Bright, colorful illustrations and easy-to-read text in both English and Spanish captivate young readers as they find the answers to such questions as "What do the rainbow's colors symbolize?” “We light candles for what special event?” “What time of the year is green for growing?” and “What celebration is more full of wonder than all the others?” For catechists and families looking for a resource that familiarizes children with the Church’s feasts and seasons, Dominga’s Wonderful Year/El año maravilloso de Dominga is an excellent introduction.
