I’m so glad you’re here for Day 8 of 365 Days of Children’s Books!
Chicka Chicka Boom Boom was one of the first books that I can remember loving to read with my oldest son, who was 12 months old at the time.
It wasn’t one that we just liked to read together, but we absolutely adored it.
Chicka Chicka Boom Boom is probably a staple in most home libraries for children. And if not, it should be!

Book: Chicka Chicka Boom Boom

If you have young children who are learning their letters, or still stumbling over portions of the alphabet, Chicka Chicka Boom Boom is an excellent reinforcement.
The premise of the book is that the whole alphabet wants to climb to the top of the coconut tree. But alas, there are several troubles along the way!
And I and J and tag-along K,
all on their way up the coconut tree.
Chicka chicka boom boom!
Will there be enough room?
It definitely has a sing-song-y, rhythmic feel, which we really enjoy!
