Whether you say this rhyme in English or Español (Spanish), it's nice to know that you can always "count" on your family.

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. After listening to this finger rhyme, create one for your child about the members in your own family.

English: Hold up one finger for each family member.

There are five people in my family.
One daddy, one mother,
One tiresome brother,
One baby brand new... and me.
1, 2, 3, 4, 5,
There are five people in my family.
How many people are in yours?

Español: Levanta un dedo por cada persona en tu familia.

Hay cinco personas en mi familia que son,
Mi papá, mi mamá,
Mi hermana traviesa
Un nuevo bebé...y yo.
Uno, dos, tres, cuatro, cinco,
Hay cinco personas en mi familia.
¿Cuántas personas hay en tu familia?
