Description


This hardcover edition is beautifully written and illustrated by the infamous Eric Carle.

A small cricket hatches one warm day, and the other insects greet him. Though the little guy wants very much to respond, nothing happens when he rubs his wings together. Finally, as night falls, he spies another cricket and attempts to greet her. And this time . . . he chirped the most beautiful sound that she had ever heard.

As usual, Carle's art is lovely and his story is simple and satisfying. But this book has something The Very Hungry Caterpillar and The Very Busy Spider didn't have: an electronic chirping mechanism activated by the turning of the last page.

Why Our Experts Love It


We love this book because it is a simple, beautiful book for kids young and old.

We like to think of it like a cricket love story of sorts.

Just rub your wings and beautiful things can happen . . .


A little bit about Eric Carle because we like him so much; He was born in 1929 and moved to Germany when he was six. He went to a prodigous art school and then got his first job at the New York Times. One day, a respected educator and author, Bill Martin Jr, called Carle to illustrate a story he'd written. The result . . . Brown Bear Brown Bear What do you see? . . . and as they say, the rest is history. Since then, Carle and Martin have sold millions of books worldwide
  • A great way to spend quality time with your child is reading to them and this should begin when they are infants.

  • Exposing children to books at this young age is the first step to peaking their future interest in reading.

  • Rhyming, recognizing first sounds in words, and syllable awareness are all phonemic awareness skills your child has before they are ready to start reading.

  • We do not often think of reading when it comes to our toddlers, but they start hearing about the ABCs in songs and begin gaining letter recognition starting at around 2 years of age.

  • Most children will begin to read between the ages of 5-6 years. But before they can read they need to gain the foundation of pre-reading skills.
