Dora the Explorer: Dora Rocks DVD Review and Giveaway! - CLOSED!

**This is a Sponsored Post.  I was given the product in exchange for this review. 

Earlier this month Nickelodeon released a brand new DVD sure to delight all Dora the Explorer fans entitled: Dora the Explorer: Dora Rocks!  I don't know about your kids, but every child I've ever met loves Dora the Explorer!  As a mom I love the program too since it teaches my kids so many things, such as counting, Spanish, colors, the alphabet and so much more!  Kids love it because they get to interact with the program when Dora asks them which way to go or to help with the problem her and Boots currently have.  Well, this DVD is no exception.  Three ROCKIN' episodes are included in this great DVD including the title episode: Dora Rocks!  In this episode Benny the Bull forgets to send out the invitations to his party.  Dora and Boots must deliver their microphone to the barn so that they can call all of the guests to the party.  Dora gets to wear a special pop-star like outfit and sings a special song with all of her friends.  The kids all love this DVD and ask to watch it frequently!  I don't mind letting them watch Dora because I know they are learning and having fun at the same time!  Hurry out and pick up your copy of Dora Rocks! today!

In every episode, Dora and Boots invite the audience to participate in an exciting adventure, where each step of their journey consists of a problem or puzzle that Dora and the audience must think their way through in order to solve the next problem.  Dora is proudly bilingual and uses her knowledge of English and Spanish to communicate with her friends, overcome obstacles and reach her goals.  In each episode, Dora teaches Spanish words or phrases to the viewers and then asks them to use it to solve a problem and forge ahead.  Ultimately, Dora and her best friend, Boots, triumph, and the story always ends with a “We Did It!” anthem.
