Chicka Chicka abc
by Bill Martin Jr and John Archambault
Illustrated by Lois Ehlert
Today’s Throwback Thursday Picture Book is one of my favorite little board books. This was the first book I received as a baby gift when my son was born. We read this little ABC rhyme book over and over and it seemed quite the perfect first book for my little Florida baby. We’ve never been in short supply of coconut trees down here in the sunshine state.
This is our book, faded and lovingly worn around the edges, first read with my son and then again with my little girl.
The best part about celebrating Chicka Chicka abc today is I have Lois Ehlert’s new book, The Scraps Book: Notes from a Colorful Life reserved and waiting for me to pick up at Barnes & Noble.
Julie Danielson of the impossibly wonderful blog, Seven Impossible Things Before Breakfast, shares an interview with Lois Ehlert over at Book Page. You may just end up going to get a copy too after you read the interview.
What was your baby’s first book?
