WASHINGTON, DC, USA, December 22, 2022 /EINPresswire.com/ — Cricket Media, award-winning publisher and eLearning provider for children in the United States and China, is launching a new children’s magazine for the China market.
CRICKET’S WORLD OF WONDER (蟋蟀创想国) is a Chinese-language magazine that features content drawn from across the Cricket family of magazines. CRICKET’S WORLD OF WONDER will run at 128 pages in a main volume, along with a separate bonus 24-page activities magazine. In each issue, the main volume of CRICKET’S WORLD OF WONDER will explore a central theme using both fiction (stories and poems) and nonfiction (articles, crafts, recipes, and more) from Cricket magazines.
The 24-page activities volume, called MAKE AND PLAY, will feature activities and experiments that provide a hands-on connection to the issue theme. In addition, MAKE AND PLAY will publish STEM-oriented content provided in cooperation with IEEE, the world’s leading association of electronics and electrical engineers. All content will be in Chinese, translated from the original English.
Children have been enjoying and learning from Cricket publications in North America since the first issue of CRICKET Magazine was published in September 1973, and since 2012 in China. Cricket CEO Alex Wang noted that, “CRICKET’S WORLD OF WONDER (蟋蟀创想国) reflects the best of Cricket’s rich magazine legacy, organized and presented with local flavor specifically for the China market. CRICKET’S WORLD OF WONDER (蟋蟀创想国) will meet the needs of families in China for many years to come.”
