Project to go with Leaf Man by Lois Ehlert
Teaches the ABC's. Perks: kids love the "chicka chicka boom boom" sound effect, the personification of the letters of the alphabet, and the tumble and fall at the end. I'll never really understand why this is a favorite and how on earth it is so darn effective, but I've seen results enough to know better than to question it. chicka chicka, boom boom, chicka boom, bill martin, martin jr, favorit book, ebook cheap, kid book, children book
Chicka Chicka Boom Boom (Title) Written By: Bill Martin Jr. And John Archambault Illustrated By: Lois Ehlert This is a delightful story about the alphabet. The story has a catchy rhythmic pattern. Before long your children will be reciting the story back to you.
