Beatrice's Goat Ms. McBrier and Ms. Lohstoeter, the illustrator, talked with the children about their book Beatrice’s Goat, published by Antheneum. They showed slides of the trip they took to Africa to research the book. This is the story of a girl in western Uganda whose life is changed when her family is given a goat. The family becomes prosperous enough to be able to send her to school. The participants responded to students' questions.

The afterword by Hillary Rodham Clinton explains that the story is based on the experiences of a real Ugandan child whose life changed because of the humanitarian efforts of The Heifer Project International. close
