Dora The Explorer is ringing in the Holidays with her newest CD Dora's Christmas. This holly, jolly CD features Christmas Classics like "Deck the Halls", "Jingle Bells", and "Feliz Navidad". Also included on this snowy sensation are Bonus Tracks from Dora's Holiday Movie Dora's Christmas Carol Adventure. You'll want to make sure Swiper doesn't swipe this CD!
Along with fun tunes on this Sony Label album, kids will enjoy the great bonus content also on this disk. Bring fun wall papers, lyrics, and a Dora's Christmas Carol mini video to life using a computer CD drive.
This CD's insert features the usual song information, but also includes a festive Feliz Navidad/Christmas game board and pieces. For those of you not wanting to cut your insert please note there is a great printable version in the Bonus Content.
For those of you looking for the more traditional versions of well-known Christmas songs, you'll have to look elsewhere. When I first listened to the CD with my daughter, I was expecting the songs to be the original version but of course sung by Dora.
Dora incorporates fun friends from her show into her songs relating to the kids who follow her show. Dora's version of "Deck the Halls" mentions some of her best friends, "See Boots the Monkey jump before us. Fa-la-la-la-la, la-la-la-la Big Red Chicken joins the chorus. Fa-la-la-la-la, la-la-la-la."
As expected Dora also includes great learning opportunities by including Spanish into many of the songs on this album including "Here Comes Santa Claus."
"Here comes Santa Claus, Aquí viene Santa Claus, To visit me and my friends, Everyone’s waitin’, anticipatin’, As his sleigh comes round the bend. Bells are ringin', Boots is singin', All is merry and bright. So hang your stockings on Nochebuena, 'Cause Santa Claus comes tonight." I'd expect nothing less from this Hispanic sweetheart.
