Chicka Chicka Boom Boom by Bill Martin Jr & John Archambault

This is a bold and beautiful alphabet book that has been delighting children for 20 years! Brilliant colors and simple graphics fill each polka-dot bordered page as the alphabet begins its adventurous journey to the top of a coconut tree, twice. The rhymes in the book are irresistible and fun to be read again and again. With verses like "Whee!" said D to E F G, "I'll beat you to the top of the coconut tree" it's a fun way to help young children learn the alphabet. I found the coconut tree and Velcro alphabet at Lakeshore Learning, and it has proven to be the perfect companion piece to the book. It gives children lots of hands on experience with the alphabet and is a great alternative to magnet letters (just in case you don't have appliances that they won't stick to). What's really great about the idea behind Chicka Chicka Boom Boom is that you there are a whole range of other products, such as alphabet blocks, magnet books, musical shakers, and number books that can be used to help reinforce alphabet learning in a fun and interactive way.
Where to Buy: Chicka Chicka Boom Boom is such a popular book you can find it in almost any outlet that sells children's books. I've only found the tree at Lakeshore Learning.
