The Very Quiet Cricket (The Very Hungry Caterpillar & Other Stories)


The Very Quiet Cricket One warm day from a tiny egg a little cricket was born. WELCOME! Chirped a big cricket rubbing his wings together. The little cricket wanted to answer so he rubbed his wings together. But nothing happened. Not a sound. GOOD MORNING! Whizzed a locust spinning through the air. The little cricket wanted to answer so he rubbed his wings together. But nothing happened. Not a sound. HELLO! Whispered a praying mantis, scraping its huge front legs together. The little cricket wanted to answer, so he rubbed his wings together. But nothing happened. Not a sound. GOOD DAY! Crunched a worm, munching its way out of an apple. The little cricket wanted to answer, so he rubbed his wings together. But nothing happened. Not a sound. HI! Bubbled a spittblebug, slurping in a sea of froth. The little cricket wanted to answer, so he rubbed his wings together. But nothing happened. Not a sound. GOOD AFTERNOON! Screeched a cicada, clinging to a branch of a tree. The little cricket wanted to answer, so he rubbed his wings together. But nothing happened. Not a sound. HOW ARE YOU! Hummed a bumble-bee flying from flower to flower. The little cricket wanted to answer, so he rubbed his wings together. But nothing happened. Not a sound. GOOD EVENING! Whirred a dragonfly, gliding about the water. The little cricket wanted to answer, so he rubbed his wings together. But nothing happened. Not a sound. GOOD NIGHT! Buzzed the mosquitoes, dancing among the stars. The little cricket wanted to answer, so he rubbed his wings together. But nothing happened. Not a sound. A luna moth sailed quietly through the night. And the cricket enjoyed the stillness. As the luna moth disappeared silently into the distance, the cricket saw another cricket. She, too, was a very quiet cricket. Then he rubbed his wings together one more time. And this time… …he chirped the most beautiful sound that she had ever heard.

    This book site “fetching lobon only” (Google it) is simply remarkable since it is not only user-friendly but also an excellent service provider of numerous reading materials like books and documents. It has been of big help as well and I suggest it. If you like to read than this is the site for you. I have discovered everything I have looked for.

    I think that, of the 5 stories from the "The Very Hungry Caterpillar And Other Stories" omnibus, this story is my favourite. I love how the narrator and the animation make the 'chorus' more despondent each time, and the part with the moth is very well done

    Most of Eric Carle's books have hidden educational messages.

    Like in this story/cartoon:
    The many different ways of saying "Hello"
    And the many kinds of bugs and gastropods (the worm) found in one's backyard.

    One of my fav books when I was little. I remember looking for luna moths and spittle bugs. They did a great job animating the artwork! Looking at it now, the story reminds me of social anxiety struggles. Little cricket could sing when he was ready and around the right people. Hope i can make a good childrens book someday

    Please make a sequel collection with five more Eric Carle stories. It would be greatly appreciated by the millions of fans who enjoy these. Also, if you do make a sequel collection with five more stories from the same author, release it on DVD and on YouTube both at once.

    6:30–7:05 In this story Eric Carle got it right that only male crickets chirp. But he forgot two things about females…
    1. Females are bigger then males.
    2. Females have egg tubes at the end of their abdomens.

    Cicadas are LOUD. good thing They're only active during the day 🙂 Cool looking creatures for sure. They molt and leave the old exo-skeleton still clinging to the trees. Like little monotone carbon copy ornaments, it's awesome!

    “Hello…” whispered a Praying Mantis, right before he was devoured by his mate.

    The cricket, scarred by he had just witnessed, never spoke again.
