"A told B, and B told C, 'I'll meet you at the top of the coconut tree.' " When I think of teaching the alphabet and letter recognition I think of this book. The simple bold illustrations of letters rhythmically climbing to the top of the coconut tree all the while building suspense as we wonder, "Chicka chicka boom boom! Will there be enough room?" In the text the letters, A,B,C etc., are in upper case while in the illustrations they are in lower case. This offers a great visual teaching moment without being pushy. There are so many lesson plan ideas for letter recognition and rhyming patterns that you can really have fun with this book. Have a Chicka Chicka Boom Boom week and develop progressive lessons that will build on each other each day. www.wondersomestorytime.com

Jennifer Starkman, July 7, 2007 (view all comments by Jennifer Starkman)
Chicka Chicka Boom Boom is , without a doubt, one of the best ABC books I have ever come across. As the letters dance their way up the coconut tree and come flying down again, the rollicking rhymes will have both adults and kids laughing at the antics of a normally inanimate alphabet, and the parent-child relationship alluded to between capital and lower-case letters adds a note of sweetness without being overly sappy. The little details in Lois Ehlert?s cutout-style illustrations are great for helping kids identify individual letters (?skinned-knee h,? for example, has a bandage on its ?knee?). Chicka Chicka Boom Boom is a highly-recommended addition (both by me and by my young ?testers?) to any early-childhood library.
