Chicka Chicka ABCby Bill Martin
Synopses & Reviews
These unique board books bring the popular Montessori pedagogy to trade book form for the first time. Using materials and methods common to Montessori classrooms, these interactive board books immerse young children in an aesthetically rich learning experience, while providing parents and caregivers with carefully crafted language to encourage understanding.
In Montessori classrooms, students learn to write before they learn to read, so the process is driven by their own words and thoughts before those of others. Letters are taught first as sounds (instead of names), and alphabet tiles encourage children to trace each letter with their fingers. This book honors that tradition by emulating the standard classroom material with touchable, traceable letters and beautiful colors that evoke the elegant simplicity of the Montessori aesthetic.

B Is for Babar takes readers through an alphabet of fun with Babar and his family. Arthur plays the accordion, Flora feeds the fish, and more! Young children will love this bite-size adaptation of the classic picture book Babarandrsquo;s ABC.

Race to the top of the coconut tree with this delightful alphabet rhyme from the creators of andlt;Iandgt;Chicka Chicka Boom Boomandlt;/Iandgt;.andlt;BRandgt;andlt;BRandgt;andlt;Iandgt;A told B,andlt;BRandgt; and B told C,andlt;BRandgt; "I'll meet you at the top of the coconut tree." andlt;/Iandgt;andlt;BRandgt; andlt;BRandgt; So begins the lively alphabet rhyme that children and their parents love to recite. Martin and Archambault's rhythmic chant and Caldecott Honor artist Lois Ehlert's bold, cheerful art make this rollicking story an ideal companion to andlt;Iandgt;Chicka Chicka Boom Boomandlt;/Iandgt;.
