18 classic nursery rhymes take on a new twist as the traditional verses are embellished with Spanish words. Those rascally Three Little Kittens turn into Three Little Gatitos who have lost their mitoncitos and Little Miss Muffet trades in her curds and whey for some beans and arroz. Lots and lots of fun and a glossary in the back to help translate the new vocabulary.
