    I loved reading this book. It reminds me of the time I was young and growing up on a farm. I'm mailing this book to my 7 year old granddaughter, she will love to read it, too. Greta doesn't like it when her Dad teases her mom, but mom tells her he's just trying to get her goat. She is spending a month with her grandparents on their farm during her summer vacation and now grandpa is telling her they are going to get granny's goat and she doesn't want any part of teasing granny. But it turns out to be a real goat they are getting!

    Getting Granny's Goat is a charming story that will delight young and old readers alike. It plays on a misunderstanding that highlights Greta's strong moral character, while touching on the bonds between grandparents and their grandchildren. There are lessons in here that adults can share with young readers, making this book a learning experience and a pure pleasure. I look forward to other works from this author!

    Goodreads win. Will read and review once received!I enjoyed reading this book quite a lot. The author did an amazing job at showing tension, excitement and even family drama from a childs point of view. I think this was a sweet book that would be good for all families to read. The pictures were pretty. I definitely plan to keep my eye on this author. Also, I plan on donating this book to one of my local library's in hopes that others will read it.

    This was a goodreads-first reads win for me. Such a cute story! The author did a wonderful job describing the country and making us share in Greta's excitement over spending time at her Grandparent's farm. Grandpa's secret of "getting Granny's goat" was so sweet...it made me smile and think back to times spent with my own grandparents. I will definately share this book with my daughter and her friends (especially the one named Greta!)!

    I won this book on Goodreads. I read it first and enjoyed it but wasn't sure if my six year old granddaughter would think it was too long and not enough pictures.I read it to Anna, 6 and Sylvie,3 and it was a bit boring for Sylvie but Anna loved it. I think she really related to the little girl. It was a delightful book.

    I loved reading this story! Kathleen J. Kidder did a wonderful job creating elements of excitement, tension, family drama and insight all the while from a child's perspective. She skillfully and lovingly touched all the emotions a great children's story should reach. She gives "children" of all ages a glimpse back at childhood and helps us feel wonderful moments our little protagonist feels. For me, this is a must read for families and I look forward to giving copies of "Getting Granny's Goat" in both formats (e-book & print) to the children in my life. Thank you Ms. Kidder, please give us more!

    I won this book in a giveaway. I thought it was a very cute short story. I read the book myself and then read it a 2nd time to my daughter. It's a cute story and the perfect size for a bedtime read
