Review | Wednesday 25 May 2011
The inspirational Jane Goodall turned a love of nature into a lifetime’s work with chimpanzees in Tanzania. From hiding in the chicken coop so she could understand the miracle of an egg to leading a club called ‘The Alligator Society’, her drawings, puzzles and observations of the natural world showed her passion from an early age.
Me … Jane’s charm is in its simplicity and sweet portrayal of Jane’s life and her respect for the environment and the animals. As she says in her afterword, ‘each one of us can make a difference, the life of each one of us matters in the scheme of things’.
A delightful introduction to the life of an amazing woman. For readers aged three and up.
