A lot or a little?
The parents' guide to what's in this music.
What parents need to know
Parents need to know that this bilingual 3-CD set is broken into distinct categories -- music from the show, a dance album, and Dora's World Adventure, which takes the plucky heroine and her monkey sidekick Boots to Africa and the Australian Outback. If your kids are fans of the show they'll love this set, but it may grate on adult ears. Dora's high-pitched voice and the relentlessly upbeat music can make even parents long for a little naptime lullaby.
Is it any good?
Preschoolers will no doubt enjoy this collection of tunes from television's beloved explorer, but most parents will hit their limit of Dora's squeaky high-pitched voice just a few songs into the sprawling 3-CD set. For kids though, especially fans of the show, the robust collection of songs will provide hours of upbeat entertainment.
