About the BookAn alphabet rhyme/chant that relates what happens when the whole alphabet tries to climb a coconut tree.
Book SynopsisThere is always enough room on your child's bookshelf for this rollicking alphabet chant that has been a children's favorite for over thirty years! A told B,
and B told C,
"I'll meet you at the
top of the coconut tree" In this lively alphabet rhyme, all the letters of the alphabet race each other up the coconut tree. Will there be enough room? Oh, no--Chicka Chicka Boom! Boom! Countless children--and their parents--can joyfully recite the familiar words of this beloved alphabet chant. Bill Martin, Jr., and John Archambault's rhythmic text keeps the beat with Caldecott Honor illustrator Lois Ehlert's bold, cheerful art.

Q: What are the dimensions of the book? Is it the large or smaller version of the board book?
A: This board book is the newer BIG "lap size" edition and the dimensions are 10.8" long x 8.25" wide x 13/16" deep/thick. It does say the following in the details section: "For the first time ever, the complete edition of the original Chicka Chicka Boom Boom story will be available in a new lap-sized board book that will surely delight a new generation of Chicka Chicka fans." We didn't notice the lap-size reference when we ordered...we thought we were getting the regular small board book version and we were surprised when we got a huge one. Target, please consider adding "Big Lap-Sized Edition" or something like that to the heading on this page to eliminate any confusion. Thank you.submitted byCat Lover - 5 years ago
