Chicka Chicka Boom Boom By: Bill Martin Jr. And John Archambault Illustrated by: Lois Ehlert

Chicka Chicka Boom Boom is a fun way to get your kids to learn the alphabet! The letters from A-Z are pictured on a full page spread with both the big and little letters. It is a great way to introduce kids who might know their upper case letters to the lower case ones they aren't familiar with. 


 The story reads almost like a song and has all the little lower case letters climbing up the coconut tree until the coconut tree can't hold any more and they all fall out!   "Skit skat skoodle doot, Flip flop flee. Everybody running to the coconut tree. Mamas and papas and uncles, and aunts hug their little dears, then dust their pants." That part is my girls favorite!  They love the silliness of it all! All the little letters some bruised and with lost teeth get up and leave but as the full moon comes out "a" gets out of bed and climbs up the tree taunting "Dare double dare, you can't catch me."  

This book now is just as fun to read as it was the first time! This will become a favorite for sure and parents use it as a fun learning tool! Here is to learning while reading and having fun doing it!!
