  • This is the third book in the Calpurnia Tate Girl Vet series. This book is written for ages seven through twelve. Callie and Granddaddy do a little boat exploring on the San Marcos River and find some interesting items. They spot an owl in the water and use a net to get it out. This is where the mystery comes in. Enjoyable reading with nice illustrations. I received this book compliments of Giveaways for an honest review.


  • This speaks to my inner child who loves nature, who has a natural curiosity about the world around her, who has a scientific mind that needs to know more and to find answers to WHYs and HOWs, and has a compassion for little critters needing help. Thumbs up.


  • Another great transitional novel in the Calpurnia Tate series. In this book, Calpurnia rehabilitates an owl. While I like the series and enjoy the Girl Vet subsidies for young readers, I hope for another longer Calpurnia novel in the future.


  • Loving this series, and Callie is such a super role model. I highly recommend these books for new readers ready to take on a slight challenge.I missed Travis in this one, though!


  • As I’ve been making my way through these chapter books based on The Evolution of Calpurnia Tate but intended for a younger audience, I’ve been impressed by the sureness with which the author depicts rural Texas in the early 1900s. Life was very different then, of course, and the roles of females were far more restricted than they are today. In this third installment featuring Calpurnia, who dreams of becoming a veterinarian, she and her beloved grandfather find an owl in the river while they [...]


  • Calpurnia Tate and her grandfather are looking for dinosaur bones. While rowing on the river, suddenly an owl drops into the water right in front of them. Owls don’t swim or dive for their food, so this is strange. Rescuing the owl in a butterfly net, they take the sopping bird to the vet. Nothing seems physically wrong with it, so Calpurnia takes it home for a few days to make it’s well before releasing it, but what caused the owl to fall from the sky in the first place? Book 3 in the Calpu [...]


  • What a great little chapter book! If I was still teaching, this would neatly tie science, language arts, geography, and history all together in an easy to read, fascinating book. Calpurnia Tate is a likable, lively main character and it was a pleasure to read and review this giveaway! (And now I'll send it on to one of my teacher friends.)
