An excellent bargain in one convenient hardback, Dora's Storytime Collection gathers seven Dora the Explorer stories based on the popular Nickelodeon TV episodes. In Little Star, Dora and her friend Boots the monkey need to cross the Troll Bridge, go past Tico's Tree, and get to Tall Mountain so they can take Little Star back home to the moon. In Dora's Backpack, Dora and Boots need to cross the Troll Bridge (again), cross Turtle River, and get to the library to return eight books. Meet Diego! introduces Dora's cousin Diego, who helps save Baby Jaguar. In Happy Birthday, Mami!, Dora needs to visit the Banana Grove, the Nutty Forest, and the Chocolate Tree to collect ingredients for her mother's special cake. Dora needs to brave the Dark Forest, Tall Mountain, and Stone Tower in Dora Saves the Prince, and then she must travel to Treasure Island in Dora's Treasure Hunt. In the final story, Good Night, Dora!, as Dora and Boots are going to Dora's house for a sleepover, they say good night to all the animals along the way. As with all Dora stories, Dora's Storytime Collection teaches problem solving, map reading, counting, and basic Spanish words. Older readers will appreciate the Spanish pronunciation and translation guide. (Ages 2 to 5) --David Horiuchi
