This book is about Jane Goodall finding her love for apes by observing them in their habitat. This is a very cute book! It teaches children ot only about Goodall's life, but how she never stopped doing what she loved. ( )

"The Watcher: Jane Goodall's life with the Chimps" By Jeanette Winter is about Jane Goodall and her story about how she started observing chimps. Teachers can read this book to the students to inform them about Jane Goodall and how she started. I did not know anything about Jane Goodall until my children literature teacher read this to the class. It is a biography but also have a good story line to it. ( )

This is a story about a girl who loved to watch animals as a child. When she got older she went to Kenya to learn about chimps. Then, she went to Tanzia, to study the chimps and their habitat. For a while, she did not get much information. She was almost to the point of leaving. Finally, she started interacting with the chimps, and she discovered things people did not know about chimps! Very cute book. I love it, because it is encouraging to children to never stop chasing their dreams! ( )

As far as biographies go, this is a great one for young readers in grades K-3. It simply explains how and why Jane Goodall started doing what she did. The organization and Illustration of the book were very well done!. ( )
