What's the story?

DORA THE EXPLORER: WE DID IT! is a greatest hits album featuring all the well-known fan favorites from the endlessly successful Nick Jr. TV show, Dora the Explorer. From Dora's theme song to "Backpack" and the "Cleanup Song," the 15 tracks include every song your little Dora fans love, including 5 previously unreleased tracks. Latin singer Shakira guest sings on the warm-hearted, "Todos Juntos," a song about doing things together.

Is it any good?

If your preschooler loves Dora, then they will love this greatest hits album. It's like listening to the show, but with all the familiar favorites. As if you or your toddler hadn't already had enough with Dora on the TV, the Dora backpack, Dora pajamas, and the Dora dreamhouse, now your little explorers can listen to Dora everywhere they go. The new tracks showcase a slightly more mature sound that's still great for young fans, and feature a friendly song about togetherness sung by a fellow Latin spunkstress, Shakira.
