Synopsis

In this biography for kids, discover the inspiring story of Jane Goodall, whose work with chimpanzees changed the way we understand animals and ourselves. Jane Goodall was a pioneer of primatology through her groundbreaking work with chimpanzees in Africa. When she embarked on her career, women were discouraged from conducting scientific research, especially when that work meant living side by side with wild animals. A self-taught scientist, Jane bravely ventured out into the bush of Tanzania to learn about the secret world of chimpanzees. Discover how, through perseverance and perceptive observation, she gained access to these elusive creatures and discovered that they are not so different from us.Life Stories is an inspirational new biography series from DK that goes beyond the basic facts to tell the true life stories of history's most interesting people. Full-colour photographs and fun hand-drawn illustrations complement thoughtfully written, age-appropriate text to create an engaging book children will enjoy reading. These in-depth biographies feature maps, inspirational quotes, and information sidebars that expand on fascinating topics mentioned in the main story. A handy reference section at the back explains key terms, with definition boxes popping up throughout the text. Coming in an array of colourful covers, this is the one biography series everyone will want to collect.
