Boots and Dora go on an adventure to the beach and then Boots learns to swim with the help of a mermaid. Typical Dora the Explorer story (that I'm glad our girls liked, and I like even more that they are growing too old for!) Some spanish words are included and I liked the swimming lesson illustration. It was much too abbreviated and I don't like that Boots learned to swim in mere minutes, but hey, who am I to say how long it takes a monkey to learn to swim when a mermaid is teaching him!?!
Dora invites Boots to go to the ocean swimming with her. Boots doesn't know how to swim, so a mermaid is going to help him learn. Typical Dora story with some Spanish words included. My boys enjoyed the story but then again, they are taking swimming lessons starting next week, so I think that increased their excitement about it!
