Enjoy a starry summer night with Cricket!

In this Cricket you’ll thrill to a science fiction story about a crime-fighting girl with a robotic  brain; admire a quick-thinking South American girl who reaches for the stars as she dreams of becoming an astronomer; and learn why what you see in the night sky is only a fraction of what is really there—the rest is a mysterious “dark matter.”

You’ll also laugh at a ridiculous campfire “toast story,” cheer for a young swimmer who must confront her lack of confidence in a race, and enjoy part 2 of the heartwarming and dramatic story of how a devastating tornado brings together two friends—and an entire community.
