We really felt like it was Christmas when our Cricket Media package arrived. What a collection of stories, activities, magazines, and poetry, all with such colorful and exciting illustrations! We have slowly started to make our way through all of our samples. Sometimes we have bedtime stories. Sometimes, we just browse through the magazines to see what all there is to do. My daughter, who is almost five and is starting to use inventive spelling and reading looked at the magazine with the lollipop, and made up her own title: “How do you eat a lollipop?” I loved that!
Thank you to Sugar Mountain PR for our samples in exchange for this review. And here
