Last week Dora the Explorer celebrated her 10th birthday—10 years of taking kids along with her on her many adventures! Now Dora and her friends will get the little ones dabbling in the kitchen and eating a balanced diet with her latest endeavor, Dora & Diego Let’s Cook (Wiley Spiral-Bound Hardcover, $17) hitting stores Monday, August 23.
The cookbook from Nickelodeon has 50 simple, fun and delicioso recipes such as Dora’s Empanadas and Fish in the Pond Tortilla Soup. There are a range of Latin themed dishes throughout the entire book that both parents and children will enjoy creating.
Some of the books other great features include: "Kids Help" icons indicating steps in every recipe where kids can help out with tasks like washing fruit or mixing batter, English and Spanish vocabulary, and a helpful introduction to cooking with preschoolers that includes kitchen safety and age-appropriate techniques to get them involved.
