Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature
Animal lover Jane Goodall is the subject of this "First Biographies" title from Capstone Press. Readers learn how her early experiences influenced her love of chimpanzees. We also learn about her work as an ambassador for peace and as an advocate for the environment. Overall, the humanity of this great animal anthropologist is displayed through black-and-white and color photographs. We see Goodall as a small girl, all the way through her work, and then in her recent work at the United Nations as a gray-haired adult. A timeline appears on each page to help the reader see how her life has developed. The back matter consists of a glossary, references, and an Internet site, so young readers can learn more about this great scientist's accomplishments. In terms of curriculum studies, this book is ideal for biographies, women's studies, and natural science. 2005, Capstone Press, Ages 4 to 8.
