Jeanette Winter's book The Watcher: Jane Goodhall's Life With The Chimps is the story of iconic conservationist and researcher Jane Goodhall. A young girl who grew watching and observing and loving nature around her, Jane particularly loved animals. As a young lady, she got the chance to learn more about chimpanzees in Tanzania. She pitched a tent and waited patiently for them and was surprised at their intelligence and gentleness when she interacted with them.
The story also traces the degrees to which Jane was ready to go to learn more about her favourite chimps. A wonderful book about pursuing one's dreams, being a doer and lifelong learner. Jeanette Winters captures the essence of Jane - her lifelong passion to understand and conserve the animals that inhabit our planet- in this wonderful book. Highly recommended for children aged 4-8 years.
The watcher is the winner of the Booklist Children’s Editors’ Choice (2011), Junior Library Guild Selection (2011) and Kirkus Reviews Best Children Books (2011)
