My Favorite Children's Show

This guest post was written by Alex Manduvo.
There are all different kinds of children's shows on the television these days, so it's hard to pick a favorite. But if I had to choose, I would say Dora the Explorer. I have six younger siblings and every morning, I watch this show with them. It is probably one of the most creative shows I have ever seen. Dora mixes Spanish and English together in such a unique way that I see my siblings knowing and understanding the words she speaks. I am learning Spanish myself and I think they are learning faster than I am.
This show also keeps children interested in topics they talk about and get the kids to interact with the characters on television. When Dora asks a question, she waits for the children to respond, and then responds herself as if she really heard their response. It's pretty incredible. Without knowing it, the children who watch her show are learning life long lessons and developing the skills to make their own decisions. That's exactly the kind of children's show that children in this world should be watching.
Every morning, I know that I am going to enjoy watching Dora the Explorer with my younger brothers and sisters on Dallas satellite tv because I enjoy watching them learn and grow as individuals. It is truly a magical experience.
