Genre: modern fantasy
It is a great example of fantasy because it would not be possible for animals to think, talk, and feel human emotions in the real world. Even though these aspects of the story cannot be true, children can still relate to the feelings that the animals have about being sad when something is lost and rejoicing when it returns again. In addition, the context of the story is believable, as farms, orchards, and storms all exist in the real world. I bet lower elementary students would enjoy it a lot! ( )

Summary:
It's about a little ordinary goat lives in a farm but loves to eat apples and cherries in the orchard sometimes. Every time after it eating the fruits, it would send a shower of pits and seeds over the hedge. Once a storm toppled every single tree and the orchard that little apple goat loved so much was gone. All the animals were very sad and the farmer came to take the logs away. After the winter, the spring came and one day the little apple goat found there were some bright and flowery peeking over the hedge and one day, the blossoms were gone and new fruit hung from the branches. All the animals were very happy to have a new orchard but only did the little apple goat knew how it came.

Genre:
It is a animal fantasy since the story happened in a non-realistic animal world created by the author. All the animals in this world had their own thoughts and acted like human.

Critiques:
1. The media of this book are water color and ink. All the images are cute animals and other creatures in the nature.
2. The language in this book is clear and easy to understand by students aged from 3~6.
3. The ending of this book is out of expectation which may cheer students a lot.

Comments on use:

2. The teacher can ask student why the new orchard comes in the new autumn. ( )

This is about a little goat who loves to eat the apples and pears and cherries from the farmers orchard. But one day a wind comes and all the fruit is gone. After this the seasons begin to change, until a happy little surprise happens.
I would categorize this story as a fantastical book as it is from the perspective of a goat, and it is done believably.

This book focused on a goat who love fruit, especially apples. One day there was a big storm that knocked all the apple trees down that the goat ate from. The goat was sad for a while but by the time autumn came around the farmer had planted new apple trees and all the farm animals were happy again. This book is a good fantasy because it makes connections to human feelings to animals and the seasons we experience in our lives. ( )

This is a book about a goat who loves to eat fruit from the trees near his pasture. He always wanders to eat his fruit until a terrible storm blows the trees over and the farmers come to cut the wood from the trees. The little goat goes back in the winter just wishing that he could have his fruit trees back. He find some fruit seeds and plants them and next spring a fruit trees begins to grow. He is finally going to have his fruit tree back. All it took was a little seed to get the trees growing again. This is an example of a modern fantasy book. ( )

This book was about a little goat that did not like to eat leftovers, but fresh fruit, specifically apples. This goat would eat fruit day in and day out and spit the seeds over the hedge. His favorite apple orchard was destroyed, however because he spit so many seeds over the hedge there was a brand new orchard growing and everyone was happy with the little apple goat.

Summary: Little Apple Goat is a farm animal who prefers to eat fruit from the orchard instead of leftovers. Day after day and year after year, she spits the pits and seeds over the hedge on her way home to the meadow. One autumn day, a storm blows through the farm and knocks over all of the trees in the orchard, making the animals very sad. Once winter and spring pass, the animals are surprised to see new fruit trees growing, creating a new orchard. Unknowingly, Little Apple Goat has planted a new orchard from the seeds she has been spitting out.

Genre Critique: This is a great example of a fantasy, because it would not be possible for animals to think, talk, and feel human emotions in the real world. Even though these aspects of the story cannot be true, children can still relate to the feelings that the animals have about being sad when something is lost and rejoicing when it returns again. In addition, the context of the story is believable, as farms, orchards, and storms all exist in the real world.

Review: This heart warming tale tells of the a little goat who loved fruit and unknowingly plants a whole orchard after a whole autumn of snacking on different fruits. When a storm hits and knocks all the orchard trees over, the animals are very sad. Once winter and spring pass, the animals are surprised to see a new orchard pop up! This story has an element of foreshadowing and prediction that is perfect for young readers who are developing their critical reading skills.

Genre: This book is an excellent example of fantasy. In this tale animals can think, talk, and feel emotions. When the animals find out that their orchard has been destroyed they are saddened. When they realize that a new one has grown they are over joyed and happy. These simple emotions, happy and sad, are integral parts of the human experience, that the farm animals enter into in this fictional tale. ( )

Review: This book is a fantasy book because there are events that cannot take place in our world, like animals talking. The fantasy stays together throughout the story because the animals are consistent in their behavior and can talk, but do not change in their mannerisms. The story is made to be believable because the events that happen seem to be real, like a storm knocking down the trees and a logger coming to take the logs.
Setting: This setting takes place on a farm. There is no specific time, but it seems to be modern. The setting is consistent and stays at the farm, but progresses throughout time. This is shown through the change in seasons and weather.
Use: read to enjoy, creative writing prompt, learning about animals ( )

The genre of this book is realistic fiction. Since the characters do not talk in the story, this could happen in real life. The Little Goat is the main character. She is a deep character because she shows growth throughout the story. We are revealed more about her during the course of the book as she finds out about trees and life. The setting of this book takes place on a farm. This is important because it adds to the authenticity of the characters who are farm animals. ( )

Genre: Modern Fantasy

This is a good example of modern fantasy because goats do not pick out what kinds of fruit they get to eat, and they are not able to cognitively process when something they love is gone. The animals later in the story also all start talking about when the orchard tree stumps are hauled away. This would never happen in real life. The idea that the seeds would suddenly sprout into a whole other orchard is also very farfetched. The truth is however, that orchards are planted from seeds and that goats do not always have to eat whatever they are given; some goats do eat other things. This story is definitely make believe.

The media used in this book looks like collage, watercolor, and black ink. It is stated in the beginning of the book, and it is obvious inside the book as well, because of the shading and the outlining of the animals. The way that the sky is shaded and how the different leaves on the trees look like they were cut out first before pasted into the book also give it away. The colors are vibrant and there are not a lot of colors that differ or stray from bright primaries.

The main character is the little goat that loves to eat fruit. She is the protagonist and the one that the story follows along everywhere. The animals in the barnyard are also other characters that are just supporting characters. The antagonist in the story would probably be the weather that strips the trees of the fruit and freezes them, and the foil is the truck that hauls the orchard trees away. The little goat seems to be a flat character because she does not seem to mind or do anything about the trees other than be sad about them being gone. She is just the same through the whole book, and at the end, we find she is happy, and that makes the readers happy also.

Super cute picture book for primary grade levels. This is a fantasy because of the personification of the goat. The little apple goat plants trees and ends up saving the farm because of it. Not much depth but still an entertaining nad cute book. Media: Collage, Watercolor, black ink ( )
