Jane Goodall is one of the most important figures in the history of primatology. The journey followed in this volume serves both to explain what her decades studying chimpanzees consisted of or which were her main discoveries, and is also a way of transmitting important values such as respect for animal life and the environment. Both the register of the narrative and the style of the images, as well as the balance between the two, are appropriate for schoolchildren between 8 and 11 years old.
The text and the images make sure to deal with pedagogical threads that traverse the characters’ scope of activity, especially those regarding respect for animal life and ecology, both for family readings at home and at school, supporting the educational program. Additionally, throughout the narrative the reader will find all the information necessary to appropriately situate the figure in their socio-historical context. The final pages of the book contain a summarized biography of the character and a chronological account of her contributions to the discipline, alongside other prominent figures.
