This is a funny little book. It reminds me of seeing rows of animals on trains. There is rhyming throughout which is great for helping to build phonemic awareness in young children. This would be a fun book to create a story mat or have children act out the book.

Cute adventure of a goat that got in trouble with his owner for eating his shirts. Fun song and rhyme that kids would love!

This goat just can't help himself from eating clothes!

This story is based off a song so it rhymes. It is humorous because the goat gets in trouble for eating clothes on the clothesline which he coughs up. He also gets in trouble for sitting on different animals on a train but he gives them the shirts that he coughed up and the animals are ok with that. They all eat together (except the goat) and mess up the shirts so they wash them. The goat is still hungry so he eats the shirts again. It's predictable but funny.

a goat likes to eat shirts but his owner doesn't want his shirts to be eaten so he send the goat away after he eats three. A train engineer takes the goat in where he gives each of the three shirts to other animals. These animals get the shirts dirty and they must be washed and hung on the line to dry. Who will get the shirts in the end? Lots of rhymes and texts in cute blocks. preschool.

This was one of our first library books. It's part of another set of sing-along books, but we don't have the recording for this one. The original version of this song is strange (Bill Grogan loves his goat so much that he beats him when he misbehaves and then ties him to the railroad tracks). In this story, the train picks him up and he meets several rude animals. Odd, but I like the illustrations in this series.

Bill Grogan's Goat was a predictable, but entertaining story. It starts with the well known story about Bill Grogan's goat eating the shirts and getting tied to the tracks, but it builds on and tells what to the goat once he stops the train. The pictures were colorful and went along well with the fun story.

This would be a really fun book to read with younger kids. It would make a good read-aloud book because it has predictable phrases and even has a rhythm to it. This would also be a good book for introducing rhyming.

I think this book would be a great book to use to get students engaged. It had humor, and there was even a song teachers could use along with the book. I would use this book especially with younger children.

This is a wonderful song book. It teaches about sharing and forgiveness through song.

Based on the song Bill Grogan's goat the story is kind of funny but not much else to it.

This book is a song-like style of writting. The children would enjoy the humor of the book.

A strange story about a goat that eats 3 red shirts, and passes them out to other animals, as apologies for being clumsy.

In this humorous song book filled with rhymes a silly goat runs away after eating three red shirts, makes some new friends and gives away the red shirts only to eat them up again on washing day.

Literary features: onomatopoeia, rhyme

The traditional song with merry pictures, makes Flannery laugh every time.

Wonderfully fun drawings support the lively rhythm of the song Bill Grogan's Goat. Pure fun to read!

LOVED IT! Short and super CUTE!!
