    My step-daughter had the most wonderful idea for her baby shower. As she and her husband are established and well off financially, instead of “gifts” each guest was asked to bring to her shower a baby book in which they’d written a comment. As I’m a thousand miles away and couldn’t attend that weekend, I scoured Amazon for “meaningful” baby books. I bought several, but this was my favorite.Being 64 years old, I well remember Jane Goodall’s astonishing work. She was an amazing role model and she broke the mold in how she studied her chimpanzee troops. I am still breath-taken at the video of the baby chimpanzee’s initiation of first-touch, his small finger reaching out to touch Jane’s nose.This book is perfect. A surprisingly comprehensive, fun, well-written and excellent child’s book. There will be horrific challenges for my grandchild’s generation to attempt to save wildlife species from the damages we have done. Maybe this book will help to steer his life toward that protection.

    great book for kids
    I bought this for our grandsons (ages 3 1/2 & 6) in honor of “earth day” & Jane Goodall. I also made a point of reading it myself before dropping it off for them — since I can’t read it to them directly due to social distancing.The illustrations are visually appealing and the author incorporates information directly from JG’s autobiographical writings. Having recently re-watched the National Geographic special on JG as well as a newer documentary that focuses on 3 pioneering female primatologists (including JG), I found this book to be genuine & authentic while still being accessible to very young children.I think it’s extremely important to expose young boys (as well as girls) to profiles of females like JG who have managed to carve out unusual and independent career paths and who have had such a strong impact on environmental issues. Also, the next generation can only benefit by learning about humans who value their relationships with animals and nature as much (if not more than) their relationships with fellow humans. I hope to hear that the boys really enjoyed this book!

    Interesting and entertaining biography for kids
    Excellent series of books, Jane Goodall has many interesting facts in this biography that will keep your young reader engaged and entertained. My 8 year old granddaughter learned so much about Jane Goodall and her work by reading this.

    Great message from real story
    Love the engaging kid friendly story of a real life. Love the message about following her gut and your own… to look out for others, whether person, animal, or nature itself.

    Great book but not for a toddler
    This series is wonderful in both writing and illustration. My only quibble is that Amazon gives this book a rating for children 3-7. There are a LOT of words for the attention span of a typical 3 year old. I would say this is more appropriate for a 5 year old. Nothing wrong with the book itself but more suited to an early-elementary child (or an unusually focused/advance younger child).

    This book is perfect. I went to see Dr. Goodall speak in person, and this book tells her story exactly as she did. The book is also very cute (the illustrations, etc.) , and informative as well. I am a teacher, and cannot wait to use this with my students!

    Beautiful story, maybe a bit too mature for my 4.5 year old. She loved it, but it also caused us to discuss important but difficult topics: why were girls not being allowed to study / only allowed to be nurses? (why Jane did not want to be a nurse?) why would someone think chimpanzees do not have feelings? (all questions asked by my daughter). So this book does its job brilliantly, however I would not recommend below 4.5 years old, even better for a bit older children.
