This book was reviewed by Carol Otis Hurst in Teaching K-8 Magazine.
With vivid colors and simple, motion-filled illustrations, each letter of the alphabet is running to the top of the coconut tree with a repeated chorus of "Chicka Chicka Boom Boom, Will there be enough room?" The text is rhythmic, charming and predictable.
