"Each picture book in this series is a biography of a significant historical figure, told in a simple, conversational, vivacious way, and always focusing on a character trait that makes the person a role model for kids. The heroes are depicted as children throughout, telling their life stories in first-person present tense, which keeps the books playful and accessible to young children. And each book ends with a line of encouragement, a direct quote, photos, a timeline, and a source list. This tenth book in the series features Jane Goodall, the scientist and conservationist who is famous for her work with chimpanzees."

My son is 2.5yrs old and at first I thought there was no way he would even sit through me reading this, but he did and now he begs me to read it to him 2 or more times a day

Accessible and engaging true story for early grades, about a little girl who loved animals and grew up to be a great scientist -- something in her time that was rare indeed!
