November/December 2023

Celebrate the holidays with Cricket!

Sing carols with cowboys, rescue a turkey from Thanksgiving, get nibbled by mice, light Diwali candles, and join a joyous dance with Torah scrolls. You’ll enjoy a fantasy story about a young prince who must pass a puzzling test to save a kingdom, a humorous tale about a fool who proves to be a wise ambassador for peace, and the true story of a heroic pigeon who saved a beleaguered battalion during World War I. There’s a new poetry contest, a Crossbird Puzzle, and the bugs invite a family of turkeys for a holiday feast. H’m, wonder what—or who—is on the menu?
