The Goat Lady Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Two children and their mother, new to the neighborhood, befriend Noelie Houle, an elderly lady who raises goats. Her other neighbors bemoan "The Goat Lady's" rundown house and barnyard animals, but the children see how she cares for her goats, they listen to her stories, and they come to love her. For many years Noelie provided goat's milk for people who needed it and sent her extra goat kids to poor people in poor countries through The Heifer Project. The children's mother paints a series of paintings of "The Goat Lady," and her art show at the local town hall helps the rest of the community se Noelie's kindness and courage.

Synopsis:

Teachers' Choices, 2005 - International Reading Association ASPCA Henry Bergh Children's Book Award, 2004, Humane Heroes "THE GOAT LADY tells the true story of a loving, kind, and generous woman who not only helped her neighbors, but also Heifer International. By giving us her extra baby goats, she helped us 'pass on the gift' to people in need. Heifer International has helped millions of people in over 70 countries over the years thanks to people like the Goat Lady who found a way to help those less fortunate than herself." -Jim De Vries, Heifer International
