Sometimes, we’re stronger than we think we are. This edition of CRICKET Magazine is full of young characters pushing their own boundaries and learning just what they’re capable of. Meet a young boy who saves the day at his grandparents’ farm, an undercover king helping local merchants, or a girl who brings dragons back to her village. Meet Asef as he fasts for Ramadan for the first time, then try your hand at making a tasty and authentic recipe just like Asef’s mother! 


A delightful blend of poems, games, recipes, and cartoons sprinkled among the articles and stories will keep kids entertained from cover to cover. What could be sweeter than that?
