<em><strong>The Great Cricket Picket</strong></em> is a rhyming insect adventure featuring: a kicked cricket, a protest, snoring, and a cookie.
In this humorous story written by Nathan Tafoya and illustrated by Melissa Bastow, bugs join forces and stand up to a boy when he hurts one of their own. <em><strong>The Great Cricket Picket</strong></em> is also a great conversational starter for parents and educators looking to discuss bullying, tolerance, and consequences in general.

<strong>From the author: </strong> <em>I hope this book helps fight bullying, in its own, small way. I hope The Great Cricket Picket entertains children while teaching them to respect others & to be considerate. It is my hope that children exposed to this book grow up to make the world a better place, in some small part due to a story their parents read to them about bugs. I want that kind of future for my children. I want to be a part of the solution, because "any is too many."</em>
