5.0 out of 5 stars I love this book and so do my two nieces (ages 5 and 6 & 3/4.) The adorable illustrations and the heartwarming story of Cecilia have transformed cicadas from a scary menace into an animal that you'd want to pal around with. It's sophisticated enough to be educational, but simple and clever enough to share with a child of any age. The fundamental lessons of the importance of patience and love really shine through. If you live in a place with cicadas, this book is a must, and if you don't, reading it may make you consider a move. I highly recommend this book for any child with a curiosity about the world. --Karima Hassan
5.0 stars out of 5 stars I absolutely love this book! I bought Cecily Cicada for my nephew Ben who is 1 1/2 and starting to discover the joys of bugs and everything of the like. He is mesmorized by the colorful illustrations and I really enjoy reading the story! The actual story is refreshingly unique, detailed and uses some great vocabulary, so for now Ben gets a kick out of the pictures and the name - he loves to try and say Cecily) and I'm sure he will grow into the depth of the story. I highly recommend this book for children of all ages! --Becky M. Gray

I was inspired to buy this book as a result of the recent emergence of the 17-yr cicadas where I live. After seeing them in my yard, and watching them hatch from their shells in their lovely brilliance, it is hard not to appreciate these critters as they follow their destiny.
This books celebrates the life cycle of the cicadas - and symbolically the cycle of life for every being. I highly recommend this book!!

Read it for story hour for 3-7 yr olds. They were mystified. It was scientific that pulled at the heart strings.Published on May 9, 2013 by Katie T.
