Book Review

I enjoyed answering the questions

Cedar: I thought the book was good because it was about a real life person (Jane Goodall) I found the story about her life interesting on how she became a scientist and that she actually lived with the chimpanzees for a long time even taking her family to live there.

I liked how the pages had pictures and facts on and each page was easy to look at. I also liked that it has questions to answer which I found fun.

Mum: A great factual book and easy to read to younger children about ‘real life’ people and their stories. Each page was broken down in to written parts and pictures. We were able to discuss who Jane was and looked her up online also to find her photo. It can be read over a few days or in one go like we did.
