Dora counts in both English and Spanish, colors need to be identified, learning and comprehending is emphasized, and even the instructions are read so new readers can read along and sound out words.
Best For a Certain Age
Quite possibly the biggest flaw with this game is it's accessibility. This game could easily be too simple for older players, limiting its audience. It is designed for younger players so there is no real strategy or challenge. Even when you set the difficulty to the hardest setting, if you are an older speller you will find this game to be incredibly easy.
