In Billy's Goat, Cynthia Bend carries us into a world that many of us may remember from childhood afternoons lost in solitary reading or dreaming. There is time in this book for children to wander, for them to come to understand moral decisions, the natural world and its interconnectedness, and the ideas of loyalty and faithfulness. In Bend's book we are transported back to a different time in American history and given a glimpse of a different way to live our lives. She is faithful to her memories and her visions, and offers them to us with respect and love for her characters.
The book includes a full-color fold-out map of the farming community where the story takes place.

In this remarkable tale Bend's words paint a picture of the everyday surroundings of farm life in the 1950s. Bill's desire to gain his father's approval leads to conflicting choices that young readers can identify with as they struggle for independence. --Adrianne Lemberg, Wisconsion reading specialist
