Domingo Teporingo: Primavera
Domingo Teporingo: Spring

In the second book in the series, Domingo the Rabbit and his friends crawl out from their winter burrows, ready to welcome spring with campfires, parties, and adventures.  The arrival of Doña Roña, Domingo's distant and rather unpleasant relative,  threatens to spoil the springtime cheer in the woodlands. This fun series is full of adventures and funny, charming illustrations that are sure to pull in even the most reluctant of readers.
