­­A little bit of winter doesn’t stop us from traveling around the world as long as we have this edition of CRICKET Magazine. Even though you’ll find plenty of poems about the wonderful world of winter, you’ll also enjoy stories from as far as China and Japan!


As always, CRICKET Magazine opens the door to new worlds and this edition is no different. In fact, this CRICKET takes you to the bottom of the world. Get to know the true story of the Endurance, it’s crew, and their adventures crossing the Antarctic while being endlessly entertained by mythology and fables from China, Japan, and more. With crosswords, cartoons, and poems, you and your children will be smiling from cover to cover.
