I don’t know of any preschooler who is not totally into Dora the Explorer, do you? And, if you’re raising bilingual children, she’s the perfect character to support you along the way because, let’s face it, preschoolers think she is cool!

My daughter has the lunchbox and the plastic cups and the coloring books and the movies, of course. So, if your niños are anything like mine, they’ll be happy to know there’s a new Dora the Explorer prime time special premiering this weekend on Nickelodeon. “Dora Saves the Crystal Kingdom” airs Sunday, November 1, at 8 p.m. (ET/PT).

In this episode, Dora continues her magical storybook adventure – which started last fall with “Dora Saves the Snow Princess” – by coming to the rescue when a greedy king steals the crystals that give color to the kingdom. In “Dora Saves the Crystal Kingdom,” Dora and Boots have to help their new friend Allie turn her colorless kingdom into a bright wonderland before it’s too late.

Unfortunately, this special episode of the insanely popular Dora the Explorer TV show, does not have a Spanish language track option which, as you probably know by now, we highly recommend you use if you’re raising bilingual kids. However, some Spanish is better than none at all and you should use this viewing opportunity to explore some new vocabulary with your little ones.

“Dora Saves the Crystal Kingdom” is currently available in DVD nationwide. You can get your copy via La Tiendita. Or, you can enter to win one below…
