When my niece was a toddler, we read this book approximately 147 times in a single sitting (at least it felt like 147 times!). She loved the rhymes, rhythms, and pictures and kept saying, “again!” every time we finished. That’s a ringing endorsement in my book! --Beth
"A told B, and B told C, I'll meet you at the top of the coconut tree." Bold colors and bouncy text make this lively alphabet rhyme come to life! All the letters of the alphabet try to race each other up the coconut tree, but is there room enough for all 26 of them? The well-known authors of Barn Dance and Knots on a Counting Rope have created a rhythmic alphabet chant that rolls along on waves of fun. Lois Elhert's use of bold, contrasting colors complement the action of the story, and compel the reader to turn the page to see just what is going to happen next.
