Three Word Sunday - Dora, Dora, Dora!!

So much for Elmo, he just doesn't bring the extra, extra, special sparkle to AA's eyes like Dora does now.
Elmo still naps and goes night-night with AA, but during the day he is left precariously perched on her desk or piled in with other ignored toys.
We (as in Mommy and AA - without the SAHP) went shopping to buy a book for the children's book swap (read over at Kim's blog: if you have ideas for swaps, Kim will organize!) and AA kept pointing and jabbering about the Dora book.
This is no ordinary book...... it comes with a gadget that has 20 recorded songs. Now we can enjoy the various Dora theme songs anytime of the day!

(don't tell AA, but I saw a similar book with Elmo on it...)

Inside the book, along with the story pictures, it has the symbol of the song that can be dialed in on the recorder and played along. Some are the standard nursery rhymes and a few are the Dora songs. A bit pricey, but how could I refuse!


What children's books have you enjoyed with your children?

Haven't enjoyed any books with my children yet but I love them and have a good size collection. I think my niece thinks Aunt Cora has a Library in the other room, she loves picking out a whole pile of books to read every time she is here.
Great one you have found for AA.
Have a good week.

Dora rocks in our house too. We have a similar book and player with The Wiggles and have a book with an attached cd player that's Sesame Street, Maisie loved them both.

Briana is ALL about Dora right now. And princesses of course. We have the Dora book with the CD player. And we are seeing Dora Live on August 23. I think Bri will freak out!

I think AA's eyes always have a very special sparkle.

Dora makes me nutty....it;s her voice.
Elmo is still King in our house.

I think we've been through just about all of the characters at this point, but a current fave in our house is Cars. My 3 year old will sit and "read" ANY book that has Lightening McQueen in it.

Happy 3WS to you too!
