Cricket Magazine is always full of delightful surprises, and this edition is no different. Stories and articles travel through time and around the world – as far away as China – to reach your young learners. 


Gorgeous illustrations, fun games, poems, and more keep kids engaged, while folktales and fiction entertain, and articles and history educate. Meet Edmonia Lewis, a sculptor who blazed a groundbreaking artistic path despite countless obstacles. And learn how the terracotta warriors of China were accidentally discovered. Or get some insight into the mysterious Mona Lisa. So much to learn, even more to love.
