I read this book countless times as a child. I can remember getting ready for bed and waiting patiently for the sound of the cricket. The anticipation of seeing if the quiet cricket will make a noise captivates the students as they are engaged and listening for the cricket to chirp. Eric Carle's books are wonderful for sequencing lessons and this book does not disappoint. Students can share the order in which the animals tried to speak to the cricket and can even create their own book. Again, Carle uses exquisitely textured illustrations that bring life into the art. With illustrations mimicking finger paint, even young students are able to create mentor pieces of art.
