Most people today know about Jane Goodall because of her incredible work with chimpanzees in the Gombe Stream National Park in Tanzania. They may also know about her efforts to educate people about environmental conservation and the need to respect animals. But what few people know is that, throughout her life, Jane Goodall has been a woman shaped by Africa. She grew up thinking about Africa; she spent her adult years observing chimpanzees and raising her son there; and now she travels the world telling everyone how important protecting the habitat of African animals is.
This book (part of the “What’s So Great About…”) series, gives kids insight into life, times and career of Jane Goodall.
