A told B,
and B told C,
I'll meet you at the top of the coconut tree
In this lively alphabet rhyme, all the letters of the alphabet race each other up the coconut tree. Will there be enough room? Oh, no -- Chicka Chicka Boom Boom!
The well-known authors of Barn Dance and Knots on a Counting Rope have created a rhythmic alphabet chant that rolls along on waves of fun. Lois Elhert's rainbow of bright, bold, and cheerful colors makes the merry parade of letters unforgettable.
Katy, a brave and untiring tractor, who pushes a bulldozer in the summer and a snowplow in the winter, makes it possible for the townspeople to do their jobs. This classic story is now an oversized board book, perfect for sharing at storytime!
Katy the snowplow was always waiting for her big chance to help. But with winters that usually didnand#8217;t hold a lot of snow, Katy didnand#8217;t have much opportunity to shine. Then a blizzard blankets the city and everyone is relying on Katy for help. This tale from the Caldecott Medal winner Virginia Lee Burton is an enduring winter favorite! Now with large sturdy pages, excellent for reading aloud with little ones. Look for the companion oversize board book Mike Mulligan and His Steam Shovel.
