A told B and B told C, “I’ll meet you at the top of the coconut tree.” “Whee,” said D to E, F, G, “I’ll beat you to the top of the coconut tree.” Chicka chicka boom boom, Will there be enough room? Soon all the letters follow and the coconut tree breaks and all the letters fall and get hurt. When the letters go home letter "A" dares the other letters to go again.
I think the story implies that just because your friends do something doesn't mean you should too. I think this is shows peer pressure. In the story, many letters follow the others letters up the coconut tree because "A" dared them to. The letters begin to see the letters before them ascending the coconut tree so they go too. The story says "Here comes H up the coconut tree. And I and J and tag-along K— All on their way up the coconut tree." This proves that the other letters, such as K, follows the other letters so it won't be left out.
I think another implication we are given from "Chicka Chicka Boom Boom" is learn from your mistakes. In the story all the letters fall out of the coconut tree and get hurt. After the letters go home and to bed, letter "A" is up and says "Dare, double dare, you can’t catch me. I’ll beat you to the top of the coconut tree." This shows us that "A" didn't learn it's lesson and may get hurt again.
