I enjoyed this story very much The Girl Vet series seems well suited to readers about 3rd grade The books are relatively short so they are manageable for early readers Although some editorial advertising suggests this is is the 4th book in a series that began with The Evolution of Calpurnia Tate and The Curious World of Calpurnia Tate, those books are much complex suited to say 5th graders than the Girl Vet books so I rather think of the Girl Vet series as a separate series.In Counting Sheep, [...]

This beginning chapter book with its beautiful black and white illustrations is a great starting point for second graders and up to explore a different time period the early 20th century as well as the art of being a veterinarian, a very popular occupation at this age The main character, Calpurnia Tate, is a fabulous leading lady who isn t ladylike at all, although she has to wear dresses and is expected to follow the social norms of the times The amount of science and animal husbandry present m [...]
If you enjoyed earlier stories of Callie, you ll enjoy this, but it is formatted like a beginning chapter book That said, I don t think this will fit well with beginning chapter books It is short, but the reading level is well beyond beginning chapter book readers I think this book would be a good fit for a younger reader who reads at a higher level but does not have the stamina for full novels I received a free review copy of this book from the publisher through my district library services
My 8 year old and I loved this second installment in the Calpurnia Tate Girl Vet series It was like James Herriot for very early readers If anyone actually pays attention to the date started note here took us several months only because a toddler sibling stole and lost our copy, not for any lack of engagement
Great historical fiction for the 2nd to 4th grade set Calpurnia is a curious girl in a time that it wasn t ladylike to be scientific Her sneaky learning pays off when her mother s prize sheep gives birth and needs some assistance I was surprised and pleased that the author went into such depth about the manner of the birth Science for the win
Great story for young readers I really enjoyed this interesting book s a wonderful book for girls As a grandmother, I especially loved reading about the relationship between Callie and her Granddaddy The book also has beautiful illustrations.I received this complimentary book through and I m so glad I did
I found this in the new books and scooped it up, not realizing that it s the second book in the illustrated early chapter book series I lov Calpurnia, and am excited for even younger readers to get to know her.
I m a huge fan of the Calpurnia Tate books, but for the sake of our younger readers I m so pleased that this companion series exists Fantastic for early readers who love animals, history and science.
I just love the voice of this narrative and I can t leave the wonderful Calpurnia Tate books alone Great transitional fiction.
Glad Calpurnia is being introduced to younger readers in these easy to read volumes but I miss the depth and insight presented in the first two books.
Just as good and cute as the first one Can t wait for the next one.
a cute little middle grade chapter book about a girl vet.
Another sweet tale about Calpurnia Tate It s like reading one chapter one the chapter books Hopefully there is coming Jacqueline Kelly
The character is great I like how she loves animals
This was okay My little sister enjoyed it then I did but maybe I ll reread it again in a few months after I get through the giant stack that s in the corner of my room.
I just love Calpurnia
One hour read aloud or good second third grade reader.
Two cute stories about Calpurnia.
I received this book from a giveaway The Evolution of Calpurnia Tate and The Curious World of Calpurnia Tate are some of my favorite books of all time I am constantly craving for some time with one of my favorite characters This book completely satisfied that longing Originally, I thought this series was just a childrens picture book without a substantial storyline However, it is an early reader story with a plot and minimal pictures The story reunites us with Calpurnia, her Grandfather, Travis [...]
I won this book as a Good Reads First Read I enjoyed the story very much and look forward to sharing it with children in the neighborhood.
