La linda manita
(Puerto Rican Kids Song)
La linda manita
The Lovely, Tiny Hand
Canción infantil
Children's Song

La linda manita
que tiene el bebé
qué linda, qué bella
qué preciosa es.

(Repita una vez más)

What a lovely, tiny hand
The baby has (got)!
How pretty, how lovely
How fine it is!

(Repeat one more time.)


Xiomara wrote, "This is a song that all mothers in Puerto Rico sing to their babies as they grow towards their first year. At the same time we sing this song, we wave our hand. The baby sees this and with time, they imitate the hand movement along with the song, helping them in developing their motor skills."
