Dora, Dora, Dora the Explorer! These lyrics stick in my head like glue. Dora is one of Adeline’s favorite shows. How could a child not like the catchy theme song? Adeline was very excited that we got the chance to review the brand new Dora the Explorer: Dora’s Ballet Adventures a compilation containing four of Dora’s dancing episodes. Ballet and Dora? Even better. Adeline loves dressing up as a ballerina! We popped in the DVD once we got Adeline’s tutu and slippers on. She watched as Dora and Boots danced and sang their way through 4 brand new adventures. As in every episode of Dora audience participation is encouraged throughout each episode and Adeline happily helps out! Adeline’s favorite of the four was the ballet adventure episode. She thought it was pretty funny that the truck delivered scuba flippers instead of ballet slippers! The horror! She loved helping Boots and Dora figure out how to get the slippers before the start of Dora’s recital. Spoiler Alert: Dora finds her ballet slippers which leads to yet another catchy song …”We did it, We did it!” I love Dora for the reason that it requires participation and gets kids thinking. Adeline even gets exposure to another language. I love that!
