Dora the Explorer on NPR

Sure, we all know that Dora is the star of a great educational television program on Nickelodeon that kids just can't get enough of, but there is so much more to learn about her! A variety of consultants help make Dora the stereotype-smashing, Spanish-speaking, pan-Latina superstar she is. Listen to this story, Me Llamo Dora, from NPR's Morning Edition to find out how Dora, her name, her style, and more came to be.

If your library is having an event for El Día de los Niños, be sure to register with the Association of Library Services to Children (ALSC) database, and receive 200 complimentary bilingual brochures featuring Dora to promote Día and literacy!
