Chicka Chicka Boom Boom is a well-loved book for children written by Bill Martin, Jr. and John Archambault. This book is best read by rapping the words or in a sing-song tune. The rhymes are fun and easy to memorize.

Chicka Chicka Boom Boom is a book about the alphabet that climbed up the coconut tree. When all of them were at the top, the letters all fell down. So the big letters came to their rescue because some got hurt.

We had this before on a tape, played on a tape player. The rhythm is catchy, upbeat and like a rap. The new format for DVD was different though but not less fun. The book is being recited like a song, with high notes and a wonderful rhythm that the children and adults too, would really love.

Below is a photo of my students, though they can’t be seen, watching a video of Chicka Chicka Boom Boom in the biggest room in the center where the occupational therapists work.

This room also doubles as a group or class venue because of its size. It also has a big television so it can also be turned into something like an audio-visual room. There are no seats though the children prefer to just stand and/or dance and/or move about when the video is playing songs or just sit on the floor when the video is not for dancing and moving around. They sit on rubber mats though if the center decides to upgrade using a home theater carpet, that would be good too.

Now, this singsong part, which is my favorite part actually, I can’t get it out of my mind now, “Chicka Chicka Boom Boom, look there’s a full moon. A is out of bed and this is what he said, “Dare double dare, you can’t catch me, I’ll beat you to the top of the coconut tree, Chicka, Chicka, Boom, Boom!”

Not sure where you can buy this Cess, my book has been with me since 1996 pa 😀

You can probably try buying them online and have relatives bring these home for you. Or try online videos to watch.
