Untamed: The Wild Life of Jane Goodall
I like this book because I want to do a presentation on Jane Goodall. She is a woman who studies chimpanzees. This book has “Jane’s Tips For Kids Who Want to Work With Animals,” like, “watch animals and see what they do,” “keep a notebook and write down observations,” and “come up with ideas about why animals are behaving the way they are.” I enjoyed reading about how Jane Goodall talked to chimpanzees in Africa. She said that they would have a “conversation of ‘chimp—chimp—and more chimp.’” I smiled when I read that part! Did you know there is new technology for photographing wild animals called “camera traps”? There are many beautiful photographs through this whole book. I also enjoyed the timeline of Jane Goodall’s life near the end of this book. When she was five years old, Jane hid in a henhouse for a long time to learn about chickens laying eggs! That’s the funny part. She spent her life learning about animals and finding ways to help them. I think that this book would be good for kids and grownups.
