Cricket Magazine Group began offering top-quality children's literature more than 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 to 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.
Clickmagkids.com is the Web site for kids who subscribe to CLICK®, an award-winning magazine for curious young children. Our site features fun and creative projects to print and pursue offline, audio recordings of stories featured in the magazine, recommendations for books about each issue’s theme, and games that will engage children’s growing logic skills. Children can also see their artwork and photos featured in “Your Turn” or write to Click the mouse, a beloved character from the magazine. With an emphasis on inspiring a child’s imagination, our site aims to enhance the content of our print magazine.
