Chicka Chicka Boom Boom by Bill Martin, John Archambault, Lois Ehlert

The complete edition of the bestselling children’s favorite, Chicka Chicka Boom Boom, is now available as a Classic Board Book!

A told B
and B told C,
“I’ll meet you at the top
of the coconut tree.”
When all the letters of the alphabet race one another up the coconut tree, will there be enough room?
Of course there is always enough room for this rollicking alphabet chant that has been a children’s favorite for more than twenty years! Bill Martin Jr and John Archambault’s rhythmic text keeps the beat with Caldecott Honor illustrator Lois Ehlert’s bold, cheerful art. This winning combination has created a series of enduring Chicka Chicka favorites, and now, for the first time ever, the complete edition of the original Chicka Chicka Boom Boom story is available as a Classic Board Book. With sturdy pages and rounded corners, this portable edition of an irresistible alphabet romp will delight a new generation of young readers.

Is this "board book" a book with pages that don't tear? We have the full size book. Our granddaughter LOVES it but at one year old I'd love to have one she can hold on her own.

As a teacher and mother, this is one of 8-10 books I always give as a baby shower gift. I love the bold illustrations,rhythm, and predictability/repetition of phrases and so do young children. This is the kind of book that helps encourage early reading development.

So glad to see "Chicka Chicka Boom Boom" in lap (oversized board) edition. The new format allows babies and toddlers to fully enjoy this great book. The story is a wonderful introduction to the alphabet as well as a fun rhyming, colorfully illustrated story. Perfect for young children! Now these pre-readers can touch, play with, and study (because that's what they are doing) this fantastic book, time and time again. It will hold up under their use and be treasured.
