At night, EVERY NIGHT, I read to my children.
EVERY NIGHT--they enforce this rule. :)
One of the books we read is a book of spanish nursery rhymes.
Spanish in language--not, for sure, in origen.
Under the spanish rhyme is the attempt to translate the rhyme
Here is a super funny one that cracks us up EVERY TIME WE READ IT!
Something is lost here....
Soy chiquita, soy bonita
Soy la perla de mi mama
Si me ensucio el vestido,
Garrotazos me dara.
Pretty little Girl
I am small, I am pretty.
I am my mother's pearl.
If I soil my dress,
She will beat me.
I cannot even type that out without laughing aloud!
Some bit of humor/gentleness from the spanish version was
totally lost in the english version.
HA! HA! HA!
