When executed with expertise, a well-written and illustrated biography can be just the book to hook young readers. This year, Jane Goodall, the famous British primatologist and conservationist, is the subject of two wonderful picture books: Me … Jane, written and illustrated by Patrick McDonnell; and The Watcher: Jane Goodall’s Life With the Chimps, Written and illustrated by Jeanette Winter. Environmentalist, primatologist, humanitarian, and United Nations Messenger of Peace, Jane Goodall makes for a wonderful role model—especially for girls. Both of these books, while showcasing Goodall’s brilliant and dedicated work with artistic differences, highlight how a childhood dream can become a reality.
