Another of my favorite children's book is Chicka Chicka Boom Boom by Bill Martin & John Archambault . This book is illustrated in bright colors that children will like. Lois Ehlert did the illustrations for this book.
This book is about the letters of the alphabet climbing up a coconut tree one at a time. Of course, when they get to the top they weigh the tree down and they all fall out starting the whole thing over.
What's great about this book besides the bright colors it that it is written in a rhyming pattern that draws the childrens attention. The funny sounding words like Chicka Chicka Boom Boom and others amuse the children. This book is great for teaching colors, letters, and rhyming patterns.
There are tons of resources online to use with this book and there is even an animated version of the book set to a song that children will love that's usually floating around the internet!
I absolutely love reading this book to children.
This book is great for 4 to 6 year old children although 7 and 8 year olds might like the animated version.
