The Watcher: Jane Goodall's Life with Chimps by Jeanette Winter - ESSENTIAL

Winter, Jeanette The Watcher: Jane Goodall's Life with Chimps 48 pg. Schwartz & Wade, 2011. PICTURE/NON-FICTION. $17.99. This is a wonderful biography about the life of Jane Goodall and her life with the chimpanzees. Without being too wordy and without being too skimpy, this biography highlights Jane's life as an avid observer. Although other aspects of her life are mentioned in the authors note, the main text of the book focuses on Goodall's accomplishments with the chimpanzees. It is a fascinating story that will intrigue students. With vividly colored illustrations and simple text, this would be a perfect book to introduce young students to biographies, the power of observation, or simply to the life of Jane Goodall. EL-ESSENTIAL. Whitney, Library-Teacher.
