In this installment in the Spanish language Animales de la granja series (8 titles), beginning readers will learn fun facts about goats. Each spread includes a labeled photo introducing goat body parts, diet, and behaviors, as well as differences between goat bucks and kids, paired with simple sentences of only a few words each. The full-color, high-resolution photos appealingly depict not only the animals’ environments but also their charm and playfulness—the baby goats leaping are particularly cute! Clearly written sentences, crisp layouts, and a breezy introduction to nonfiction features, such as a glossary, index, and table of contents, make this book particularly useful to kids new to the format. Reflective questions at the beginning of the book can help guide little ones in their reading, and further learning resources close out this welcoming title.
