If you love reading books aloud and doing all the voices, you shouldn't miss The Cricket in Times Square. A beautiful and hilarious story about friendship, loyalty, and music appreciation, it tells of a cricket from Connecticut who gets caught in a picnic basket and carried all the way to the subway station in Times Square. He's found by a young Italian boy named Mario whose family has a newsstand. He also makes friends with a mouse and a cat in the station. A whole series of disasters and amusing anecdotes follows. Even though it's a book for kids, it has a lot of insights into human nature.
