Often I will use well known characters in the stories I tell them. Dora and Boots are very popular and usually in my stories, my children will go on an adventure with Dora and Boots. Because it's almost Hanukkah, I made up a story for my 4 year old, "Hanukkah Dora". Dora and Boots had to get home before sunset to light the menorah. When they got home, everyone got one present and I went through all the characters. Then she asked me about Map and Backpack. So I said Map got some colored construction paper because he liked to make maps. My 4 year old correctly pointed out to me that Map does not have hands. So I told her Map puts the pencil in his mouth and draws maps that way.
