|About the Book|
OK, Im a sucker for any book featuring a character who is as much of a bookworm as I am. And Calvin sure is a bookworm (although as a bird, being called a worm is not a good thing!)This one is a cute story about reading and the advantages of reading because Calvin gets a chance to show off his book smarts. But it also is a bit jumbled in the story. It was almost like the author wasnt quite sure what kind of book to write. Should it be a book about promoting the value of reading? Or a book about how not being social and learning new skills can be bad? Or can it really be both? It tries to be a bit of both and doesnt really pull it off. In the end I felt like there were some mixed messages-read all the time because its good for you, but yet dont read all the time. And if you do read all the time, dont worry, youll be able to do anything you want because you read about.A cute story and an OK book on reading and books, but not one of the best.
