Star, the Little Goat Kid
When one of Mr. Brown’s goats gives birth to three goat kids, brother and sister get to name them. Bubbles and Jake are both lively and full of energy — but the littlest goat kid, Star, is slow moving and won’t eat. Mr. Brown tells them that they will do everything they can for Star, but that sometimes animals on the farm don’t live very long. “It is part of life on the farm,” explains Mrs. Brown. “There is great life, but there is also death.” The following morning, they learn that little Star has died, and the entire family joins the Browns to grieve together.
