1. This book would fall under the category of a picture book, alphabet.
2. The letters are having a party at the top of the coconut tree. Chicka chicka boom boom, will there be enough room?
3. critique
a. The strongest part of this book is its written appeal in a sing song style.
b. This book is a fun read that makes the words sound like a song. The rhyming words fit together in a poem that makes the reader want to sing along. The story is entertaining and unexpected the first time through – but encourages the reader to read it again and again.
c. “A told B and B told C, “I’ll meet you at the top of the coconut tree.”” Who doesn’t want to be part of this party? After the tree falls down from too many letters, the injured letters come out of the pileup to show their different problems – “skinned-knee D and stubbed-toe E.” This book encourages the readers to sing along with the rhyme.
4. a curriculum connection
This book is an ideal selection for beginning readers. The words are predictable and entertaining which encourages the book to be read and reread. Letter recognition and rhyme recognition could be found throughout this book. This is a great kindergarten selection!
