This book is a creative way of introducing lower-case letters and upper-case letters through vibrant colors and creative word-play. This book is also a favorite by many students everywhere. Using this book to help students identify letters and differentiating lower and uppercase letters is a great idea for using this book in the classroom. I would also use this book for group reading because of repetitive lines that the students can help read along with.

Chicka Chicka Boom Boom is an adorable book about the lowercase letters of the alphabet, one by one, climbing up a coconut tree together. Once they all get to the top, they all fall down and get boo-boo's! Then the uppercase letters come and help all the lowercase letters. I would use this book for teaching the alphabet and identifying uppercase and lowercase letters.
This is a fun and very entertaining story about lowercase letters being used as children who want to climb up a tree. All of the letters climb up in order, only to fall down and get hurt. The parents (the capital letters) come to help the kids back up and brush them off. That night while the parents are sleeping, all of the children run back outside and start climbing the tree again. This story could be used to make all kinds of activities from playing out the story to making a musical game. I would use this story in my classroom for lower grades to help with letter practice and for higher grades to make musical activities.

Chicka Chicka Boom Boom is a story about the alphabet letters climbing a coconut tree. The lower-case letters climb up the tree, but the tree bends and the letters fall down. Then the capital letters relatives help the lower-case letters back up into the tree. Each of the lower-case letters get hurt falling down the tree and the book describes each letter’s injury. Then, at night, letter “A” dares the other letters to catch him while he climbs the coconut tree
I would use this book to help with learning the alphabet. This book is a fun way that is catchy and rhythmic that helps with learning the alphabet.
