School Library Journal
Gr 5 Up-Two definitive guides, written with inexperienced youth in mind. However, the information is so complete that even an expert farmer might find these titles useful as a refresher course. Each book covers breeds, housing, economics, and maintenance and management. All scientific terms are defined in the glossary in addition to the text. The pages are divided into areas of text and definitions or other boxed information. Illustrations consist of black-and-white photos and pen-and-ink drawings. A list of helpful sources is included in each book. Definite purchases for areas in which there are active 4-Hers and FFA members.-Eldon Younce, Harper Elementary School, KS

    Great instructional guide for kids!!

    This book is a very easy read. It has all the important information the user will need to decide what breed of goat to purchase and how to care the animal. My 11 yr old son, who has trouble reading, did not have much trouble reading the book and understanding the concepts. As adult, I found it great to help me understand caring for goats as well.
