Overview: In this adaptation of the ever-popular “Chicka Chicka Boom Boom,” the letters of the alphabet go on the same adventure up a coconut tree. With rhyming and laughter throughout, the letters finally tumble to the ground. It is shorter than the original, and available as a board book, so this book is great for even the youngest readers!

Activity: Since this book is for the youngest readers, have letters already cut out and have the students decorate the letters with their favorite art supplies. Then hang these letters on a blow up coconut tree, or on a bulletin board.
