Places in book[]

  1. Banana Grove
  2. Nutty Forest
  3. Chocolate Tree

Note: Just like in the episode.


  • This book was released exactly 1 year after The Golden Explorers premiered and Dora's Backpack and Little Star were released.
  • This book is based on the episode El Día De Las Madres.
  • When issued as part of Dora's Storytime Collection, the book was retitled "Happy Birthday, Mami!".
  • There are a few differences between the book and actual episode:
    • In the book, Dora traveled alone to get the cake ingredients; in the episode, Boots went with her.
    • Unlike the book, the Banana Grove is just referred to as "the Bananas".
    • Swiper does not swipe Benny's cowbell for his grandma.
    • In the book, Dora needed three bananas for the cake; in the episode, there were ten. However, there were still six nuts and one piece of chocolate just like the episode.
    • The "jumping over nuts" scenario has been withdrawn from the book.
    • All of Dora's friends with their mothers have been withdrawn from the party at the end in the book.
