One day, Nerdy Birdy joins Tweetster, and the friend requests start flying in. Vulture watches as Nerdy Birdy gets swept up in his new friendships, but when she finally gets angry, Nerdy Birdy knows just what to do to make things right.

I’m an elementary tech teacher and I think this book is a great introduction or review of the difference between online only friends and in-person friends.

I thought it was a great read aloud for young kids about the importance of valuing real life relationships over online friends you may have never even met.

I also liked the repetition of the phrases "they are very different -- they are also best friends."

I picked up this book expecting to hate it's subject matter, but I actually found it to be a really cute book, with fun characters and framed in a helpful way to discuss the topic of screen time and social media.

In this age of electronic communication and more and more kids being glued to phone or tablets Reynolds has created an enjoyable and humorous cautionary tale of the value of social media in comparison to one on one interaction. As Nerdy Birdy says to he friend Vulture "one real live you is worth a thousand Tweetster friends".
