“Dora the Explorer:  Dora Loves Boots” is a fun release for children and also parents who want to find DVD’s that can be educational for children. My young son literally grew up in his young toddler years watching Dora and through this series, it was very helpful in helping him develop skills on decision making and also learning a little Spanish. And I’m a true believer that these educational children’s shows is one of the reasons why he is doing so well in school.

I can easily remember watching him and seeing him really get into the series and taking part in the challenges.

Where most of the “Dora the Explorer” TV shows have been instrumental in teaching children Spanish and counting as well as teamwork, the same can be said about this latest DVD. And these four episodes focus on Dora’s friendship with Boots and how she helps her good friend out.

As for special features, unfortunately, this DVD doesn’t have any but you do get a free paid code that allows Dora to call your child.

Overall, “Dora the Explorer:  Dora Loves Boots” is great for parents or relatives looking for a DVD release for younger children. It’s a safe, educational and your kids will love it!
