During the various highly didactic episodes, Dora and Boots, a little monkey with red boots, will entertain children, with games, songs and surprises that will lead them to discover the magic of words, mathematics, music and science. During their adventurous journey, they will have to overcome numerous obstacles, with the help of Dora's precious magical backpack and an animated map.

The cartoon is mainly aimed at preschoolers, who will be stimulated to learn thanks to the brightly colored drawings and catchy music.

Dora and Diego in "Rescue Mission"
From 25 to 31 October 2010 on Nick Junior

A week of special programming arrives on Nick JR in October with a series of episodes that will see Dora the explorer and her cousin Diego together in many fun adventures! Not everyone in fact knows that Dora has a cousin!
His name is Diego, he is 8 years old and he too is a courageous “rescuer of animals in danger”. In fact, in each episode Diego explores the rainforest and runs to the aid of every baby animal in difficulty. Watching the series “Vai Diego” you also learn many words in English; the animal that must be saved is studied in its characteristics: the direction, the color, the way of moving, the environment where it lives, and at the end of each episode you will see a photograph of it!
During Nick Jr.'s special week entitled Dora and Diego in "Rescue Mission" you will be able to see over twenty episodes in addition to the special "Dora Giramondo" in which our two friends will be involved in saving many trapped animals, but to save them all they will need as always of your help!
Furthermore, Diego's character often turns to the viewer, asking what is the best thing to do, showing the possible options; in this way an interactive involvement is also created, which stimulates children's curiosity for animals and nature. All interspersed with pleasant songs in Italian. In this third season Diego, helped by the puppy Baby Giaguaro and his other friends, will be called to save a gorilla, a flying squirrel, a camel that lives in Egypt and even a polar bear!
