Lit Bite: Calpurnia Tate Girl Vet: Skunked!

May 7, 2023

In Calpurnia Tate, Girl Vet, Callie Vee, Travis, and Dr. Pritzker help animals big and small.

When soft-hearted Travis discovers an abandoned baby skunk, he can’t help but bring him home and take care of him. Stinky, as Travis names him, settles in pretty well. But when Travis discovers Stinky’s litter-mate, Winky, who is in need of some help, things get complicated around the Tate house. One skunk is a piece of cake; two is just asking for trouble. Will Travis and Callie be able to keep the critters away from Mother’s careful eyes―and nose?

With this Lit Bite, your child will learn about skunks, nature study, and animal science! There are so many fun rabbit trails you can take with this story as you read about Callie’s and her brother’s adventures in rescuing baby skunks. They’ll be having so much fun, they won’t even know they are learning!

This Lit Bite will take 2 weeks to complete (as written) and is perfect for children ages 5 – 8.

Every Lit Bite comes with:

  • a full reading schedule

  • discussion questions
  • copywork and dictation taken from the literature
