Summary

Chirrrp, chirrrp, chirrrp--thats the sound of crickets on a summer evening. A male cricket makes this sound by rubbing his legs against a bumpy vein on his wing. Find out more about crickets, including how they hear with their knees, in Melvin Berger and Megan Lloyd's stunningly illustrated introduction to the cricket. This nonfiction picture book is an excellent choice to share during homeschooling, in particular for children ages 4 to 6. It's a fun way to learn to read and as a supplement for activity books for children.

This is a Level 2 Let's-Read-and-Find-Out Science title, which means the book explores more challenging concepts for children in the primary grades and supports the Common Core Learning Standards, Next Generation Science Standards, and the Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math (STEM) standards. Let's-Read-and-Find-Out is the winner of the American Association for the Advancement of Science/Subaru Science Books & Films Prize for Outstanding Science Series.

Published Reviews
Booklist Review: "Gr. 2^-3, younger for reading aloud. This well-rounded introduction moves from crickets chirping on a summer evening to a look at the purpose of the chirping sound, who makes it, and how it is made; in fact, children will learn a great deal about the anatomy, life cycle, habits, and habitats of crickets from the text and the visually striking and educationally sound artwork."
