this biography book is good because it has been very carefully researched. I believe that it is authentic with its writing and makes the subject seem alive! The background is evident and everything they talk about is believable and fascinating. I like how a lot of different points are discussed through the subject and I believe it shows all aspects, both ups and downs of what happened.

I think any kid in early childhood classrooms would enjoy this book. It would be a good book to integrate science and literature. Kids would be able to find it fascinating and enjoyable with its fun, entertaining context it provides. I believe kids could learn a lot from it and find it exciting!

This book was published in 2013, and falls under the category of nonfiction. This book covers some of the concepts of evolution, but also the progression of people and animals. By this I mean the progression of these animals, including humans, in their habitats.
Aside from this, the book is set up in a comic type of way. There are constant illustrations on every page outlining what the words. I like this type of set up, and enjoyed this book.

em_lemo A quote that I enjoyed within this book is,
“Boys, Jane Goodall has made...well, she's made good.“
I liked this because I was able to have a little bit of insight on something that I do not know much about, but know some about Jane Goodall.

I think this book would be very controversial to some parents because it does discuss evolution in a way. However, I do believe it is essential for the classroom.

Because there is such a vast gulf between standard #BookTube fare and what I own, I've been doing a thing where I will mark any book I own "To Read" on Litsy if any BookTuber mentions it in any context. Emily Graslie may not technically be a BookTuber, but whatever, she's awesome and I can't wait to read this book! #TheBrainScoop

A graphic novel about Jane Goodall is so neat. Kids may be bored by the science and research that could be too advanced for them, but this is a good way to get them to learn about an important discovery and the scientific process.

#TimbitTunes Day 27: Escaping the #MoneyCityManiacs, these intrepid women explorers Jane Goodall, Dian Fossey, and Birute Galdikas went into the woods and conducted their fearless science there. It was a good introduction to the lives of these three women who devoted their scientific study to chimpanzees, gorillas, and orangutans respectively. My review along with other Jane Goodall biographies: https://wp.me/pDlzr-bxG

This was really good! I‘ve read about Goodall and Fossey before, but nothing about Galdikas (though I‘ve now added one of her books to my tbr!). Because it‘s a fairly short graphic novel that covers all three women, it skips a lot of detail, but I really enjoyed the information that was there, and I loved the illustrations! There is also a very nice bibliography included at the end. Beautiful graphic novel about three amazing women.

You know what soothes the book slump woes? Allowing yourself to be absolutely charmed by a graphic novel! This was so lovely! A simplified but in no way simplistic look at the lives of these three women studying primates. Lovely art and just a wonderful reading experience. I actually know very little about Birute, but I have copies of Reflections of Eden and Gorillas in the Mist (never read it, but still more familiar with Dian) to get to.

BellaBookNook @EvieBee It‘s fantastic and the writing is pretty good. A good foundation for my son and I to talk about so many things. 2y

I didn't know much about Jane Goodall, and I didn't know anything about Dian Fossey and Birute Galdikas, so this comicbook was a really great introduction. At times surprising, funny, sad (relating to the necessity for conservation), humbling, and inspiring.

I'm going for a more figurative interpretation. Louis Leakey had the backs of Jane Goodall, Dian Fossey, and Birutė Galdikas. When science was *particularly* dominated by men, these women became pioneers in their fields of research partially due to Leakey's initial support. Do you have an alternative to #thebacksofwomen? #marchintorreading
(And yes yes, good morning, Oskar. You may snuggle now.)

A cute look at some real world scientists. Remembering that it is targeted at children, the basic storyline js good but I wish it had gone a little more in depth into the three characters instead of just touching on their careers. That said, the art was beautiful and fun, and I walked away smiling!

A little short, but I liked the interweaving of three stories and three different types of primate study. Poor Dian Fossey 😕 If you know a young girl interested in science or STEM, this would make a great gift!
