Goats for Christmas: Calpurnia Tate, Girl Vet
Author: Jacqueline Kelly; illustrated by Jennifer L. Meyer
Featuring the charming characters from Jacqueline Kelly's Newbery Honor Book The Evolution of Calpurnia Tate, this exciting chapter book series introduces young readers to Callie Vee and the rough-and-tumble world of turn-of-the-century Texas. With illustrations by Jennifer L. Meyer, Goats for Christmas is a holiday story you won't want to miss!
Callie and Travis need sheep for the town Christmas pageant. Travis is playing the shepherd in the Nativity scene, and what's a shepherd without his flock? Unfortunately, Fentress is low on sheep—but not on goats.
When Callie and Travis decide to borrow two goats from their neighbor, they don't know what they're in for. As it turns out, the main trouble with goats is that they'll eat just about anything. This will be one Christmas pageant Fentress won't forget!
