This has got to be the cutest book I have seen for littles in a while. While I was reading this to my grand son he sat through the whole thing. This is not something he does very often. He doesn’t seem to like being read to for some reason, but he likes this book. For information the grand son is almost 3 but still non verbal. He enjoyed looking at the pictures while I read the book to him. I was surprised that he sat through the whole thing, he is very mobile and would much rather be mobile rather than sitting still.
The pictures look to be hand drawn and are all absolutely beautiful. I’m guessing the pictures were done by the author Katie O’Donoghue but as far as I can tell it doesn’t say specifically. The story is about a squirrel that worries and his friends, old and new, come to help him work through his worry so that he gather is acorns before winter.

Everyone has certain resources they use all the time and I am no different. There are certain websites, books, and even people that I always go to when I need help or have a question. So for today’s challenge I will provide my resources that I use often.
https://homesteadingfamily.com/ – This is one that I found shortly after we started our journey and I have it bookmarked. This family has been homesteading for a while now so if I have a question, many times I can find my answer on this site.
Holistic Goat Care by Gianaclis Caldwell – This can be found here on Amazon. This is my go to book for everything goat related. I love that this book has natural ways of helping your animals. She does however say that one should have a vet they can call to ensure treatment of the correct issues.
Another website that I go to quite often is the USDA website. I love this site because it has so much information on it for farmers and ranchers. This is where I found information on becoming registered as a farm and information on organic gardening.
I think finally, the other website I use a lot is the Dept of Agriculture. This is another one that I have used for information. You can contact the State’s Veterinarians office and the livestock inspectors through this site. I believe every state has their own Dept. of Agriculture site. The one listed above is for Arizona. Just do a search for your state’s Dept of Agriculture site and it should have some of the same information on each state’s site I would think.
Are there resources that you use that you feel should be added to this list? Leave me a comment below and let me know. I would love to see what resources you use.
I got this book about a year ago and it is my go to for everything goat related. It was recommended to me by a friend that also raises goats and he lives by the information in this book. I have used several of the treatments and so far everything is good. The information in this book comes from years of experience from the author so I feel I can trust it. Of course I would always recommend talking to your vet to make sure that you are treating the right problems and not just a symptom.
Your vet will still be the first place you turn when you have an issue with one of your animals, but once you know what is wrong, treatment doesn’t always have to include chemicals from the laboratory. There are so many ways that things can be treated with your animals without vaccines or medications. However, I will say that there are times these are needed and it is best to consult with your vet before starting any treatment on your own.
