And who ever would win would leads the team through battles against other animals and sometimes they would win or sometimes they will retreat back to their base. I would recommend this book to kids that like adventurous and who also like romance and the wild and love Animals.

    Summary- Jane Goodall was a very young girl who developed a passion for chimpanzees. She later did everything in her power to live in Africa among such creatures to study and make friends with. She had named many of them and even grieved over few. She would go on to start many programs and travel the world, informing others on what she thought best. Review- I've only read 3 Who Was/Is books (Who was Albert Einstein, Who Is Jeff Kinney, Who Is Jane Goodall) and I think this is the best of the bunch.

The illustrations are fairly great, but could be better. The facts in here were very interesting, and even educated me on some things. I would recommend it to anyone who is willing to learn things about famous or important people.

    Our family had the good fortune of hearing Dr. Jane Goodall speak in person last month. This was one of two biographical Goodall books the 11-year-old and I borrowed from the library to learn more about this living legend. Young readers will enjoy this quick read. Two thumbs up.

    Who is Jane Goodall? by Roberta Edwards, illustrated by John O'Brien - Here's my first non-fiction chapter book that I read alongside my son. We didn't read aloud, just silently read together and then discussed as the story progressed. For example when we were reading the page where Jane was attacked by a chimpanzee I said "oh no, this is terrible" and my son said "Shh, I'm not there yet... oh no mommy, did this really happen?!"

When we read the pages about a chimpanzee who had no empathy and went on a killing spree, we had a discussion on some humans who also don't care about how their actions hurt others... I loved this new biography entry into Jane Goodall's life. I think it is the perfect book to accompany those who loved both The Watcher and Me...Jane. Well done even in following her marriage, divorce, and family member involvement in her life. Also, I love how the end leads children to think about how they can also help the earth and learn with Jane Goodall!

    I liked this book and thought it was very interesting. It's cool how from the age of 10 she knew she was going to go to Africa and be with the monkeys. It really would take some guts to move into Africa and have no communication, for the most part, with any of your friends or family (except for her mom who she was with at the beginning ) . I know I couldn't do it. Also it's interesting how's she's not really afraid of anything but leopards... she's in a jungle for crying out loud!

She would watch the, and watch them and then they'd finally get used to her and come up to her. Jane could even tell which chimp was which. Jane even got into a fight with one of them, if I were her after that'd I would just leave but she didn't. This book was very interesting, I didn't know how smart some animals could actually be. And how a person could basically communicate with the chimpanzees. I would recommend this book to anyone who loves animals.

    Born in London, England, Jane Goodall always loved animals and being outdoors. She received a toy animal chimpanzee (that she named Jubilee after a chimp they were following on the news) from her father, but little did she know that later she would study animals in their natural habitats. At the age of 26, she went to Africa to Gombe Stream Game Reserve to study animals in their natural habitat, up-close and personal recognizing the similarities between humans and chimps.

    This book was very short, but interesting. I really liked learning about Jane and her life. I thought it was cute how her interest in chimps started with a toy chimp she got when she was a little kid! I liked how this book explained a lot about her research. I liked how she gave all the chimps names and a lot of them started with the letter F. She is so devoted to her life's work. It was very courageous of her to take on the jobs researching the chimps in the jungle. Now she travels the world gi This book was very short, but interesting.

    Great book for young readers about this remarkable woman. I loved the kind of relationship and support she had from her family, specially from her mother. There were personal facts I didn't know about her such as her two marriages and her son Grub. Great book for young readers about this remarkable woman.

    I thought this was a great book. It gave a good overview of Jane Goodall's accomplishments, kept it simple enough for early readers, had interesting illustrations, and finished with a message about how readers can add to Jane's legacy.

At age 23, Jane traveled to Kenya and met Dr. Louis Leakey, who would help her get into the role of observing the chimpanzees. Jane discovered many great things about the chimpanzees, wrote multiple books, and still travels around the world speaking about the threats facing chimpanzees and the environment. (Book 69 of 100) I love learning about Jane Goodall! While I was going to college to become a teacher, I even dressed up as Jane Goodall for a Living History Museum activity. Students could walk around the room, pick a person they wanted to learn about, press a "button" and we would start talking like we were that person. It was so much fun and I hope to do it in my classroom. I give this book a 4/5-star rating. I recommend this to anyone who wants to learn more about Jane Goodall. #WhoIsJaneGoodall #RobertaEdwards #100BooksInOneYear #Imaclassyrebelreader #lookatmyclassyrebelread #JaneGoodall #Biography #Chimpanzees #LivingHistoryMuseum #DavidGreyBeard #TermitesOnAStick

    Who is Jane Goodall by Roberta Edwards is a quick read about the life of the best known for her studies of Chimpanzees in Tanzania. She developed an interest in them as a child and took every opportunity to learn as much as she could about Chimps. As she became an adult she traveled to Africa to join a group there and began what became over 55 years studying and learning about Chimps. She documented many previously unknown facts about them and also dispelled many misunderstood behaviors as well.

She earned her PhD from Cambridge without first earning her undergraduate degree. She has since received many honorary doctorates from other universities. This book is very readable and keeps you engaged in the subject.

    Students at the library where I work love reading this series, so I chose a few from our collection to learn more. This little book about Jane Goodall‘s life and work is a gem. There are many fascinating tidbits about chimpanzees, so readers will find themselves learning as much about the species as about Jane herself. Especially sweet is the story of how her toy chimpanzee, Jubilee, namesake of a chimp at the London Zoo, inspired her to take up her studies, a decision that she made at age 10.

She deserves so much praise for her efforts to educate and inspire others, especially since the book indicates that she spends much of her year making speeches and not as much with her beloved chimps as she once did.

    I gave this book 4 stars because it was very informational and it helped me understand who she was. I enjoyed this book a lot because it is a non-fiction book-it was all true facts about Jane Goodall and what she did. My favorite part of this book is how the writer describes Jane and how all of these interesting facts are actually real. It has sad, exciting, and cool parts about it.

    One of the most decorated women scientists, Jane Goodall focussed her primary research in chimpanzees. The book highlights her trip to Africa and her personal observations of chimpanzees.

Her dad and mom got a divorce in 1952. Jane worked as a secretary and a waitress in order to save up money to go to Africa so visit a friend who bought a farm there. Her dream was to study chimps and learn about them. Jane was able to get a job in Africa from a scientist Louis Leakey and worked as a secretary in a museum in Kenya and also got to dig for fossils in Olduvai Gorge. Jane's mother Vanne, stayed for 4 months in Africa with Jane in an old army tent in the forest. Jane would try to get close to the chimps but every time she did they would run off.

She got to know the chimps and gave them names. She got to see how they communicated, how they lived, and the tools they made. Louis Leakey knew Jane was a chimp expert but her lack of having a degree from a college held her back. Mrs. Leakey helped Jane get into Cambridge University and Jane received her doctorate degree in 1965. In 1964 Jane got married to Hugo van Lawick. Jane became famous and appeared in books and on the T.V. She had a son was Hugo and after 10 year of marriage they got divorced.

Jane also started ChimpanZoo, which improves the lives of chimps in zoos.
