. Btwn Boot and Tico and Swiper and dont forge the Map (I'm the map, I'm the map ... ) ... Eve loves Dora ! I'd rather go jogging than read these books (not doing too good on the exercise front !) ... but not only do I read them I buy them ... for my little Schnooks....

Familiar character who helps students with their English and Spanish skills. Dora helps her teacher carry all of the school supplies to school when she gets a flat tire. Go on the adventure with Dora to get her and the teacher to school in order to prepare for the children.
ugh, Dora books are never great, but this book is ridiculous.
Dora's teacher gets a flat tire on her bike on her way to school, so Dora helps her out by catching a bus, then riding a train, then riding a condor through the forest to get to school.

Uh, yeah. Right

When will there be a day when I do not have to read this book to my 2 year old Dora fan? Can't say I am a huge fan of this book (I find it really quite tedious and the illustrations leave me cold) but my 2 year old loves, loves, loves this book. So what do I know!?

If my daughter choose another Dora book from the library, I might have to gouge my eyes out. And this was one of the better ones. Oh, but does she like them, and they are "educational," if your goals are modest (i.e. teaching random Spanish words and counting to ten).

I really like this book. It's teaches Spanish, numbers, and alphabet. I love the fact that it has an activity for the kids to do. This weekend I am going to do the activity with my kids too. I can't wait.

Typical Dora easy reader...this one includes pages with alphabet and numbers 1-10 (forwards and backwards). Kids enjoy these titles with spanish phrases and tone of the Dora cartoon.

They mad this book off one of the episodes. They put in a new teacher and added Diego and yeah... This is the worst of the Dora books that I've had to read to my brothers.

Drives me crazy when children's books depict characters riding bikes without helmets!

But the Number Mountain and Letter Town were cool.

Brian liked that Dora helped Maestra Beatriz get to school. He especially liked the blue train, "azul."
