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 loved the close-up illustration by Matt Davies of Nerdy Birdy's face when it finally realized how wrong it had been to put tweeting ahead of his friendship with vulture -- hilarious!
I also liked the repetition of the phrases "they are very different -- they are also best friends."

A really good message on the difference of online friends and real-life-friends. Very sweet.

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".
