Great story

Easy to read and very active. My daughter enjoyed the book. She seems to enjoy the Dora the Explorer series. A must read.

Dora the Explorer. Should I make a review? Hmm.. Why not? It's still a book. :)

One might ask, why the heck did I read Dora? The answer is that I'm just curious on what's written inside the book. AND since I saw Mitch's status and saw DORA in his read list, I look for the book. :D

The whole time I'm reading this book I was laughing. 'Cause I could totally imagine Dora and Boots having fun at the adventure. And it's funny because the book also asks you questions and asks you to do things for Dora a

The thing I can't stand about these Dora books are the random, asinine plots. To rescue the cow, we need to stand on our head three times and shout two Spanish words and then drink a raspberry milkshake! I exaggerate, but not by much. It makes me long desperately for the Vollander classic short stories (such as The Little Red Hen, Chicken Little, Three Little Bears, etc.) The unfortunate thing is that BOTH my male toddler and my female preschooler love these Dora books, and so I read on and on. ...more

Another in the Dora series... Our little ones just love Dora and her friends and I'll tolerate it for their sake. This one encourages the little ones to do some dancing too, which is pretty fun for them. Corny story, but our girls liked it. They love all of their Dora the Explorer books.

The plot is a little out there, but I like the explicitness of the actions the reader needs to do to help Dora and Boots - Mini-Me giggled her way through them.

Much better in tv format, I'm sure. This has a few cute moments, but it's not very compelling to read. For me, at least.

Dora's not really my favorite. But Little Miss really enjoys this book. Geared toward a very young audience with simple ideas and plot.

The final dance was fun.
