My 2 year old daughter absolutely loves this book. She cried when she saw me putting it in the book drop at the library. We'll be checking it out again soon.

"A told B, and B told C, I'll meet you at the top of the coconut tree." One of my favorite ABC picture books from childhood, I can still recite it by heart! A must-read classic for beginning alphabet learners.

An alphabet race to the tree until “Chicka Chicka Boom Boom,” and all the little alphabets fall off. The bright, bold, cheerful colours will make these letters unforgettable.

Super fun to read!! My son had it memorized after only a few reads and learned his alphabet at the same time.
Highly recommend the CD to listen to :)
