Not Good Condition

I don't feel a ripped out front page and loose pages constitutes Good Condition.

A favorite book that I used to read to my kindergarten class.

The book was in very good condition. My granddaughter enjoyed !

Chicka Chicka Boom Boom

The book I received had torn pages and writing all over it


Item it not good condition!! pages are cut out including the start of the story which defeats the purpose of an abc book for kids.

Missing CD as advertised and priced to include

This volume of the book was advertised and priced to include a CD recording of the book but upon arrival, the CD sleeve was empty in the back of the book and the CD was missing/not included. This edition was just a paperback with scruffy edges. Disappointed to pay extra for the CD that was not included.

Not like new

Pages ripped. Very disappointing

A classic kids book for learning letters- really awful quality

This is a book that I insist on having for my kids. I understand that the quality is going to be a little rough when I choose the "acceptable" option, but this particular copy had several ripped pages. One of the pages was torn to where part of a sentence is missing. Very disappointed.

NOT “good condition”

Just received our much anticipated copy of chicka chicka boom boom. Stickers on every single page and the text on the last page is completely torn out. Not happy with this purchase.

Wasn’t Happy

I love story but some pages were tore badly. But it’s still readable

Chicka Chicka Boom Boom

This book is very entertaining and an excellent way of teaching the ABC's! Reading this book to a child is fun for both! Fun rhyming and rhythm to this book. This classic is a hit with children, my child loved going through the alphabet and we made it fun by shouting out the "BOOM BOOM BOOM" parts!

Another "Booming" Chicka Boom product

What better way to suppliment the famous, popular and well loved "Chicka Chicka Boom Boom" Book than to add a CD. My kids are first grade students learning English as a Second Language. This book was not intended for ESL use, but the rythmic nature and familiarity made this CD-ROM a big hit.

This book has a great rhythm

My daycare kids by far favorite. There is a scream of glee when they see it. I give it as a Christmas present to all my daycare kids. Daycare parents tell me the kids read it to them. It's a fun read. If you want to board book it's called Chicka Chicka ABC -- by Jr, Bill Martin. Chicka Chicka Boom Boom is paper back. : )

Go ahead and emphasize the rhythm!

"Chicka Chicka, Boom Boom! Will there be enough room?"The simple, rhythmic text of this book just begs to be chanted as you read it to your young child. Go ahead and lose your self-consciousness and do it: Your child will love the book and learn the alphabet to boot!The story line is simple: the lower case letters pass along the word that everyone is going to climb to the top of the coconut tree. Just after z makes it up the tree, "Uh-oh! Oh, no! Chicka chicka BOOM BOOM!" The uppercase letters come along to "hug their little dears and dust their pants." I understand this is where the board book version of this story ends, but I would highly recommend that you buy the regular version instead. In the full-length version, the lower case letters get up from the jumble with all their bumps and bruises and head home. But after the sun goes down, "a gets 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!"If you have fun with it, your young children will love to listen to it. The alphabet is printed in its entirity (upper and lower case letters) in the fly leaves of the book, and these are great to point to while singing the alphabet song or play a quick game of "What's that?" before or after reading the book. And your child will quickly start to chant the story along with you, I'm sure!I, for one, was thrilled when my two-year old started bringing it to me and saying, "Read it, Mommy! Read it, the Boom Boom!" He's learning his letters and having fun. For what more could I ask?

Our favorite book!

"Skit skat skoodle doot, flip flop flee" has now become a part of our family vocabulary! My 3-year-old and 2-year-old sons love this book so much, that after checking it out constantly at the library, I'm buying it. My 2-year-old is hard to please when it comes to books--very few of them capture his attention. But this one he wants to read over and over. Also, it's a fun book for the parents to read (and if you have it, trust me, you'll read it 78 times a day) with its fun rhythm and rhyme, reminiscient of Dr. Seuss. You will LOVE this book, and your kids will too!
