5.0 out of 5 stars A preschooler's book adults can love, 14 Aug. 1997
By A Customer
This review is from: Chicka Chicka Boom Boom (Hardcover)
Sometimes I despair of finding a decent children's book written after 1960. All that seems to be written these days is heavy, awful didactic stuff that appears to be written by someone who has never even seen a child, let alone talked to one. When I sit down to read to my little nephews, I generally turn to the classics of my childhood, or of my parents' childhood. And then I discovered Chicka Chicka Boom Book.

The book is nothing more than an extended rhyme about the letters of the alphabet climbing (and falling from) a coconut tree. The artwork is extrememly simple- it reminds me a little of Matisse' paper cutouts. The text has a wonderful rhythmic structure that has kids chanting along in no time. "Chicka chicka boom boom- will there be enough room? A, B and C up the coconut tree!"

It sounds silly. I know. But I really love this book.
