G Is for Goat

Patricia Polacco. Philomel Books, $16.99 (32pp) ISBN 978-0-399-24018-8

Patricia Polacco celebrates goats and their antics in G Is for Goat. In a rhyming text, the artist's signature babushka-clad girls cope with nannies and kids: ""P is for Push,/ when goats just won't go./ Q is for Quit,/ when goats just say no."" The pencil-and-watercolor illustrations depict a busy barnyard indeed.
