KIRKUS REVIEW

“Wow! ¡Qué vacaciones!” Meeting many friends along the way, Dora joins Diego, Baby Jaguar and others from the show in an outing to the Rainforest Campground.

With customary effervescence, Dora (optionally) narrates the text that appears a line or two at a time beneath each of the eight cartoon scenes. She also repeatedly urges viewers to tilt the tablet for 3D effects, touch figures to set off quick animations or zooms and drag three stickers per scene to matching pulsing silhouettes. Pages are a little slow to load, but the narration and the nicely varied array of special effects work smoothly, and successive encounters with a large cast of familiar (to fans, at least) vacation-bound characters make each stage of the trip a memorable one. There's nothing new about it, but for children who love the characters from the TV show, it will be both nicely familiar and mildly exciting. (Adults may wish to stifle Dora after a reading or two, though.)

Engaging enough even for the car-seat crowd. (iPad storybook app. 3-6)
