It's Culebra's birthday! His friends are planning a fiesta for him. When they go to buy regalos (gifts), bossy Rabbit (Conejo) tells everyone what to buy. How will Culebra like his sombrero, camisa, and pantalones? Well, how would YOU like a hat, shirt, and pants if you were a snake?

You'll enjoy this funny story about friends, mistakes, and forgiveness as you learn some new Spanish words.
