Sale price$14.99
From bestselling author and illustrator Eric Carle, the creator of The Very Hungry Caterpillar, comes another classic tale about one very quiet cricket. A perfect gift to share with the child or grandchild in your life. Now in a bilingual board book!

Del autor e ilustrador superventas Eric Carle, creador de La oruga muy hambrienta, llega este cuento clásico sobre un grillo silencioso. El regalo perfecto para hijos y nietos.

One day a tiny cricket is born and meets a big cricket who chirps his welcome. The tiny cricket tries to respond, but there is no sound. The quiet cricket then makes his way into the world, meeting one insect after another, each of whom greets the little cricket with a cheery hello--the hum of a bee, the whirr of a dragonfly, the whisper of a praying mantis. The cricket rubs his wings together each time, but nothing happens, not a sound. Until the day he meets another cricket, a female, and something different happens . . .

As children turn the page on this wonderful moment, they are greeted with a surprise--an actual chirp!

Full of Eric Carle's gorgeous and lush collage art, a gentle rhythmic text for read-alouds, and a wonder-inducing surprise at the end, The Very Quiet Cricket remains an all-time favorite from one of the true masters of picture-book making.

Un día, un diminuto grillo sale del huevo y se encuentra con un grillo grande que le da la bienvenida con un chirrido. El pequeño grillo trata de responder, pero no le sale ningún sonido. El grillo silencioso comienza así a explorar el mundo, y conoce una serie de insectos que lo saludan con su alegre canto: el zumbido de una abeja, el aleteo de una libélula, el susurro de una mantis religiosa. Cada vez, el grillo frota sus alas, pero no sale ni el más mínimo sonido. Hasta que un día, se encuentra con otro grillo, una hembra, y sucede algo diferente...

Y en este momento maravilloso, cuando el pequeño lector pasa la página, lo recibe una sorpresa: un chirrido de verdad!

Con el hermoso y exuberante arte en collage de Eric Carle, un texto rítmico y suave, perfecto para leer en voz alta, y una asombrosa sorpresa al final, El grillo silencioso continúa siendo una de las más favoritas creaciones de este verdadero maestro de los álbumes ilustrados.

Se pueden reemplazar las baterías. Por favor usar dos baterías de botón L1131 de 1.5 voltios.
