Cricket Magazine Group began offering top-quality children's literature over 35 years ago and now publishes a line of beautifully illustrated literary magazines for children of all ages: BABYBUG®, for children ages 6 months to 3 years; LADYBUG®, for ages 3 to 6; SPIDER®, for ages 6 to 9, and CRICKET®, for ages 9-14. The company also publishes a line of nonfiction magazines devoted to the sciences, arts, and humanities: CLICK®, for ages 3 to 7, ASK®, for ages 7 to 10, and MUSE®, for ages 10 and up. CICADA®, a challenging and entertaining literary magazine for teens and young adults ages 14 and up was added in 1998.
In 2008, Cricket Magazine Group launched ad-free Web sites for kids to correspond with each of its publications. Carefully designed to enhance the company's mission to nurture a love of reading and writing, stimulate a child’s imagination and intellect, and encourage creative expression, these Web sites offer a safe space for children to engage with interactive content that complements the top-quality literature and nonfiction found in our magazines.
Spidermagkids.com is the Web site for kids who subscribe to SPIDER®, an award-winning magazine for newly independent readers. Here kids can listen to lively audio recordings of poems and stories found in the magazine, browse and share reviews of classic and contemporary children's books, and discover a variety of creative projects to pursue offline as well as puzzles and games that will engage their language and logic skills. The site also offers kids the opportunity to enter art and writing contests and view work created by readers.
