Chicka Chicka Boom Boom is a story about the alphabet letters climbing a coconut tree The lower case letters climb up the tree, but the tree bends and the letters fall out Then capital letters the older relatives help the lower case letters back up into the tree Each of the lower case letters gets hurt during the fall from the tree and the book describes each letter s injury Then, at night, letter A dares the other letters to catch him while he climbs the coconut tree Chicka Chicka Boom Boom is an alphabet picture book because the story is told through the use of bright pictures and text The color of the letters in the text also correlates with the letters in the pictures Further, the book jumps right into the story without unnecessary dialogue This book is great to use when teaching the alphabet because of its use of repetition and rhyming The use of these literary devices and bright and fun illustrations makes this book a great text to use for teaching the alphabet to kindergartners, first graders, and second graders. 25 25 Q s MRS.MORGANThis book puts Shakespeare and Hamilton to shame A children s book, yet studied by Harvard and Yale scholars Albert Einstein and Bill Nye the Science Guy were read Chicka Chicka Boom Boom as children Upon dissection of a child s brain, they found that this book had increased the size of their frontal lobe by 500% In fact, to be accepted to Harvard, one must write a 30 page essay about the significance of Chicka Chicka Boom Boom It is said, that students who read this book once a day, will pass all AP exams they take in their life. We read this often It makes Emily smile. Although I see this on many children s lists, and it was in the Kindergarten box I borrowed from the library A whole box you can check out that are picked out a head of time based on a theme, letters, numbers, shapes, etc , but my kids found it okay I m wondering if maybe it just didn t hold their attention long enough for them to understand the story It is a cute concept with nice illustrations, just not one of our favorites. Chicka Chicka Boom Boom is one that I remembered reading as a kid but before I re read it I couldn t remember what it was about It was a fun tongue twisting rhyming book that I m sure any kid would enjoy reading listening to The colorful pages and big print make it easy and entertaining to read as well. This is a great example of why you shouldn t judge a book by its cover.I wasn t even sure what I was in for when I picked this one up The cover doesn t do the book any justice It s an alphabet book in rhyme, and what a rhyme it is To really appreciate it, you should read it aloud I did thank goodness there was nobody around and got totally sucked in It s almost like you re performing a chant, or one of those clapping games from childhood well, my childhood I may be dating myself here The basic premise is that all the lowercase letters climb to the top of the coconut tree which can t hold them all After they all fall down, everyone s upset and the capital letters come running to help It s a different sort of concept for an alphabet book.The pictures are simple perhaps a little too simple but then again, so is the story It s the rhyme that s the real star here This would be fun to read to kids and I imagine that, after a few read throughs, the kids would be joining in Quotable moment Quick and fun read with the kids In This Lively Alphabet Rhyme, The Letters Of The Alphabet Race Up The Cocunut Tree Will There Be Enough Room Oh, No Chicka Chicka Boom Boom 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 Cocunut 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 Ehlert S Rainbow Of Bright, Bold, Cheerful Colors Makes The Merry Parade Of Letters Unforgettable
