DVD Review: Dora's Royal Rescue

Is your preschooler a fan of Dora the Explorer?  If so, Dora the Explorer: Dora's Royal Rescue, is a DVD your going to want to add to your collection.  The DVD includes a double-length episode, “Dora’s Royal Rescue,” which features the voices of Andy Garcia as Don Quixote and Placido Domingo as Malambruno.  Also included, is the new-to-DVD episode, “Dora’s Knighthood Adventure,” which features the voice of Garcia as Don Quixote.

The plot:
The evil wizard Malambruno has captured Don Quixote, locked him away in Story Castle, and taken away his books! "Lady Knight" Dora and "Squire" Boots embark on a noble quest with Don Quixote's horse, Rocinante, to save the day. Preschoolers at home must help Dora out-dance a giant spider, overcome windmills, free caged lions, and learn how to tell their very own story, so Dora can rescue the books and a fellow knight, too!

Our review:

This has fast become one of our car travel favorites!  The boys love Dora & Boot's adventures and I love that they are defending their love of books and reading - which reinforces just how important reading is!  One of the other things that I like is that because this is a double length adventure, it moves beyond the 'typical' layout a little bit, making it just different enough to be more inviting to my parental ears!

As an added bonus, for a limited time, you can also print a fun Dora's Royal Rescue coloring pack to help your kids continue their love of Dora and reinforce the songs and stories they watched!
