A life in the wild!

Jane Goodall, born in London, England, always loved animals and wanted to study them in their natural habitats. So at age twenty-six, off she went to Africa! Goodall's up-close observations of chimpanzees changed what we know about them and paved the way for many female scientists who came after her. Now her story comes to life in this biography with black-and-white illustrations throughout.

This was a really good book talking about the life of a person who got connected to chimpanzees like never before. I also watched the entire masterclass of her which I also recommend

Ever since Jane goodall had a chimpanzee stuffed animal when she was young she wanted to spend her life with chimpanzees . But it was hard to make that dream come true. After awhile of working her friend invites her to her new home in Africa which is exactly where she wants to go. Only thing is it's expensive . So she works and works. You'll have to read the book to find out what happens next. I love this book so much! I recommend to all ages and I rate this book 5/5 stars . Thank you for this review! 😁 - Pizzagirl7 😁

Great book! It's about a little girl who gets chimpanzee for her birthday. She then realizes her passion for animals and tries to find a chimpanzee and tame one. She finds one and becomes great friends with it. She is even still alive over 80 years old today! I made a connection because people today are still trying to save endangered species. I give this book 4 stars because it shows that preserving animal life is important.

If you really like learning about people these are the books for you.I liked this book a lot and I did a report on her.I really connected with this book because I really love animals.
