Kid Got Your Goat?

by Hope L


This summer, the kids are out of school and underfoot at home. May I suggest Benjamin, the pygmy goat, as a babysitter with the best kick around? Take a look at this video about Benji.

Now, unfortunately, the little guy does live overseas and is currently doing time in a field in Yorkshire, so the next best thing for the kids to do this summer is to visit DCPL–because Every Hero Has a Story, this summer’s Vacation Reading Program, is fully underway  (as is Unmask! for teens and Escape the Ordinary, the Vacation Reading Program for those old goats).

Benji has given us his summer reading picks, which are available at DCPL:

The Three Billy Goats Gruff, retold and illustrated by Janet Stevens, and The Trees of the Dancing Goats by Patricia Polacco.

For adults, Benji recommends The Complete Idiot’s Guide to Self-Sufficient Living by Jerome D. Belanger.

DCPL’s Vacation Reading Program runs through July 31.

My favorite goat story is Gregory, the Terrible Eater by Mitchell Sharmat. It’s also one of my favorite Reading Rainbow episodes.
