Children's Book Review: Boom Chicka Rock
Boom Chicka Rock
Written by: John Archambault
Illustrated by: Suzanne Tanner Chitwood
Published by: Philomel Books, 2004
From the co-author of the bestselling Chicka Chicka Boom Boom comes this adorable counting adventure for children of all ages! Suzanne Tanner Chitwood's colorful collage artwork features mischievous mice dancing through the story. Readers can count down the Congo Line and tally up the Tangoing, Tip-Toeing mice on every page, and learn about time, too! A rollicking, rhythmic romp through the numbers. Read it out loud-it rocks.
* From one of the authors of Chicka Chicka Boom Boom (one of my personal favorite kid's books!) comes this cute, counting book. Told in rhyme in this story tells about twelve mice who come out of the clock to play and dance while the cat's asleep. My son really enjoyed saying the line "Boom Chicka Rock, Chicka Rock, Chicka Boom!"
Family Rating: 1 1/2 thumbs up.
