    I can t stand the sound of cricket s So at the start of the book when the cricket was quiet, I thought that was wonderful The sound machine in the book didn t work so I didn t get to hear that I love the art work It is fantastic I think the story is fun even if it is about a nasty cricket The nephew did have fun with this book He gave it 5 stars as well Eric is quite the artist.

    I read The Very Hungry Caterpillar by Eric Carle to my son when he was between the ages of 2 4 years old This book is no different in the fact it has depth, even a philosophical atmosphere and is relatable, it s especially very relatable to my son living with autism He could relate to the cricket struggling inside to socialize with others, wanting to say something in response, but no sound coming out, a silent outcry, an experience my son knows all too well But at the end his voice is heard I read The Very Hungry Caterpillar by Eric Carle to my son when he was between the ages of 2 4 years old This book is no different in the fact it has depth, even a philosophical atmosphere and is relatable, it s especially very relatable to my son living with autism He could relate to the cricket struggling inside to socialize with others, wanting to say something in response, but no sound coming out, a silent outcry, an experience my son knows all too well But at the end his voice is heard and there finally you can hear it not necessarily with your ears, but with your heart and right there is progress in humanity s resilience and effortlessness to connect Something we all can relate to

    Kids loved the ending, though this may be due to how repetitious it got there Perhaps this would be a good book to encourage the children to respond with Nothing Happened not a sound page after page after page.Also different voices for each of the insects might shake things up a bit.

    Like all of Eric Carle s books, the illustrations are immediately recognizable as his, while the text builds in the familiar, repetitive style that he often uses I m not sure if this one has a broader message that some of the others do i.e., The Ouchy Grouchy Ladybug, The Very Busy Spider but maybe I m missing something.

    I like Eric Carle So does Sigourney His colorful textured artwork paint and collage makes us both happy And the story of a cricket finding its chirp is cute But I found a couple of things annoying First, Carle or his publicist inflates the importance of his story In The Very Quiet Cricket Mr Carle chooses a lowly insect as the hero, but beyond the simple story of a cricket finding his voice, it is a story about love and survival of all living things crickets and humankind Real I like Eric Carle So does Sigourney His colorful textured artwork paint and collage makes us both happy And the story of a cricket finding its chirp is cute But I found a couple of things annoying First, Carle or his publicist inflates the importance of his story In The Very Quiet Cricket Mr Carle chooses a lowly insect as the hero, but beyond the simple story of a cricket finding his voice, it is a story about love and survival of all living things crickets and humankind Really Survival of all beings Not so much It s about a cricket longing to exchange plessantries with a diversity of other insects, but is only able to get his chirp on when another cricket crosses his path What is this story trying to say anyway Should we seek meaningful relationships only with people beings exactly like us In no way do I believe Carle s saying By all means, discriminate against others But the message is a bit confusing.Carle s closing remarks are confusing as well I hope you have enjoyed this story Close the book now and your cricket s chirp will have a long life Apparently, one version of The Very Quiet Cricket includes a recorded version of a cricket s chirp triggered by the turning of the final page The version we read included no such recording, meaning Carle s closing statement made no sense to us.In the end, Sigourney thought the drawings were pretty and enjoyed pointing at the insects I found the book to be fair to middling
