Teachers, librarians, and students all love CRICKET! With its blend of contemporary and classic fiction, literary nonfiction, sci-fi and fantasy, poetry, drama and every other genre, CRICKET supplies endless opportunities for teaching reading skills, developing vocabulary, and exploring literary concepts. There are even learning opportunities in the margins, where a friendly gang of bug characters gloss vocabulary, explain historical references, and make jokes. Monthly writing contests and an active online community provide additional endless instructional opportunities.
