Can you roll your r's? Then try this rhyme:

Erre con erre cigarro
Erre con erre barril
Rápido corren los carros
Cargados de azúcar
Al ferrocarril

This collection is not so much nursery rhymes in the English sense as word games, riddles and tests of linguistic and lingual dexterity, such as above, to enrich a child's knowledge of Spanish. Cheerful watercolors enhance the text's playfulness. Thanks to the competent translations, English speakers also get a chance to test their skills.
