There is always enough room on your child's bookshelf for this Classic Board Book edition of the rollicking alphabet chant that has been a children's favorite for over thirty years!

A told B,
and B told C,
"I'll meet you at the
top of the coconut tree"

In this lively alphabet rhyme, all the letters of the alphabet race each other up the coconut tree. Will there be enough room? Oh, no--Chicka Chicka Boom! Boom!

Countless children--and their parents--can joyfully recite the familiar words of this beloved alphabet chant. Bill Martin, Jr., and John Archambault's rhythmic text keeps the beat with Caldecott Honor illustrator Lois Ehlert's bold, cheerful art. This winning combination has made the Chicka Chicka series an enduring classic.
