Shakira Publishes Dora The Explorer Children's Book

| Filed under: InspirationShakira


LOVE her!!

Shakira published her first children's book, titled World School Day Adventure, as part of the Dora the Explorer series.

The story follows Dora and her companion Boots as they deliver school supplies to those in need.

Shakira says she wants "the children from all over the world to know that through knowledge and education, one can embark on great adventures." And added, "Dora is an inspiration for all children in the world. It was an honor working with Nickelodeon to write this story as education is a cause very close to my heart."

Paula Allen from Nickelodeon praised Shaki, saying, "Working with Shakira to create an educational and enriching story has been an extraordinary experience."

A percentage of the book's royalties will go to Shakira's Pies Descalzos Foundation, which is a non-profit organization dedicated to educating children.

So wonderful!

    Millions of College Educated & Dedicated Writers have been waiting decades to get their books published & acknowledged; and this Simon Cowel NOBODY gets to publish a book a feature it worldwide….

    What a SICK WORLD!

    I buy ABSOLUTELY NOTHING that Simon Cowell gets a cut of; NOTHING!

    Shakira supports illegal immigration. Shakira talked shit on Americans who oppose illegal immigration. Shakira talked shit on Arizona's SB 1070. Fuck Shakira up her fucking ass. I hope this stupid book makes zero money. Shakira deserves nothing less for supporting the criminal invasion of America by a bunch of smelly, uneducated, super-breeding foreigners.

    Re: Eldridge Cleaver – It's common knowledge Eldridge Cleaver is batshit crazy. This comment is no surprise.

    Re: AttFinch – I know right :-) .
    @ Eldridge Cleaver- You always speak negatively about illegal immigration, but yet you're on the site of a Cuban gay man. Why are you here if all you do is hate on people just like the creator of this site. Get this right- Shakira is NOT supporting illegal criminals as you may think, she's supporting the immigrants who have been here for many years trying to get citizenship and for those who actually want to work and improve their lives. You are just a RACIST!

    Re: Sweetness24 – They can go back to their own countries and work hard and change their country to be what they want it to be.

    "Shakira" the has been, has overstepped her welcome in this country, if she wants our money, she should abide and respect our immigration laws, if not she should consider shaking her money maker in some other country that likes her hideous singing and over the top opinions that mean absolutely nothing!

    I don't understand the first comment and the attempt to tie Shakira to Simon Cowell. Shakira has no connections to Simon Cowell. She's had a record contract with Sony Music since 1990…. 20 years. And has sold over 50 Million albums (to all the "nobody" and "has been" comments).

    Also, I think some people mistake supporting illegal immigrants as people (which is what she's doing) compared to supporting illegal immigration. She's just speaking from a human rights stance. Not such a mind-blowing idea.

    Although I do not agree with Shakira's political views and I think that Dora the Explorer is nothing more than a ploy to get children that are so young they barely know their own language to learn another one, I will say that this was pretty cool to hear. The subject of the book is about sharing with the less fortunate, and part of the proceeds go to charity. Even though I'm not a fan of her singing, Shakira seems like a pretty good person. The amount of money that she has donated over the years could put even Brad and Angelina to shame! And even though she has money, she has still taken college courses at UCLA

    I don't know how anyone can talk shit about this woman. She's talented, makes good music, down to earth, intelligent, and incredibly humble and gives back. She's great, I love her! :)

    this woman steals music from actual songwriters all over the world.
