Praise

Praise for The Very Quiet Cricket:

“Typical of Carle’s style, the language is simple, with rhythm, repetition, and alliteration to delight young listeners. Painted collage illustrations are lavish and expressive.”–School Library Journal
 
“The text is skillfully shaped; the illustrations convey energy and immediacy.”–Horn Book

“As usual, Carle’s art is lovely and his 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.”–Booklist
