Description

Read and find out about crickets in this colorfully illustrated nonfiction picture book.

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 is a clear and appealing science book for early elementary age kids, both at home and in the classroom. It's a Level 2 Let's-Read-and-Find-Out, which means the book explores more challenging concepts for children in the primary grades. The 100+ titles in this leading nonfiction series are:
