The cricket wanted to say hello. So he rubbed his wings together. Nothing happened! Not a sound!

It's OK, little cricket! Nothing wrong with being an introvert. ( )

As always, this Eric Carle story did not disappoint. It tells the cute story of a little cricket finding his "chirp". The other characters in the story that the cricket encounters are other bugs going about their daily business. However, he is unable to communicate with them due his rubbing legs/wings not allowing him to make a sound yet. He continues further, however, meeting all new kinds of bugs. At the very end, he was able to make a sound, his chirp when he meets another girl cricket. ( )

I really liked this book, it's cute and informative. The book follows Eric Carle's normal style, which is books about animals. In most of his books he goes through the life stages of different types of animals, just like his other book The Very Hungry Caterpillar. These books are colorful, fun to read, and they encourage kids to learn more about different species of animals. ( )

"The Very Quiet Cricket" is about a baby cricket that is born mute. He meets other insects that greet them in their own special way, yet the cricket cannot reply. Disability, acceptance, diversity
