Alphabet Books: Chicka Chicka Boom Boom

One of our facebook fans recently recommended Chicka Chicka Boom Boom as one of their favorite children’s books. I agree- and now this bright and cheery board book resides on my children’s bookshelf.  

A told B and B told C, “I’ll meet you at the top of the coconut tree.”

Chicka Chicka Boom Boom by Bill Martin Jr. and John Archambault, is a fun read and a great way to introduce the alphabet to your kids.  This book is perfect for both babies as well as toddlers.  My kids enjoy shouting “Chicka Chicka Boom Boom” – and they think it’s pretty funny when all of the letters race up and then come tumbling out of the coconut tree.

There are many fun Chicka Chicka Boom Boom activities you can do with your children!  Check these out:

Even the Obama’s love this book! Here is a picture of President Barack Obama and First Lady Michelle Obama reading Chicka Chicka Boom Boom on Easter to a group of children.  To hear the whole book, plus Sasha and Melia reading another one of their favorites, Where the Wild Things Are, watch this video.
