A young cricket heals his nation, restoring vitality to the land and her creatures. The solution? Crickets chirping simultaneously while witnessing a miraculous event restore the nation to its previous glory. "How the Ariana Crickets Got Their Chirp Back" is an allegory about bringing healing to Afghanistan. This clever story with wondrous illustrations by Sally Kat features science, architecture, topography, agriculture, history, at-risk historic monuments and sites, family, love, adventure, working with others for common good, indigenous animals, a beloved national sport, societal challenges, and Afghanistan's beauty.
