Chicka Chicka Boom Boom
Chicka Chicka Boom Boom - Bill Martin Jr.,John Archambault,Lois Ehlert

Some silly lowercase letters get into some trouble when all letters from a-z climb up a coconut tree. The book has vibrant illustrations of lowercase and capital letters. Students are encouraged to practice their recognition skills as the book is read. A fun activity for letter recognition is to have a cut out of the coconut tree and have students place the letters on the tree as the book is read. The students could also practice beginning sequencing by remembering what order the letters went up and came down from the tree.

I’ll beat you to the top of the coconut tree!

Ever since I was in Elementary School, this has been a classic fun book to read in the classroom. Chicka Chicka Boom Boom is one of those books that has it’s own little beat as it’s read. As a child, I would beg my mother to read this book to me because she was so good at giving each letter a different voice as well as reading with the beat. A guaranteed win with any classroom during shared reading! This is a fun book to begin the year out with in Kindergarten to help with learning all the letters of the alphabet. Also a fun book for beginner readers to feel confident reading since there is a continuous phrase repeated through the book.

Brief Review:

Chicka Chicka Boom Boom is about rhyming with the alphabet, so young children can learn the alphabet.

Idea of how it can be used in a classroom:

Chicka Chicka Boom Boom could be used in the classroom by teaching rhyming and the alphabet. The teacher could use the story to teach the students the alphabet.

Reading Level & Leveling System:

Book Rating:

I would rate this book a 5 because I think its great to have a story behind the alphabet and rhyming words with it, so gives students a chance to put the alphabet and a little bit of background information.

Chicka Chicka Boom Boom can be integrated in many ways. This book is meant to be sung and can be incorporated into Music class. It also teaches the alphabet. I would use this to help my class identify the lower and upper case letters.

Chicka Chicka Boom Boom is such fun book for young readers to be exposed to the letters of the alphabet. The students stay engaged as they see if all of the letters will fit at the top of the coconut tree. One fun extension activity could be to make a large tree and display it on the white board or bulletin board with the title "Chicka Chicka Boom Boom, Look Who's In Our Room" and allow students to come and spell their names with pre-cut letters.
