Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly - Publishers Weekly
Children can act out "A told B/ and B told C,/ `I'll meet you at the top/ of the coconut tree' " with the magnets included in the Chicka Chicka ABC Magnet Book by Bill Martin Jr. and John Archambault, illus. by Lois Ehlert. The spiralbound edition of Chicka Chicka Boom Boom boasts an easel stand with an attached magnetic sheet that slips under each page; the magnetic letters in a matching palette come packaged in a resealable case.
Children's Literature
You do need instructions to use this book and fortunately they are on the first page. The spiral bound book has an easel-back stand. The magnetic sheet has to be placed under a page of the book and the ABC magnets go on the top. This is not a book that will work well without some parental or caregiver assistance. It is fun for kids to select and match up the letters as they follow along with the story. For those who may not be familiar with it, the letters work their way up to the top of a coconut tree and when they all get there, well guess what. The tree bends and all of the letter fall "Boom! Boom!" It is the kind of rhyme and humor that kids enjoy. The last page suggests that they can create their own words and scenes and the next page shows the entire colorful alphabet. The original book has been around since 1989 and it has been given new life in this activity version. Keeping the letters safe in their zippered pouch may be the biggest challenge facing kids and their caregivers. 2002, Little Simon/Simon & Schuster,
