Shakira Joins Dora the Explorer for a 'World School Day Adventure'

As if Shakira hasn't already accomplished a lot, now the Colombian pop star can add children's book author to her long list of triumphs!

Shaki teamed up with the folks behind Nickelodeon's hit TV show Dora the Exlorer to publish a new book in their series called World School Day Adventure. The book follows young Dora and her sidekick Boots as they rush to deliver school supplies to children around the globe in celebration of World School Day.

"Dora is an inspiration for all children in the world. It was an honor working with Nickelodeon to write this story as education is a cause very close to my heart," the singer said.

Shakira added that she wants "the children from all over the world to know that through knowledge and education one can embark on great adventures."

The book is available now from Simon & Schuster/Nickelodeon publishing for $16.99 and features a beautiful haard cover book with special art.

Mariela Rosario,

I'm a raging opinionista and I love to share my ramblings on everything from pop culture to food to stuff that makes me laugh & cry! I've worked in all types of media (TV, film, print) and was previously the online editor at Latina magazine before joining Mamás Latinas. On most nights you can find me working my way through my library of cookbooks or playing with my puppy Lola (my only child so far). I have a wonderful hubby who shares my passion for any and all kinds of travel. Together, we've formed a semi-professional wine drinking team.
