"Chicka Chicka Boom Boom" by Bill Martin Jr and John Archambault
This week's book is a classic! It's an absolute MUST for your little bookworm's library. Chicka Chicka Boom Boom by Bill Martin Jr. and John
Archambault was originally published in 1989 and has been on my reading
list ever since! It follows the lowercase letters of the alphabet as
they climb a coconut tree. "Chicka Chicka Boom Boom, will there be
enough room?" It turns out there isn't room for the whole alphabet as
the tree bends, spilling all the lowercase letters on the ground. Their
uppercase parents come to scoop them up, nursing injuries and wiping
tears. I love this book. It's fun, rhythmic, and the simple
illustrations are great for letter recognition. On a rainy day, it's
also lots of fun to act out with magnetic letters on your fridge!
