Calvin, Look Out! {Book Review}

Calvin, Look Out!

Birds of a feather may flock together, but Calvin is not like the rest of his starling flock. It’s easy to see why: this bright birdie always has his break in a book. One day it becomes clear to Calvin that things look a little… well, unclear.

A nifty pair of eyeglasses brings the world back into focus, but now Calvin is the only bespectacled starling. After getting teased about his new glasses, he sets off into the woods and finds himself in trouble. Can this book-smart bird use what he’s learned in order to save himself?

Calvin, Look Out!: A Bookworm Birdie Gets Glasses

Calvin is a bookworm birdie who loves to curl up in his favourite corner of the library and enjoy a good book or two. The thing is recently he has found that he is finding the words a little blurry, the librarian suggested that maybe he needs some glasses to help him see better. After a visit to the opticians Calvin has a pair of spectacles to wear to help him see where he is going and read books. The problem is that Calvin is the only bird to have glasses and all his cousins laugh at him.

Boo Roo and Tigger Too’s thoughts…

This book helps tell the tale of a little bird who needs help of glasses to see the world clearer. How it feels when he is teased for wearing glasses, and how he helped others who also needed to wear glasses but never knew. I feel the book helps both children who need to where glasses themselves and also those who’s parents, siblings or friends where glasses.
