Calvin Can't Fly: The Story of a Bookworm Birdie By: Jennifer Berne Illustrated By: Keith Bendis
Calvin fell out of the nest onto a book. From this moment on Calvin loved to read. He read all the time. When his birdie cousins were learning how to be birds he was learning in the library. When everyone was learning to fly he was reading a book instead. Then the sad day came when he was to fly south for the winter. He realized he spent so much time reading that he never learned to do bird things, his cousins refused to leave him behind and tied him up and carried him. Along the way a huge storm was coming, Calvin knows it is something called a hurricane and safely gets his friends to a cave where they wait out a storm.
I loved this book. It shows that no matter what you love to do you need to learn the important things in life too. It also shows that learning from books is a good thing and you have to know about the world around you. I loved the illustrations and so did all the kiddos I have read the book too!!
I bought this from Scholastic.
