Shakira Writes Dora the Explorer Book
Posted on November 2, 2010
Shakira has written a new Dora the Explorer adventure, which is being released by Nickelodeon and Simon & Schuster. Shakira is also part of the story and her illustrated character is in the Dora the Explorer World School Day Adventure.
The book follows Dora, Boots and Shakira as they celebrate 'World School Day' with students from all corners of the earth. When some schools are missing supplies, it's up to Dora and Boots to make some very special deliveries.
Shakira says in a statement, "I'm a big fan of Dora because she inspires kids all over the world. It was such an honor working with Nickelodeon to write this story with its message of helping others and education, which is very close to my heart."
Dora the Explorer World School Day Adventure is available in English and Spanish version. A portion of the book's proceeds will benefit The Barefoot Foundation, Shakira's non-profit organization dedicated to childhood education.
