CRICKET March 2018
Cover art by Anna Bron
From connecting calls to coding, discover some interesting careers and see how they’ve come to be throughout history. You’ll also play with plays—both reading about a powerful performance, and get the opportunity to try one out! And that’s just the tip of the CRICKET.
Take a fascinating look at literature of old and new with stories that span the test of time. Discover Mae, the girl who codes and then meet the “Hello Girls” who were the backbone of telephone operations in the beginning of the 20th century. Reenact an ancient story, presented as a play and read about a play that goes wrong in many ways. The Ghost on the Moor comes to a spooky conclusion, and the story of Nodi and the Roman continues where we left off. As always, gorgeous illustrations, games, and poems keep readers engrossed.
