When my children were little, I read Chicka Chicka Boom Boom by Bill Martin, Jr and John Archambault so many times I could say the entire book by heart. And honestly, I was OK with that.
Many a children’s book grows old after reading it for the one-hundred-and-fiftieth time, but not this one. I read it nearly every day, and still enjoyed the rhyming chant through the letters of the alphabet as they scurry up the coconut tree, and then the hurts and bruises after they fall down.
Chicka Chicka Boom Boom is a delightful way to read aloud to your toddler, and teach them their letters too.
I wish I had known about Chicka Chicka 1 2 3 when my youngest was little. Chicka Chicka 1 2 3 is to numbers what Chicka Chicka Boom Boom is to letters – except the numbers all climb an apple tree.
Both books are worth reading again and again to your children.
