Chicka Chicka Boom Boom

Sing along with this cheerful alphabet race up the coconut tree.
A told B, and B told C, and one by one, like energetic kids playing, they race up the coconut tree. Chicka Chicka Boom Boom! Will there be enough room? Sing along as the playful letters make their way up the coconut tree, making it bend from their weight, and . . . BOOM! BOOM! Authors Bill Martin Jr. and John Archambault’s rhythmic lyrics and Caldecott Honor illustrator Lois Ehlert’s bright, bold colors make for a catchy way to remember the alphabet—both lower and uppercase letters. When A wakes up and starts back up the tree . . . what do you think will happen next?
