    Jane Goodall's dedication to anthropology and respect to animals, especially to chimpanzees, is a great influence to everyone, notably to the young readers of this children's storybook. Her passion and dedication to fulfill her dream to study animals are also quite inspiring. Despite that she can't afford to go to a university, she did everything she can to accomplish her goals even to this day.

Despite that she can't afford to go to a university, she did everything she can to accomplish her goals even to this day. A beautiful person, inside and out, Jane Goodall is one of the role models that young kids should look up to. Her vision to set awareness on the African jungles starting to disappear, and the protection of the wildlife animals and their natural habitat are the vital information that this book wants to impart to all readers. Undoubtedly, this is another great book in the Little People, Big Dreams book series that parents and teachers should grab for their children and students.

Like Flo, Flint, Fifi and Gigi." The names of the chimps must be nearly as well known as the woman who studied them for so many years, Dame Jane Morris Goodall, DBE. She's so familiar to us that we think nothing of referring to her as just Jane. This is a basic children's board book adapted for very small children, to introduce them to her world of chimpanzees and the natural world that belongs to us all but which we aren't doing such a great job of looking after. Like many children, Jane had a favourite soft toy, a chimpanzee. Many kids grow up thinking vaguely they'd like to work with animals, but Jane took it a step further. Jane dreamed of wild chimpanzees in the jungle. And you know what? She didn't outgrow her desire. She found a job working in the jungles of Africa! Jane studying the chimps who are studying her She studied them for forty years and discovered things scientists found hard to believe. Jane discovers chimpanzees making tools. As their habitat is disappearing, she has been making the world aware of how precious these communities of wild animals are and how we must work to save them. Jane is grey-haired now but is still holding a small chimp and speaking to the public about them. Because this is an introductory picture book, I have taken the liberty of filling in a few blanks, as I would like to hope an adult might do when reading this with a child. If they don't, perhaps they will be inspired to look her up, if nothing else. While it states that she discovered chimps make tools, it doesn't say that until then, it was accepted that only humans were capable of that. Since then, we've found many other animals are using and fashioning tools, and we're not quite as exceptional as we'd like to think. Although that's a concept beyond the intended audience (toddlers, I guess), it doesn't hurt to start early! Something that isn't mentioned (no reason in such a simple book, but it's interesting) is that she has a level of face-blindness (prosopagnosia) which makes it difficult for her to recognise people and chimpanzees until she knows them well. Fortunately, she came to know her jungle family so well that she wrote books about them with wonderful photographs so that we could tell them apart easily. I hope this basic beginner story will set a few curious kids off on their own journeys of discovery. Who knows where our next explorer will find inspiration? Thanks to NetGalley and Frances Lincoln Children's Books for the preview copy from which I've shared some pictures. It's nice to see they're starting with the very earliest readers in their Little People BIG DREAMS series.

    Having been dissapointed with many books in this series I was pleasantly surprised that this book gave interesting information about Jane Goodhall, told in an interesting way without ugly or anachronistic illustrations. This was a good book about Jane's life, her work, what she achieved and how she strove to get into her career despite being from a background too poor for university. The photographs of Jane at the back were very touching.

    Jane Goodall by Isabel Sanchez Vegara is a book I requested from NetGalley and it is a terrific book for kids! I have always adored Jane Goodall and this book shows her as a girl and how she got started with her chimpanzee interest. How she grew to love them and to work with them. It is not about her as a woman, just a brief bit at the end, but the bulk is about her ambitions as a young girl! A great role model!!!

And truth be told, I only decided to finally read and review Jane Goodall because I own a copy (on my Kindle for IPad) and yes, that the cover image actually looks visually respectful of Jane Goodall, that Jane Goodall is depicted realistically and pleasantly. And indeed and very much a more than pleasant personal surprise, Jane Goodall is most definitely one of the few of the Little People, Big Dreams series I have encountered to date where I have found both Maria Isabel Sanchez Vegara's narrative and Beatrice Cerocchi's illustrations of equal and positive quality, a solid and engaging marriage of text and images (delightfully and engagingly presenting a both verbally and visually solid general introduction to both Jane Goodall's life and achievements, simply presented but with always more than enough relevant information for young readers to obtain a realistic and enlightening picture of Jane Goodall and how her observations and studies of Chimpanzees in Africa has shown us that they indeed are closely related to us and yes, also make and use tools which knowledge they also pass on to their children, but equally and sadly, but nevertheless most importantly and essentially that Chimpanzees, like many animal species, are also vulnerable, are often critically endangered by and through human encroachment, hunting, the despicable evil of poaching, the so-called exotic pet trade and desperately require help, assistance and protection, both of their surrounds, their living spaces and the sad fact that they are often seen and considered by their human "cousins" as expendable, as a resource, as prey and even as a source of utterly vile and disgusting bush-meat).

    Another great addition to the Little People, Big Dream series. I'd highly recommend for any young child who you want to introduce to great historical figures. Goodall's in particular is great for children who love animals. Also cool is that they list a few other children's biography books about the person on the back cover.

She is now an advocate for saving the habitat of the primates as well as conservation and education. This is a child friendly biography with delightful illustrations. It is a story that shows a young woman striving to achieve her dream. This book could be used to teach young children how to write a biography, show that it is important to have a dream and strive to achieve it as well as to introduce them to this well known primatologist. A good book for a school library. The publisher generously provided me with a copy of this book to read via netgalley. The rating, opinions and ideas stated are my own. 4.5 stars rounded up to 5 stars.

Subtitled ‘My first Jane Goodall’ you get the impression that many young minds will search for more details about this woman who achieved so much. Some may say she grew up with a chip on her shoulder. If you look closer you’ll see it is a chimp. In celebration of the researcher and scientist who spent time with chimpanzees in their natural habitat. Did much to promote environmental understanding for animals and their endangerment due to constricting habitat. I have been to the zoo today. I have seen many endangered primates, gibbons and chimpanzees. I was grateful that a young woman realised her childhood dreams and at a time Women did not travel to remote countries had the determination to study her animals at work and play. Another fine book for children we all need to grasp and learn its message.

    As a little girl with a love of animals and a dream to work with them, little Jane’s imagination ran wild in the African jungle. Her work in Africa studying Chimpanzees and learning about how they were similar to humans was invaluable to science. Jane has become a role model for little girls and women everywhere. Her love of animals in childhood transformed into a crusade to protect wildlife, nature and animals, making the perfect modern heroine.

    I think this is one of the stronger board-book versions of these books that I've read. I'm still not sure why babies and toddlers would want to read biographies, but at least the pictures in this one are fun to look at and aren't too anachronistic (a trait that plagues some of the other titles in this series). This book gives a very basic overview of Jane Goodall's life and work. I have a feeling I'd like the full version better, but for what it is, this board book is okay.

    Jane Goodall has been a very determined woman from her early childhood on. She knew early on what she wanted to do in life and she continues to not only do that, she continues to inspire people. This small book brings Jane Goodall to young readers, exactly the right age to be inspired by her example.

    At last, a board book in this series about someone I've actually had the pleasure of meeting. Dr Jane Goodall does something to do with chimpanzees in this book, and if you didn't know that then the word features five and a half times in twelve double-page spreads, just to drum it in. At least the shift to a more ecological bent, in reference to Jane's more recent media/campaigning persona, is there as a better lesson.

I've yet to see an example where they are on a par with the wordier editions that remain vital for those just a couple of years older.

    Love love love this series of book. My daughter loves discovering a new person with each book, and as we read about Jane Goodall she listened entranced and kept asking if she was a “real person” and did she REALLY live with the chimpanzees?! This is a great series, and this book was very well done.
