Chicka Chicka Boom Boom is a bestselling children’s book written by Bill Martin, Jr. and John Archambault, illustrated by Lois Ehlert. It became a classic as soon as it was published in the category of picture books between the ages of 2-6.

The lower-case letters climb a coconut tree in alphabetical order until the tree bends so much that the letters fall out of the tree. Capital letters (the older relatives of the letters climbing the tree) come to help them. Again alphabetically, it describes each letter’s injury.


You can find tons of activities to do with your kids in the ages from 2-6. Here a few easy ideas:
