CRICKET Magazine is celebrating summer. Even if your summer vacation doesn’t include a trip to the shore, kids can experience all the sun, fun, and sand of the beach with this edition of CRICKET Magazine, as well as celebrate the 4th of July, read about a cool challenge for summer break, and discover what it takes to tame a wild horse.
Your child’s imagination vacation starts by following some baby turtles on the beach and takes him or her all the way to Japan to bring you the second part of Julie Angeli’s The Pearl Inside.
