Chester Cricket finds a picnic basket full of delicious things to eat, so he hops in for a quick meal - and then becomes trapped as a bag of roast beef sandwiches is set in on top of him! By the time he gets free, Chester discovers he is far away from his country home in Connecticut, and is lost, alone, and afraid amidst the hustle and bustle of a New York City subway station.

Our Interactive Study Guide will open with Adobe Acrobat Reader 9.0+. You may still print off the study guide just as before. But with the interactive files, students have the capability of entering their answers directly on the computer and saving their work in progress.
The E-Guide for The Cricket in Times Square is working fairly well. However, a more diversified study guide would be welcome. This one contains too many comprehension questions.
We are enjoying this guide very much. One of the things I like is that it does not have boring repetition with lots of fill in the blanks and closed ended question but instead requires the student to give thought to their answers.
My students love the study guide for "The Cricket in Times Square." Guides them through the different lovable character traits of the characters, discusses their qualities that make them real to the students and to the Bible. Love the questions that make them think!
This book study was wonderful. I like how it covered some science, Biblical, and, obviously, literature. My kids really enjoyed it as well.
