Letter by letter, meet cart-pulling goats; clothes-munching goats; head-butting, hill-climbing, tail-wagging goats! Cats, chicks, dogs, and bunnies play along with these friendly goats, joining in the fun. From A is for Apple to Z is for Zoe, these rascally animals just won’t stop until they’ve romped through the whole alphabet. Patricia Polacco, beloved author and proud owner and friend of many goats, has created another wonderful book to be treasured by all. (Amazon Summary, 3 and up)

Patricia Polacco, whose picture-books are usually quite text-heavy - in my library, they are mostly shelved in the special "Picture Plus" section, reserved for longer and more challenging picture-books - offers a far simpler "narrative" in G Is for Goat, a rhyming alphabet book which features one of the author's favorite kind of creatures. Here we have goats cavorting with children, as kittens, rabbits and ducks look on, or snacking on everything from oats to dresses. The artwork, done in pencil and watercolor, is full of movement and color, and the text, though minimal, is engaging.

Polacco clearly knows her caprine friends, and her affection for them shines through on every page of this book! I was surprised to find myself enjoying G Is for Goat as much as I did, as I'm not usually much of an alphabet book devotee. As expected, there isn't much of a "story" here, but the text reads well, and I imagine that children will find it entertaining, especially in conjunction with the humorous illustrations. Recommended to any young reader who likes goats, or to anyone in the market for good alphabet books! ( )
