Call Me Calvin
Written by Mary Vander Plas
Illustrated by André Ceolin
From Albert Whitman & Company
Calvin’s dad has always called him “Little Man,” but Calvin realizes he isn’t done being a kid.
Ever since Calvin was born, he’s been Dad’s “Little Man.” At first Calvin liked the special nickname the two of them shared. But now that he’s getting older, Calvin doesn’t feel big and strong like Dad. One afternoon playing in the yard, Calvin discovers that maybe that’s okay. He’s Calvin, and that’s exactly who he should be.
“A touching read that will speak to all little ones longing to be big.”―Kirkus Reviews
