Editor’s Pick: Chicka Chicka Boom Boom

Best Chicka Chicka Boom Boom

Our top baby books of the ones we reviewed for a number of reasons. This book has been a favorite of parents for quite some time now, and when looking at it again we could definitely see why!

The illustrations in the book are very bright and colorful, and really engage your little one.

The story is also great, and is what makes this book stand out from the crowd. The whole story is told in rhyme, which seems to please the babies we read it to, and makes reading it as a parent an absolute joy.

Another great advantage of this book, though, is that it is educational without being boring. It uses the 26 characters of the alphabet as characters in the story – a and b and c decide to go up the coconut tree, which sounds like a great idea until all the other letters of the alphabet decide to follow them.

The tree cannot take the weight, and eventually all the letters fall out of the tree, and end up in a big heap underneath!

PROS
  • The rhyming structure of this book is a joy. The children we read it to found the rhythm of the story really engaging, and particularly enjoyed the climax of the story, when all the letters fall to earth.
  • The edition we reviewed is an extended edition which we had not come across before – after all the lower-case letters have had their fun, they are joined by all their “mamas and papas and uncles and aunts”, the upper-case letters! This really adds an extra dimension to the story, and should ensure that your little one does not get bored of reading this book for a very long time.
  • The catchy phrases in the book, from the titular “Chicka Chicka Boom Boom” to the madcap “skit skat skoodle doot” are great fun to repeat with your kid. Some of the parents we talked to even said that these had become catch phrases that they shared with their child when they were growing up, and both children and parents had fond memories of singing such nonsense around the house!
  • The colors in this book, though, are what really set it apart from the competition. The story is crazy, and the colors used really match this, from the hot-pink border of each page to the luxuriant green of the central palm tree.
CONS
  • Perhaps the only disadvantage here is that your little one might fall in love with this book so much that you tire of reading it to them. We don’t think so, though.
