*Notable Social Studies Trade Books for Young People  ―National Council for the Social Studies/Children's Book Council*

*Honor Book ―Society of School Librarians International*

How can reading a picture book in one country make a difference to a family in need living thousands of miles away? And what does a goat have to do with it, anyway? When Mrs. Rowell's class is inspired by a rainy-day book to reach out with helping hands, wonderful things happen. Not the least of these wonderful things is a combined, enthusiastic effort by the entire class to reach a common goal. In this true story readers will discover even the smallest good-will efforts are rewarded with positive results.

Humorous illustrations show the philanthropic process from inspiration through brainstorming to getting down to work, collecting funds and celebrating success. Give a Goat is a template for adults and children who want to work together to experience the satisfaction of giving to others and making a difference in the world. This book may inspire you, too. Making a change for the better is as easy as giving a goat!

Black Beauty, the model for Give A Goat is owned by a friend of the family.
