About The Book

A told B,
and B told C,
“I’ll meet you at the top of
the coconut tree.”

So begins the lively alphabet rhyme that children and their parents love to recite. Bill Martin Jr and John Archambault’s rhythmic chant and Lois Ehlert’s bold, cheerful art have made Chicka Chicka Boom Boom a favorite for twenty years! To celebrate its twentieth anniversary, we are offering a new lapsize board book edition of Chicka Chicka ABC that will surely delight a new generation of Chicka Chicka fans.
