Format: Board book
The Very Quiet Cricket is one of a number of books by the illustrator Eric Call, which tells the tale of growth and passage of time in the life of an insect, other books include, The Very Hungry Caterpillar and The Very Lonely Firefly. Like the other books The Very Quiet Cricket is beautifully illustrated throughout, and keeps the surprise until the very end, when we turn the final page to hear the soft chirp of the cricket.The story is held together by the employment of the same pattern throughout, greeting from another insect in his own manner, and then the cricket's desire and failure to return a reply. This scheme allows the child to predict the story and join in, and as such feel an active part in the telling of the tale. The child can also see the growth of the cricket throughout the story, from the tiny hatchling at sunrise to the full-grown cricket in the moonlight, with each page we can see him grow larger on the page with the passage of time.
It is certainly a book which is appealing enough to be read over and over again, and indeed with familiarity with the story will possibly make it even more attractive, particularly anticipating the cricket's chirp at the end.

The story is wonderful. I read it to my reception class regularly. However two recent purchases had a problem with the sound. This is crucial to the effect if this story. It worked intermittently and both had to be returned.

This book is very good as it has the sound effect to which children in the early years respond very well. It captures their attention as they have to be very quiet to listen to the sound of the cricket.

It is great book. She loved it!

The sound effect on the last page really enhances the story. I love this story anyway and it's really easy for little hands to hold.

This had gone down very well with our grandchildren, who love the story and the surprise of the noise at the end. Eric Carle's books are favourites here.
