One Book You Won’t Want to Forget!


Take a guess! 

With 5 clues see if you can name this one-of-a-kind children’s book from the past:

1.) Excerpt:

“A told B,

and B told C

I’ll meet you at the top

of the coconut tree.”

(Does that sound familiar?)

2.) There are 26 main characters who are introduced on the pages that are consumed by bright colors and bubbly rhymes!
3.) This picture book has some nonsense phrases, such as “skit skat skoodle doot” that will make children laugh!  Children love to see the 26 main characters or letters all bent out of shape, covered in band-aids, and even with a black eye.
4) Not only is this book entertaining, but it serves an educational purpose as well by introducing children to all of the letters in the alphabet from A to Z.  The rhythmic text allows children to read aloud and practice learning their alphabet in a fun and catchy way!

5.) Oh no - there’s a problem, though!  All of the letters want to meet each other at the top of the coconut tree.  So what do you think is going to happen when they all come tumbling down?  In a big heap the letters fall and can’t help it, but “Chicka Chicka . . . BOOM! BOOM!”
(Hint: The title of the book was in the last clue.)

If you guessed it this classic children’s book from the past is

Chicka Chicka Boom Boom, By Bill Martin Jr. and John Archambault.

I hope this has reminded you of books you loved reading when you were growing up.  So don’t forget about the books from your childhood and share them with those you love!
Chicka Chicka Boom Boom has bright, cheerful pictures with rhythmic text that are the perfect combination for a favorite read aloud at school or home.  After a few times through, children will be singing and repeating the alphabet aloud with you!
Happy Reading!
