The Little Cricket's Song is a toddler's board book written by Joanne Barkan and illustrated by Claudine Gevry. This durable book encourages interactivity, is highly entertaining, and introduces children to the art of rhyme.
This board book is 14 pages in length. It is a board book so it can stand up to whatever your toddler puts it through. I'm not talking baby board book though. The Little Cricket's Song is a transitional book 8 1/2 inches x 9 1/4 inches in size.
While you read this delightful poem to your child you can encourage them to "sing" along with the crickets. The two crickets you see on the cover are click able and make noise. They can also be seen and played with at every flip of the page.
The poem is about a little cricket finding his voice and learning how to sing the cricket's song. Throughout the story other animals encourage the little cricket to sing more.
Your child will hear a rhyme throughout the poem a-a, b-b. The poem is very catchy and delightful to hear. All through you will find many opportunities for you child to click the crickets and "sing" along.
We have really enjoyed the Little Cricket's Song. I think you and your child will also.
