This story is told by the goat, Geraldine, whose wool is shorn and use by Glenmae, her owner, to be weaved into a rug. The book is charming with illustrations that will delight children with their humor. The palette is limited. The illustrator repeats the same tone and color throughout the story. In fact they are the colors that Glenmae used to create the rug. Children enjoy the humor of the story. The illustrations are funny and the book is not too wordy for kids. Teaching ideas include: economics. natural, capital, and human resources.

A book of outstanding quality that depicts a Navajo way of life that is becoming extinct in many areas. A must read if you are acquainted with the Navajo culture or are curious about it.

This book is wonderful for children from age 1 to 99. The Goat in the Rug is a cute little story about a goat and her owner making a rug. Navajo children can relate to this.
