Fulfill your dreams with Cricket.


In “She Dreamed of Dresses,” you’ll read the true story of Ann Lowe who, as an African American child growing up in Alabama, followed her dream of becoming a top New York fashion designer.

In “From Slave to Congressman,” you’ll learn about Robert Smalls, who led an ingenious escape from slavery to become a Civil War hero and United States congressman.

“False Impressions” begins a four-part serial about a boy in ancient Babylon who becomes entangled in a plot against King Hammurabi.

“The Human Zamboni” is the humorous story of a girl who dreams of being an Olympic ice skater until she discovers what her true ambition is. 

There’s a new art contest you can enter, a Crossbird puzzle, and the bugs find themselves skating on thin ice in their latest adventure.
