this book is about caitlin and how she is always getting into trouble. she tries to help out, but she always seems to mess everything up. first, she tries to get goat to mow grass and then she loses a very important project, she even messes up all of her mother's hard work. can caitlin ever make anything right?

this book shows that even if you try, you might still fail, but if you continue trying, something good is bound to happen.

This is a great book to teach children about continuing to do your best to help others. We can find great happiness as we do good to others, and should never give up on that. I highly recommend this book to all 8-12 year old children.

My parents were born just before the start of the twentieth century; my youngest grandchild arrived in this century's final decade. The years in between have been the most dynamic in the
