“And when she went back to civilization to speak out for the chimps Jane carried with her a piece of the forest.“
Published in 2011, this children's book tells the journey of Jane Goodall and how she came to her amazing findings. Jane had dreamed about buying a ticket to Jenya, so she worked to save up to pursue her passion. She later would advocate for saving the chimps. A very good book for early readers, and beautiful artwork.

This B is a marvelous PB about Dr. Jane Goodall, the woman who lived with the chimpanzees and opened the door to understanding many aspects of them and the animal world that we never would‘ve known otherwise, as well as fighting to protect them. It is an inspiring story of a woman who always watched and observed the animals around her from a young age and worked hard to make her dream come true.
#OctoberXFiles Day 19: Perhaps the chimps felt #SomebodysWatchingMe with Jane Goodall around 24/7. I was especially struck by how she described her first time to set up camp as part of her work with the chimpanzees. The story ends with Jane‘s advocacy to speak out for endangered animals, pleading with the rest of humanity to help save the forest that is their home. My review: https://wp.me/pDlzr-bxG
This B picture book follows the life and adventures of Jane Goodall. The book was named a Best Book of the Year by the Boston Globe, Kirkus Reviews, Booklist, and the Bank Street College of Education. This book would be good as a RA, SR, or PR.
The Watcher: Jane Goodall's Life with the Chimps by Jeanette Winter is one of my favorite children's biographies that explores the life of Jane Goodall and her extraordinary connection with chimps. This book is an awesome way to discuss endangered animals and the role us humans can play. #UCFWaltersLit
“I wish that when I was a little girl, I could have read about someone like Jane Goodall—a brave woman who wasn‘t afraid to do something that had never been done before. So now I‘ve made this book for that little girl, who still speaks to me.” —Jeanette Winter
