The New York Times for Kids: Spring 2024 Edition immerses readers in the spectacle of the cicada emergence across 16 states, offering insight into this buzzing event. Late April and early May will see an extraordinary phenomenon as over a trillion bugs emerge from the ground. These insects will spend the next four to six weeks feeding on tree sap, singing melodious cicada songs, and seeking mates, creating a loud, messy, and unforgettable experience! This piece was complemented by quotes and a recipe from Cornti Borgerson, associate professor of Anthropology.
