George Bush was reading a story about a pet goat to some school children when he was told about an aircraft hitting the World Trade Centre on 9/11. The story was so engaging he kept reading for another 7 minute after he was told about the second plane hitting the towers! The story is about a pet goat that eats everything. The girl loves her goat but her dad wants to get rid of it. In the end the goat saves the family from a robber. The moral of the story is to treat everybody kindly because they may help us one day, even if we don’t expect them to.
