I wanted to like this more than I did. It was funny and had a cute goat concept, but it just didn't connect with me the way that I wanted it to. Young readers will enjoy the color changing goat and the repetitive actions though.

This series is adorable. Very simple yet easy to follow. This installment adds a fun holiday spin. The felt flaps feel nice to the touch, but I fear they may rip easily.
