Product Review (submitted on February 8, 2017):
I adored Cricket as a child--everything about the magazine from the stories, poems, Ugly Bird's crossword puzzle, and the ongoing saga of Cricket & Ladybug & friends along the bottom of the pages. Every issue was like a whole, enchanting world of delight for me. I hoarded those issues for my entire childhood, until I moved out and they were passed on to my younger cousins. Later, when I became a mother myself, my cousin who had delighted over them herself boxed them up and mailed them to my daughter. Obviously, after seeing my child devour issue after raggedy, but beloved old issue of Cricket, I ordered the magazine for her--which she loved getting in the mail just as much as I had. The full-color, glossy illustrations only add to the charm of this gorgeous childhood treasure--nothing has been taken away from the top-notch intellectual content. Now I have ordered Click for my little niece and Spider for my nephew while I wait for them to develop the reading skills to savor Cricket. Thank you so much for continuing to produce these wonderful magazines.
