WildlyRead Thoughts: The original Calpurnia Tate was a Newbery Award-winning novel. The new Calpurnia Tate is a series of beginning chapter books that is perfect for the young reader who loves animals. Though the odds are stacked against her as a female in the early 1900s, Calpurnia is determined to become a vet. She is kind to those in need, she stands up to bullies, and she’s curious about the world around her. I wish I could have been friends with Calpurnia when I was younger! Age 7+
