Rise High with Cricket

This Cricket will raise your spirits with fantasy stories about dragons, an island that floats in the sky, a new kid’s magical first day of school, and the amazing science story of why helium balloons rise. Contemporary fiction includes the touching story of how a girl begins to teach her challenged older brother how to read, and a humorous visit from an aunt with a mysterious secret. Old Cricket concludes with the fascinating history of how Sequoyah created an original writing system for the Cherokee Nation.

You will also enjoy Cricket’s Letterbox, where you can read letters from other Cricket readers around the world; Ugly Bird's Crossbird puzzle; the Favorite First Sentences feature; and the Cricket League section, with original stories, poems, and art created entirely by kids your age.
