This is a busy weekend for us. Tomorrow is my anniversary and Sunday is my daughter’s 4th birthday. Since it’s my daughter’s birthday weekend, I’m sharing the first line from my daughter’s favorite book Chicka Chicka Boom Boom.
“A told B and B told C, “I’ll meet you at the top of the coconut tree.”
About the Book:
When all the letters of the alphabet race one another up the coconut tree, will there be enough room?
Of course there is always enough room for this rollicking alphabet chant that has been a children’s favorite for more than twenty years! Bill Martin Jr and John Archambault’s rhythmic text keeps the beat with Caldecott Honor illustrator Lois Ehlert’s bold, cheerful art. This winning combination has created a series of enduring Chicka Chicka favorites, and now, for the first time ever, the complete edition of the original Chicka Chicka Boom Boom story is available as a Classic Board Book. With sturdy pages and rounded corners, this portable edition of an irresistible alphabet romp will delight a new generation of young readers.
