3rd April Jane Goodall (1934)

There are many non-fiction biographies for young children on the subject of Jane Goodall, the noted primatologist and anthropologist who worked with chimpanzees in the forests of Africa. She dreamed of working with animals while still a child, so her story is particularly inspiring to young children. For my young audience I prefer to use beautiful picture book biographies together with these factual, photographic timeline books. Our library has Me... Jane by Patrick McDonnell and The Watcher by Jeanette Winter, both of which start with Jane as a child.
