Reviews for Chicka Chicka ABC


Horn Book Guide Reviews 2012 Spring
This board book version of the perennially popular preschool classic fails in many respects. First is the unfortunate translation of "boom boom" as "bum bum." Second is the fact that the Spanish alphabet's double l and q are not included here, diminishing the book's usefulness for Spanish-speaking children. Finally, as with Chicka Chicka ABC it ends in the middle of the original story.

Horn Book Guide Reviews 2009 Fall
This "special anniversary edition" is larger than the previous board book adaptation of Chicka Chicka Boom Boom, but unfortunately it's otherwise unchanged. The book ends halfway through the story, with the lowercase letters left in a heap after having fallen out of the coconut tree. Invest in the original classic.

For smallest hands, book-based entertainment abounds. Fans of Chicka Chicka Boom Boom can shake a tiny maraca to the beat of "A told B and B told C, `l'll meet you at the top of the coconut tree" with the Chicka Chicka ABC Board Book & Rattle by Bill Martin Jr., illus. by Lois Ehlert.
