This is one of our favorite children's books of all time. It has been a standard since our daughter was born, as its bright, bold pictures kept her interest from (almost) day one. And as she has gotten a bit older, she now loves to point out the words, letters, and pictures, asking for a description of what is happening. The simple-yet-engaging rhyme scheme is fun and easy to remember - we find ourselves repeating it all day, but not in an annoying "I wish I could get this out of my head" kind of way! A gem for both children and adults alike.

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.
