Beatrice's Goat
Beatrice's Goat by Page McBrier (History/Biography)
This is a story for young children about the success of a Ugandan child benefiting from the Heifer Project International. I chose this book because I went to grade school in Indianapolis with the author. I was pleased to find there was a nice afterword by Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton. The illustrations were made with much attention to detail. -- Added by Konsulentin on 01/21/2016
