Very Quiet Cricket, The (Board Book)
THE VERY QUIET CRICKET (Board Book). Carle. Will the very young cricket ever learn to chirp? In this classic story from celebrated author Eric Carle, the young cricket tries to communicate and eventually succeeds when he spies another cricket. In the uplifting surprise ending, the cricket actually chirps; a sound chip is embedded into the back of the book, lending an interactive quality to the title. (Batteries are included and replaceable with two 1.5v batteries.) Children learn about colors, the progress of time, a variety of insects, and the importance of perseverance through Carle's simple, repetitive text and eye-catching artistry. For ages 1-6; measures 7" L x 5" H. #B-55085.
