The year: 1899. The subject: Calpurnia Virginia Tate, or Callie V as
she is known to friends and family.
Callie isn't like other girls her age living in Texas. She's not
interested in dolls, teas, dresses or anything girly for that matter.
What she does love is science, which is something of an oddity for a
girl in 1899.
Callie has no one to share her love of science with as her mom, dad and
four brothers all want her to be like all the other girls. After a
chance encounter, she discovers that her grandfather is a "naturalist"
or as we call them today, scientist. This man, who she was always
afraid of before, begins her true education. They have daily adventures
and Callie has assignments she has to complete for her grandfather.
This story is a wonderful, classic tale for girls of all ages which
reminds us of how important it is to pursue what you love, no matter
what anyone says

Summer 2009 Kids' List

“Intrigued by the different grasshoppers in her backyard, 11-year-old Calpurnia Virginia Tate finds herself suddenly enthralled by the natural world -- a fascination that unexpectedly leads to a new bond with her famously reclusive grandfather. Voracious in her newfound love of science, Callie launches herself on a summer of exploration, which leads to many new discoveries, not least of which is what it means to be a girl in love with science in Texas in 1899.”
