Children's Literature
Goats have always been one of those animals that children and adults alike find fascinating. There are misconceptions about them, but the things that are true seem equally outlandish. For instance, they will eat almost anything, but they don't eat tin cans. Because they are curious creatures you can find them in many an interesting circumstance. Gentle and friendly in nature, goats are frequently included in children's petting zoos. This book, one in a series of "True Books" about farm animals, gives details that many children will find intriguing and educational. The large black text is easy to read visually but the vocabulary requires an older child or adult assist. Children do not seem to need clever titles to books when simply the topic grabs their interest. This book will do that and would be an asset in an elementary school library, for reference or just for fun. 2000, Grolier Publishing, $22.00. Ages 5 to 9. Reviewer: Kathleen Orosz
