 So many stories, so little time. Luckily CRICKET Magazine has picked some of the best of the best to share with you.


A surprise presentation keeps some actors on their toes in one delightful story, while a mysterious adventure in the secret parts of a boarding school will keep your kids on their toes. You’ll travel back through history to read about some secret scientists and hear the narratives of children who have come to American from other lands and a child who visits a land far, far away from what he’s used to. You’ll also find some new chapters in stories from previous CRICKET Magazines. As always, sophisticated and lovely illustrations accompany each rich and meaningful article.
