Whether this rhyme is said in English or Spanish (Español), one simple truth still remains: eggs and walls don't mix.

One way to help your child gain early literacy skills is to share with him or her your favorite rhymes, songs, and stories in your own language. Bounce your child gently up and down to this rhyme: Humpty Dumpty.

English:

Humpty Dumpty sat on a wall.
Humpty Dumpty had a great fall.
All the king's horses and all the king's men
Couldn't put Humpty together again.

Español:

Humpty Dumpty se sentó en la pared.
Humpty Dumpty se cayó sin merced.
Ni los caballos ni los caballeros del rey
pudieron armar a Humpty Dumpty otra vez.
