A fun picture book for children that anthropomorphizes the alphabet. It is a great book for young children that teaches the alphabet. As a kid, I liked this picture book because the alphabet letters had personalities and were "alive." This book invites children to chant along with the refrain of Chicka, Chicka, Boom, Boom, which makes it perfect for Storytime. ( )

A great alphabet book with a great beat to it. The rhythm, antics and repetitive refrain draws in the reader. A cute first introduction to upper and lower case letters.
