Titles in the Blastoff! Readers series are slotted into one of three levels, each representing a degree of literacy competence. This Level 1 entry in the series' new Farm Animals subset is geared toward the newest readers. In one or two sentences, printed in large type on each spread, the very basic words introduce facts about goats, and the attention-grabbing color photos (including a shot of goats climbing a tree) reinforce the text's meaning. Despite the book's brief length, it includes a five-word glossary, a table of contents, resources lists, and an index, so kids will see the basic components of a standard nonfiction title. A solid choice for emerging readers.
