#63 - Cricket in Times Square

by George Selden

My son and I recently joined a local book club for homsschooled children, and this was the first book we read for the group. I’d read it years ago, of course, and had fond memories of it – but I found that I really didn’t remember anything about the story, other than that I liked it. It’s a very sweet story about a cricket from Connecticut who accidentally ends up in the subway station at Times Square. While there, he makes some friends, and discovers that he has an amazing talent. It’s a lovely story (and I got all sniffly at the end, even though it’s not really sad). My son enjoyed it – and we had fun at the discussion group yesterday, too. 9/10
