Read It

Have your child read the passage below:

Do Goats Eat Oats?


My dad likes to sing a silly song with goats that eat oats. I can't help but groan when he listens to it.


But I want to know if it's real: Do goats eat oats?


It turns out that goats really do eat oats. They have a lot of energy and are good for goats.


In fact, goats are known to eat pretty much anything, from grass and straw to trees and shrubs.


My dad will probably gloat, but that silly song was not a hoax. It was telling the truth. 


Explain It

Now have your child answer a couple questions about the story:

  1. What is this story about?

  2. So, what do goats eat? Do they eat anything besides oats?
