Calpurnia Tate, Girl Vet

Jacqueline Kelly introduced younger readers to Calpurnia Tate, Girl Vet, in Newbery Honor-winner The Evolution of Calpurnia Tate. Delightfully illustrated, this historically-set chapter book series brings turn-of-the-twentieth-century Texas to life as Callie and her family explore the natural world around them, inspiring the eleven-year-old girl to learn about and help the wildlife right in her own backyard.

“This engaging introductory chapter book contains the added benefit of introducing readers to science and nature terminology as well as a bit of Texas history…Entertaining, humorous, and informative.”—School Library Journal (starred review on Skunked!: Calpurnia Tate, Girl Vet)
