Chicka Chicka Boom Boom

I Love this book and highly recommend it for Preschool through even First Grade. It is fun to read with the rhythmic and repetitive phrases which are enjoyable and easy for children to pick up and help you read along. Below is a link to the Book put to music and animated pictures.

I also found a great website if you are looking to do this book in your classroom or even at home. Hubbard's Cupboard is a great website and I highly recommend it. She just inspires me. I also have a link to her site along the right side of the blog.

Her websites goal:
Hubbard's Cupboard is a website designed to be a resource for early childhood educators and parents.

But her most important thought that I 
wholeheartedly agree with is:
"If you find ideas and information that is useful for you and your children, please give all the praise, glory, and honor to the Lord Jesus Christ. I thank Him for the time, resources, and desire for making this website possible."

Chicka Chicka Boom Boom 

By Bill Martin Jr. & John Archambault
Illustrated By Lois Ehlert

About the book:
In this bright and lively rhyme, the letters of the alphabet race each other to the top of the coconut tree. When X, Y and Z finally scramble up the trunk, however, the weight is too much, and down they all tumble in a colorful chaotic heap: "Chicka Chicka . . . BOOM! BOOM!" All the family members race to help, as one by one the letters recover in amusingly battered fashion. Poor stubbed toe E has a swollen appendage, while F sports a jaunty Band-Aid and P is indeed black-eyed. As the tropic sun goes down and a radiant full moon appears, indomitable A leaps out of bed, double-daring his colleagues to another treetop race. This nonsense verse delights with its deceptively simple narrative and with the repetition of such catchy phrases as "skit skat skoodle doot." Ehlert's bold color scheme, complete with hot pink and orange borders, matches the crazy mood perfectly. Children will revel in seeing the familiar alphabet transported into this madcap adventure. Ages 2-6.
