Chicka Chicka Boom Boom

"Chicka Chicka Boom Boom" was written by Bill Martin, Jr. and John Archambault and was published in 1989. It was illustrated by Lois Ehlert.

This is a very popular alphabet picture book where the lowercase letters in the alphabet climb up a coconut tree. The tree can't hold all of the letters, and they all fall to the ground. The capital letters come to help the injured lowercase letters.

"H is tangled up with I. J and K are about to cry. L is knotted like a tie."

You can watch an animated singing version of this book on You Tube. I actually get this song stuck in my head during the day! Uh-oh!

"A is out of bed, and this is what he said, 'Dare double dare, you can't catch me. I'll beat you to the top of the coconut tree.' Chicka chicka BOOM! BOOM!"

For more fun, look up the Boom Chicka Boom song on YouTube and have fun singing and dancing to this song! Now you'll never get either one of these songs out of your head!
