    Audiobook (Listening Library, Sept. 25, 2018)
    A classic from Eric Carle, creator of The Very Hungry Caterpillar! One day a tiny cricket is born and meets a big cricket who chirps his welcome. The tiny cricket tries to respond, but there is no sound. The quiet cricket then makes his way into the world, meeting one insect after another, each of whom greets the little cricket with a cheery hello - the hum of a bee, the whirr of a dragonfly, the whisper of a praying mantis. The cricket rubs his wings together each time, but nothing happens, not a sound. Until the day he meets another cricket, a female, and something different happens.... Complete with a gentle rhythmic text and a wonder-inducing surprise at the end, The Very Quiet Cricket remains an all-time favorite from one of the true masters of children's tales. Praise for The Very Quiet Cricket: "Typical of Carle's style, the language is simple, with rhythm, repetition, and alliteration to delight young listeners." (School Library Journal) "As usual, Carle's story is simple and satisfying." (Publishers Weekly) "Carle's signature style ensures that this is a visual standout, and storywise it's appealing, too....The spare text is structured by repetitive phrasing that will lend itself to read-aloud responses."

    Eric Carle

    Board book (Gardners Books, Sept. 1, 1997)
    A little cricket has lost his song - he rubs his wings together and nothing happens. He sets off to find his voice and meets all kinds of creatures who make all kinds of noises, but still he can make no sound at all. One day he meets a special friend, another cricket and this time, when he rubs his wings together, he makes 'the most beautiful sound you have ever heard'. The sound, produced by a hidden chip, reinforces the joyful conclusion to the cricket's dilemma.
