I am just here with my niece trying to instill the values of friendship & caring, as well as being happy & sharing. My niece likes "Dora The Exporer" videos b/c Dora teaches, English, L'Espanol, & other languages to her viewers. Plus, she has lots of human & animal friends to play with, including Boots the Monkey. She talks about responsibility & making sure that students & kids in all parts of the world have a decent chance at a quality education. Ie: adventures include giving out school supplies, building materials to build schools that have been destroyed, etc. The overriding theme being that Dora is trying to get kids of all races, coloors, & creeds to have an equal chance at a good life & a strong beginning educational foundation.
Plus, my niece & I can play word recognition & letter games to ensure she keeps up cognitively over the summer. I am even trying her first language of Chinese. It really is quite fun.
