Feliz Cumpleaños Dora!


That's right, our mainstream Latina is turning 10 years old! And according to Latina Magazine, "From New York to New Mexico, cities all across the country are getting ready to celebrate the 10th anniversary of Dora the Explorer in style! More than 30 cities are observing Dora the Explorer day on August 14th to acknowledge the positive impact the Nickelodeon heroine has had on children over the last decade."

To be honest I've never watched the show but I know how important it is to children. As if celebrating someone's b-day wasn't enough, Nick Jr. has launched an educational campaign! Beyond the Backpack is a new pro-social initiative from Nickelodeon's Dora the Explorer that champions overall school readiness for preschoolers on their biggest adventure yet--going to school. Education is very important to my family, in fact in should be for every family. The Latino high school drop out rate is enormous so touching kids at an early age is a big thumbs up for Nick Jr.

Feliz Cumpleaños Dora!
