    This book was a great read because it let you into the wonderful world of Chimpanzees! It was interesting to learn so many things about chimps throughout the book and to hear about Jane's adventures. Before reading this book I knew that Chimpanzees were very similar to humans, but I didn't know very much. I also didn't know much about Jane. Now I know so much about both. I think that it is amazing how Jane had a love for animals her whole life and how she was dedicated to her work.

Before reading this book I knew that Chimpanzees were very similar to humans, but I didn't know very much. I also didn't know much about Jane. Now I know so much about both. I think that it is amazing how Jane had a love for animals her whole life and how she was dedicated to her work. It is also amazing how someone could be so interested in one topic and have work, well, be fun. Being in high school, I think it is very important to find a topic you are interested in and could be dedicated to. Now I know that Jane is a great role model and is someone to look up to. I also learned, and can barely fathom, that chimps can learn around 300 different signs in ASL. On top of that, I loved how Jane didn't dwell on certain parts and gave just the right about of information throughout the book. This is very hard to do. I also loved how the book ended in a question. I would recommend this book to anyone that is interested in animals or nature in general.

    This book is geared to children. In addition to the biographical information there are lessons about conservation, pets, ethical treatment of animals etc. The audiobook is full of sound effects. Children might like this, but I did not.

    Wonderful book by one of the foremost primate researchers and conservationists. Jane Goodall has been working with chimpanzees at Gombe forest reserve, Tanzania since 1960 and this book traces her entire journey. Had wanted to read her works ever since I read an excerpt of one in the book section of reader's digest many years ago. highly recommended for all animal lovers Wonderful book by one of the foremost primate researchers and conservationists.

    I chose this as my Book 1 of Popsugar's 2017 Reading Challenge (http://www.popsugar.com/love/Reading-...), "a book written by someone you admire." This was a short, easy read by Jane Goodall about her work in Africa. And now I'm wishing all over again that I had a more interesting and adventurous career.

    ”What about my dream of Africa? Had I forgotten it? Absolutely not. I spent hours wandering about in the natural history museum. I continued reading books about animals, especially African animals. And while I loved my job I knew that it was just filling in time. Always I was waiting for my lucky break. When that lucky beak finally came, I was ready.” “We talked about my future.

Always I was waiting for my lucky break. When that lucky beak finally came, I was ready.” “We talked about my future. Louis never minded if his scientific staff had higher degrees or not: The important thing, as far as he was concerned, was that they had knowledge and were hardworking and dedicated.” “Wraaah!” “Suddenly a chimp charged straight toward me. His hair bristled with rage. At the last minute he swerved and ran off. I stayed still. Two more chimps charged nearby. Then, suddenly, I realized I was alone again. All the chimps has gone. Only then did I realize how frightened I had been. When I stood up my legs were trembling! Male chimps, although they are only four feet tall when upright, are at least three times stronger than a grown man. And I weighed only about ninety pounds. I had become very thin with so much climbing in the mountains and only one meal a day.” “You get to choose: do you want to use your life to try to make the world a better place for humans and animals or the environment? Or not?” “How do we help make the world a better place for all the hurting, desperate people and animals? The only way is for each of us to do what we can in our own little neck of the woods.”

    I enjoyed this especially because I could hear Jane's gentle voice after having watched her on television. People like Jane who share their knowledge and experience of the wild world are a treasure. Her accounts about the daily routines of the animals gave me an appreciation of how the chimps survive and interact socially which is the subtle stuff that we don't see in zoos or on sensationalized nature television programming.

    This ended up being an audiobook - actually narrated by Jane Goodall!! - and despite my library's shelving it as "adult, non-fiction" it was a book geared at children. I loved it anyway. It's the sort of book I wish I had discovered when I was about ten. She never talks down to her audience and her passion for animals - all animals - and the environment was simply infectious. And as if I couldn't like Goodall any more than I already do, she - like me - detests ironing.

    Jane Goodall is magic. This book was a treasure from start to finish. She speaks right to her young readers without talking down to them. She uses this book to accomplish two things 1) to explain to her fans and young readers why and how she went into her work with chimpanzees. How her passion and strengths as a child and teen funneled into her making goals for herself on which she never gave up. She simply worked for the right kind of opportunities and jumped at chances to do what she wanted ev Jane Goodall is magic. This book was a treasure from start to finish.

She uses this book to accomplish two things 1) to explain to her fans and young readers why and how she went into her work with chimpanzees. How her passion and strengths as a child and teen funneled into her making goals for herself on which she never gave up. She simply worked for the right kind of opportunities and jumped at chances to do what she wanted even when it was risky. She guides and advises young people on how to turn their love of animals into careers with meaning. It is very specific and one of my kids feels like this was a direct answer to her questions in this regard. Jane Goodall is very encouraging and lovely 2) Just as much as she tells stories about the chimps she studies she also teaches children about ethical problems in the treatment of animals. Medical and cosmetic testing on animals, unnecessary cruelty, factory farming. She wants people to know how animals, not just in jungles are being misused, hunted, wiped out, habitats destroyed by humans but she also wants to teach young people about animals in their own backyards being misused. She teaches about how to know more about labeling, using products that are cruelty free and responsibly farmed foods when possible. She loves the earth and animals and is probably one the world's greatest teachers and protectors of the planet. She does it in such a kind, compassionate way. The only thing we wished was that this were longer. We could have used WAY more time spent on her adventures in Gombe with the chimps. We look forward to more of her books and films.

    Very impressive book! I loved it...Excerpt from a book: "July 16, 1960 was a day I shall remember all my life. It was first time set foot on the chimpanzee land in Gombe National Park. It was the handsome male with the dense white beard. I had already named him David Greybeard. He was first one who visited the camp.

    Her life, in her own words, Jane Goodall truly is an inspiration to all! If you or your child loves animals, this is the most amazing book that walks you through Jane's life as she observes the behaviour of animals and eventually chimps. She shows how anyone can make a difference in the world and that we have to at least try when we see that something isn't right.

    I enjoyed this as an audiobook with Jane herself as the narrator. I think the book is geared more towards children but I still loved hearing her story in her own voice. She is such an inspiration and offers hope for the future of the earth’s animals and communities all over the world. She is an amazing woman....

    Synopsis: The book, My life with the Chimpanzees, by Jane Goodall is about how a young girls dream turned into reality. The book starts out with how she got interested in the study of animal behavior. She relates it to her childhood. She talks about how she was the leader of the alligator club. Most of her activities that she did as a kid, (hiking, snail racing, reading books about animals) drove her to the career path that she dreamed about.

The book starts out with how she got interested in the study of animal behavior. She relates it to her childhood. She talks about how she was the leader of the alligator club. Most of her activities that she did as a kid, (hiking, snail racing, reading books about animals) drove her to the career path that she dreamed about. I find it important for young readers to pay attention to this part of the book because it shows that the passions that they have now can later become a career. She then goes into her long journey regarding how she got to Africa. She had to get a college education in order to land a job at a global company that had an office in Nairobi, Kenya. She eventually found a way to land a job at a local museum, working for Louis Leaky. Louis Leaky then secured the funding for her to be able to study primates at a local national park. After, gaining her PHD she went to Africa in order to start a research center. I like this part of the book because she talks about her personal relationships with the animals, like Flo. She also has a lot of funny and interesting stories that allow the reader to see the personality of the author. The final part of the book calls for action. Jane talks about the destructive nature of human societies on the forest. She asks her readers to consider what they can do in order to mitigate their impact on the climate. I think this can be a great way to launch a lesson on human interaction in the environment. I would say this book is for great for 3-5 grade. Instructional applications: I think this book has a lot of instructional applications. A teacher can read this book for a cultural competence and diversity lesson because it shows an important female member of the scientific community. A teacher can also read this book for the science curriculum. They can use it as a way to measure human interaction on an environment and to show what scientists do. They can also use it as part of their social studies curriculum. A teacher can ask the students to find all of the places in the book on the map. The book also talks about the sacrifices that people had to make during World War 2. Reasoning for why it’s a WOW book: I think this is a wow book because it shows a person putting in work and dedication in order to persevere. Due to her hard work she was able to land the job of her dreams. I think this is a great lesson to teach anyone, but especially elementary schoolers. I also love the authors voice in the story. It gave the anecdotes regarding her time in Africa a personal touch, that some authors are unable to create.

It is elegantly told, using a vocabulary and simple writing style that should be suitable even for children to read. For, as the conclusion of the book shows, it is up to the youth of the world to protect the environment and to heal as much of it as they can. The book can be divided into three main parts. The first part is the story of Goodall as she grows up, fascinated by nature and already performing the kind of observations that would make her famous later in life: diligently watching the hens in the hen house lay eggs. She is eager to continue her observations of nature as she grows up but is held back by the needs of society to become a 'respectable girl' of that era. But that was to change when, after saving up enough money to make a trip to Africa to see the animals, she encounters one person that was to change everything: Louis Leakey. He would put Goodall in charge of observing chimpanzees at Gombe, from which she would make her famous observations that would change what we think of chimpanzees. The second part of the book details her various observations and interactions with the chimpanzees at Gombe. She details the initial frustrations she had gaining their trust, including one episode where she was surrounded by them and under possible attack. Then she gets a breakthrough and from then on, she was able to make her observations of them, including the famous one detailing their use of sticks and leaves as tools to get termites from mounds. She covers the movements of the chimpanzee troop at Gombe, providing details by naming several individual male and females and telling us about the dynamics of chimpanzee troop behaviour. The third part is Goodall's view of the world, on the destruction of nature and on animals being held captive by humans or being used in experiments. She details some of the efforts she and others have made to improve animal welfare, to protect wildife areas and to educate people (especially the youth) on how to take care of the environment. In that, she urges everyone to take part.

Ever since the first time I had heard of Jane Goodall and her work I have been in awe of her. After reading this book, I am not only continuously in awe of her but also inspired to make changes myself to lead a more compassionate lifestyle and help heal our environment. Jane Goodall is just such an incredible human being and I absolutely plan on reading more of her books in the future and learning more about her work.

    It's really neat to hear Dr. Goodall tell her story, but the tons of sound effects got old—I liked hearing the chimp calls, but didn't need the human-made sounds. This is aimed at youth (probably the reason for the extra sound effects) but I liked it too. Listening to Dr. Goodall reminded me of documentaries about her that I watched when I was younger. I think I want to look up some documentaries about her to watch. This was a great taste of what I enjoyed in those, but it is just a taste.

    3.5 stars. Goodall wonderfully relates how she fulfilled her dream of studying animals (but there's no story of Jubilee!) and describes some fascinating discoveries. Her chimps come alive as characters. I did not appreciate how preachy the final chapters were, but she is definitely inspiring. 3.5 stars.

I intended it as a present for my grandson, who wants to be a primatologist when he grows up. But he's almost 14 now, and quite smart -- so this book isn't suitable for him any longer. It's well written, but possibly written more for the 7-9 age set. Lots of discussion about how loss of habitat, poaching, hunting for bush meat, and the exotic pet trade are fast making chimpanzees (and other African primnates) very much in danger of becoming extinct. Which is a good thing -- if these species can be saved, the next generation has to be recruited into the fray.

Jane Goodall is one of the most highly regarded people in the world when it comes to wildlife. The main characters in the book are Jane, her son, and her second husband. I can connect this book to any animal biography because it's about animals. I can connect this to real life because there are a lot of people that study animals and show as much passion for them as Jane Goodall. I can connect this also to myself because I am fascinated in monkeys which are close to chimps. I would give this book a four star rating because any biography about animals fascinates me. I give it a four because it always kept me sucked in but I thought some of the book wasn't needed and could have been left out. I would recommend this to anyone ages 11-100 because some of the stuff younger kids wouldn't understand but IM sure it could be read out loud to them.

    I loved My Life With The Chimpanzees. Jane Goodall did a great job showing what her life was like before she grew an interest in chimps. Yet, she still had a fascination for animals her whole life, which I had never known. There were so many things I never knew about Jane that I learned from this book, and so many things about chimps I learned from this book. To be honest, I didn’t really feel too excited about the book when I first looked at it, but then I began reading it. I looked forward to I loved My Life With The Chimpanzees.

It was exciting to read about the lion incident with Hugo, and sad when she found the Irish Wolfhound, up in a tree because a leopard got it. Every moment of the book, I cherish. Every word I read, I love. Every time I picked it up, I was pulled into Jane Goodall’s life. It is not a book you read and finish. It is a book you read, and you cherish.

    Thank you to libro.fm, the author and publisher for the audio advanced reader copy. All opinions are my own. I enjoyed this one - I do think it could have gone in depth a little more at times, as I was left wondering about her family and friends a bit sometimes. It was a nice look at her life, and was in fact read by Ms. Goodall. Always a nice touch in biographical audio.

    If I could conjure up a kindly auntie, to sit at her knee and listen to her stories and brush her static-crackling silver hair at night, Jane Goodall would be it. Her story is compelling, told in her fairy-godmother voice that I could listen to forever.
