Reading Mastery II: Storybook 1
by Siegfried Engelmann and Elaine C. Bruner
The book is part of the thirty-one volume Reading Mastery series published by
the SRA Macmillan early-childhood education division of McGraw-Hill.
It uses the direct instruction teaching style.
"The Pet Goat" (erroneously known as "My Pet Goat") is a children's story contained in the book.
"The Pet Goat" is the story of a girl's pet goat which eats everything in its path.
The girl's parents want to get rid of the goat, but she defends it.
In the end, the goat becomes a hero when it butts a car robber into submission.
A sample passage:
"A girl got a pet goat. She liked to go running with her pet goat.
She played with her goat in her house. She played with her goat in her yard.
But the goat did some things that made the girl's dad mad. The goat ate things.
He ate cans and he ate canes. He ate pans and he ate panes. He even ate capes and caps."
"Presidential material, through and through! [...] The tempo, the choice of words,
and the layout on each page captured my imagination so much that it took me about
seven minutes to recover my bearings."

"We had agreed with the overall commander Mohamed Atta, may God rest his soul,
to carry out all operations in 20 minutes -- before Bush and his administration could take notice.
It never occurred to us that the commander in chief of the American forces would leave 50,000
citizens in the two towers to face those horrors alone at a time when they most needed him
because he thought listening to a child discussing her goat and its ramming was more important
than the planes and their ramming of the skyscrapers.
This gave us three times the time needed to carry out the operations, thanks be to God."
