    Jane Goodall is an amazing person She was one of the people who started the movement of caring for the planet The most interesting fact I got from this book was she read the book ‘Doctor Doolittle’ as a child and she loved that book dearly She read it 3 times before returning it to the library and that’s when she wanted to work with animals That was the start of her dreaming big She also got a stuffed Monkey as a child called Jubilee She was a very patient child She wanted to know how a chicken laid an egg and so she buried herself in the straw of the henhouse and waited hours watching the hens until she saw the egg laid It’s amazing that a child has that much patienceJane was so amazing and willing to strike out on her own She was a woman doing something women weren’t supposed to do Nothing would stop her I love to see women with that story I want to live that way too I have gotten through most of this series It is really so great for kids The nephew was amazed by this He wanted to do some of this stuff and I told him he doesn’t have the ability to be that still He’s too wiggly and working with animals you have to be still He told me he was able to be still Anyway He gave this 4 starsJane has a great national group for teens called Roots and Shoots to help work with animals There is a website so check it out

    It was a pleasant read full of colorful illustrations Dr Jane Goodall is one of my favorite human beings for she cares for nature and animals while others are destroying our mother earth in many evil ways I have been following her activities on social media for a long time She is such a kind soul As a matter of fact this world needs Jane GoodallWhile roaming through the GR homepage I found Brad Meltzer's book written about her as a form of biography for school kids and I believe it would inspire children in many ways ranging from being kind to being ambitious at the same time Dr Jane Goodall was a very ordinary kid who never finished her graduation however she made a great difference in this world because she knew perfectly well what she wants and she stuck up to that dream

    I like these books They are excellent introduction to some truly extraordinary people It is a wide range of people there are men women entertainers scientists civil rights leaders etc I get the idea behind having the subject look like a kid throughout the whole story but it does make it difficult to figure out a timeline

    My Biography WOW book that I chose is “I Am Jane Goodall” written by Brad Meltzer Illustrations by Christopher Eliopoulos This book describes the life of Jane Goodall and how she grew up fascinated with animals which led her to eventually go to Africa and study animals Jane Goodall was 23 years old when she first went to Africa and her love of animals only grew after meeting Dr Louis Leakey an anthropologist and paleontologist who hired her as a secretary and invited her to study chimpanzees Jane Goodall studied chimpanzees at what is now the Gombe National Park in Tanzania Africa and after being extremely patient and observant she was able to learn that contrary to what scientists formerly thought chimpanzees had “personalities” were intelligent and had behaviors similar to humans Jane Goodall showed the world that animals have personalities and complex relationships and that to learn new things it’s important to “break the status uo” and trust your gut rather than what everyone tells you that you should or shouldn’t doThis book is geared toward students in 3rd Grade and includes pictures and heavy text with some dialogue in “text bubbles” I would use this book in my classroom by using it as a read aloud to connect with science instruction on ecosystems and animals I could also pair this book with a discussion about important women in history and bring in other literature about other important women in history Also there are other “I am ” books written by Brad Meltzer about important historical figures so I could even use multiple of his books to have my students do a Classroom Museum where each of my students has a different historical figure that they have to read about dress up as and present to their other classmatesThis book was a WOW book for me because I also grew up with a strong love of animals so I could relate to Jane Goodall’s desire to learn about them and research them I also was surprised by the fact that I had never learned about Jane Goodall until I was introduced to this book in ELM 335 because I had heard the name Jane Goodall before but never knew why she was important I also was just wowed by the content and illustration of this book and the others written by Brad Meltzer because I think they are informative books but also so much fun to read and look at If I had these books in elementary school I think I would have read every single one that I could find

    At first I wasn’t uite looking forward to reading a book of the biography genre However after being introduced to Brad Meltzer’s “Ordinary People Change the World” series of biographies by none other than my lovely reading methods professor Dr Ann Harrington my outlook on this genre brightened up Jane’s story embodies the idea of chasing your dreams despite what society may attempt to limit you to Meltzer’s I am Jane Goodall would be appropriate for third graders as they are getting introduced to the ideas of autobiographies and biographiesOne way in which I could incorporate this book into my instruction is use the “Guess Yes or No” comprehension framework Before my students read the book I would have them answer uestions in which they would use prior knowledge or simply make an educated guess As they read the book they will refer back to their guesses and decipher which ones they got correct and which ones they did not If they did get one of the statements wrong they would simply change it to match the correct answer I would also like to use this biography as a way to start a discourse about primary and secondary sources I would likely have students read this book and an actual autobiography After which students could complete compare and contrast bubblesOne reason I fell in love with this book is because it defies the “norms” and restraints which society often tries to put on who you are and what you are able to achieve No matter your age race nationality gender class or etc you should be allowed the opportunity to pursue whatever you feel defines your happiness “What you do makes a difference and you have to decide what kind of difference you want to make” Jane Goodall

    This series is my favorite go to present for children but this one in particular is my favorite It's the one my daughter gravitates to and even inspired her Halloween costume Jane Goodall's passion for animal is contagious but what I really appreciate the most is her curiosity and not allowing obstacles to get in her way of discovery She is a god I just love her This book really dives into her childhood which I wasn't expecting to in a book geared for children I even find this series much engaging than the popular Good Night Stories for Rebel Girls but this is written by a male but nonetheless it's gold Great book and great series

    While this is my first book read in the series I'm fascinated by the text and illustrations with my only caveat that the main character the illustrious Jane Goodall remains small childlike throughout the story of her exploration of chimpanzees in the wild I was a bit off put by that but assume all are like that in this biographical series? Otherwise great synopsis of the elemental ways that she contributed to science for women about primates studying in the natural world etc
