It's not like Dora can simply go to the beach, she has to call on the map to find out how to get there, and then she has to get through obstacles along the way. I guess that's what appeals to the kids, after all.
In this adventure we have to go over Flying Fish bridge (where we have to count the fish and name their colors in both English anB Spanish) and then we have to go through the maze of the Silvery Sand Dunes. My four-year-old daughter is into mazes, so she really likes that part.
But what bothers me most about the book is that Boots learns to swim all in one day's lessons. I mean, of course it's condensed for effect in the book, but the reality, as any kid who's tried it knows, is that swimming is a lot harder than it looks and it takes a long time to swim independently at all, let alone to be good at it. Marianna may be a great teacher (being a mermaid and all), but I don't think they should have had Boots learn to swim completely. Maybe suggest that he would still need lots of practice. I can see kids getting rather bummed if they don't learn to swim all in one day.
But all-in-all a typical Dora adventure. If your child is into Dora, s/he'll like this one.
