More about Cricket Magazine: Cricket magazine deems itself “the magazine for smart, inquisitive kids.” Perhaps for good reason since Cricket has collected numerous literary awards throughout its 30-year history. Primarily geared toward readers ages 9 to 14, kids tend to read Cricket for its stories of fiction, fantasy, folk tales and poems. Most kids won’t have trouble relating to the cast of characters peppered throughout the margins of the pages, which, of course, are all bugs! Inside, readers will also find cool illustrations, fun cartoons, entertaining crossword puzzles, projects and recipes. What’s great for budding young writers is that Cricket magazine also sponsors story, poetry, art and photography contests, designed to encourage its young audience to express their creativity and talent.
