Introduce little ones to the lovely city of Santo Domingo, the capital of the Dominican Republic, in both English and Spanish!
Introduce your little readers to Santo Domingo, the stunning capital of the Dominican Republic. Children will start their journey on the Teleférico; afterward, they will learn to tell time using the Reloj del Sol at the plazoleta, study the lush gardens of the Santo Domingo Greenbelt, dance to the beat at the Merengue Festival, and taste the delicious platters of cangrejo guisado and sancocho.
Parents will want to get their hands on these travel books to engage their little ones in the beauty of exploring new cultures and countries without ever necessarily leaving the comfort of their homes and just using their imagination!
