That podcast is called Mister Cricket’s Fire Fables, and you can learn more about it below and listen to it wherever you get your podcasts. With each episode, we also provide a parent guide with questions for your kids, Bible verses to read with them, and a key virtue to talk about with them that is at the center of the episode.
MISTER CRICKET’S FIRE FABLES
Take a listen to Mister Cricket’s Fire Fables today!
Conceived for kids 6-12, (but loved by parents everywhere), Mister Cricket’s Fire-Fables are tales that teach the common courtesies of life through humor and intrigue. Set in a fictional woods known as, “Suavity Bosk”, each fable begins with a question, and each question is answered by John Cricket––the only human being in the bosk. Of course, Cricket’s answers are always a mixture of fact and fiction, but through this embroidered truth, the characters in Mister Cricket’s Fire-Fables gain wisdom, make better choices, treat others as they should be treated, and, in general, lead more fulfilling lives. If you’re looking for family entertainment wrapped in sound advice, Mister Cricket’s Fire-Fables are something you and your children can warm up to.
Now is the perfect time to sit down with your kiddos and explore some of these wonderful podcasts. Listen with them, explore these worlds with them, and answer their questions!
And we have a few fun, free resources for you in this crazy time! There is a Conversation Starter Pack to explore with your kids, as well as a Mister Cricket’s Coloring Book that they can color in as you listen to the fables.
