Publisher Description:
"A told B,

and B told C,

I'll meet you at the top of the coconut tree"

In this lively alphabet rhyme, all the letters of the alphabet race each other up the coconut tree. Will there be enough room? Oh, no -- Chicka Chicka Boom Boom

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 rainbow of bright, bold, and cheerful colors makes the merry parade of letters unforgettable.
