Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0884483010, Hardcover)Can reading a picture book in class end up making a difference to a family that lives on a different continent? And what does a goat have to do with it?
Some people think philanthropy is only for big foundations with lots of money, but that's only one part of the picture. In this true story, readers will discover what is possible when a class works together on a small, but successful project. Humorous illustrations show the process of identifying a charity and fundraising. Give a Goat is a useful template both for those who work with children and want them to experience the satisfaction of giving to others, and for kids who are looking for ways to make a difference.
