Dora the Explorer and Thalía are making a splash

We are fans of Dora The Explorer here on Spanglish Baby, and have shared Dora’s story with you. Dora gets our little ones excited about being bilingual, and not just our Spanish speaking kids, but she’s definitely proven that kids everywhere, bilingual or not, can relate to her and enjoy learning about a different culture and language. It’s no wonder Dora is the most watched preschool program on TV!


This Friday, March 16, Nickelodeon is inviting us to Dora and Boot’s exciting aquatic adventure. The half hour special, “Dora’s Rescue in Mermaid Kingdom” airs at 10am (ET/PT) and will feature Thalia! Yes, the international superstar Thalia will be voicing a mermaid who is trying to reconnect with her lost daughter. And, you guessed it, there will be plenty of singing involved!

Check out this video of Thalia and Dora singing en español the song Canta, Canta, Canta and then scroll down for a collection of online Dora games, activities, printables, podcasts and apps!
