Beatrice’s Goat is a children’s book that was inspired by a young girl and her goat of the same name.  Beatrice and her Ugandan family were provided a goat by the nonprofit Heifer International in 1992.  Profits from the sale of the milk paid for young Beatrice’s schooling.

The story inspired a children’s book that a portion of the profits go to Heifer International so they can continue to supply more livestock.  So when you are thinking of a children’s book for your home, grandchildren or school why not pick up a copy of Beatrice’s Goat inorder for the circle to continue.    

People Magazine published an update on the very special Beatrice from the book.  Beatrice graduated from from Connecticut College and plans to go on for her Master’s.  Bravo Beatrice, Bravo.
