The Goat With Many Coats by Leanne Lauricella

- Why Is A Goat Wearing a Coat? -

When a woman adopts a little-orphaned goat that weighs only one pound, she soon realizes that he's so tiny that his coat isn't thick enough to keep him warm. What to Do? Why give him a coat to wear, of course. As soon as his coat is zipped and buttoned he begins to act warmer and stronger. Little Prospect (the goat's name) starts wearing lots of different coats and even a cape.

His new mom begins taking pictures of him and sharing them on the Internet. Soon Prospect becomes a star and begins receiving coats from nice people all over the world!

But will Prospect be able to fit in with the goats that live outside when he gets older?

My Thoughts

What Concerned Me: Nothing

What I Liked Most:  In the back of the book, there are a few photos of the real Prospect and his coats. When Leanne Lauricella, the author of the book, started posting pictures of Prospect on Instagram, people all over the world started sending little coats to him. Leanne is often called "Goat Mama" since she rescues baby goats and runs a farm called Goats of Anarchy in New Jersey, where she cares for more than 50 goats.

This is a good story to open discussions about caring for animals and animal rescue.
