Goat Books

We planned Goat Day at our local library for the K-2 after-school program. The kids learned about different kinds of goats, goat behavior, and what goats eat.  After listening to Gregory, the Terrible Eater, they got to taste goat cheese, draw about what they like for dinner, and snuggle our baby goat. I think Pinecone recognized they were little ones like her and she wasn’t nervous at all.

There are some wonderful books for extended learning about goats, beyond the typical goat care references.  Pat Coleby’s Natural Goat Care  and Dairy Goat Judging Techniques by Harvey Considine are two of the best I have read so far.

And there are some lovely books written for children that adults enjoy too.
