    1. Did anyone make an effort to edit the text? I usually love seeing what Jane Goodall has to put out about her research, but while the pictures were great, the text left something to be desired.

    2. The pictures are great, but the text leaves a lot to be desired. Goodall tries to tell a story about a "day" (which she tells you up front is really a collection of situations over several weeks) in the life of someone who watches the chimpanzees, especially the children. I think the book would be much stronger of she had written about the chimpanzees and their environment without trying to make it a story.

    3. I've admired Jane and her work all my life, so I'm obviously biased whenever another book about her work is published. However, this one really is quite special, including actual photographs. Jane gives you a personal tour through the forest to give you a picture of what a day with these chimpanzee families is like.

Professional Recommendation/Review #1:Ilene Cooper (Booklist, Dec. 1, 2014 (Vol. 111, No. 7)) There have been many books about or by Goodall, who has now clocked in more th [...]

    5. Jane Goodall invites young readers to spend some time in the Gombe National Park in Tanzania with the chimpanzee families she has been studying for decades. Readers are introduced to two chimpanzee families, F-family and G-family, who are all named with that letter as the first in their name. So there are Ferdinand, Faustino and Fifi and also Gremlin, Galahad and Gaia. Goodall shows similarities between humans and chimpanzees, including greeting each other with kisses, having mothers who are goo [...]

    6. This was a pleasant discovery on the S.T.E.A.M. display at my local library. It is written as if Goodall were talking to the reader, explaining the pictures in a photo album. Her focus is on the F- and G-families to whom we are introduced in a group photo. We learn much about the many ways chimpanzees are similar to people and how they develop within their family groups. The only question the book prompted was about the particulars of the naming convention. Though not hard to guess, online I fou [...]

    7. If you ever wanted evidence that one person can make a difference, just look at Jane Goodall's life. This book has a premise of it being one day in Gombe, but it is explained at the beginning that the pictures were taken over a period of years. The photographs are simply amazing, and I think children will readily identify with the families of chimpanzees and the sheer beauty of Africa. And then, if they want to continue learning more, the notes at the end have information on the various do-goode [...]

    8. I loved the wonderful photographs. I had issues with the text though. Several. The formatting was strange for children. There were no indents for paragraphs. The were some errors too like a random ? in the middle of a sentence. I also didn't think it made sense when she talked of her own son, there were pictures of children that were not her son. At first I wondered if she had married a Tanzanian since the boys in the picture were black. Anyway, it could be confusing for young readers.The storyt [...]

    9. Jane Goodall is an amazing advocate and scientist. While this books has some flaws (forced format, some awkward text), the photographs are fascinating. Everyone who reads this book will learn something new -- baboons and chimpanzees play together, Gremlin is the only chimpanzee that Jane Goodall has seen successfully raise twins -- and students of all ages will be fascinated with this portrait of a chimpanzee family's day

    10. I enjoyed the full color, full page photographs and the narrative text, but I thought that the photos were sometimes difficult to discern the action described. The text also mentions baboons that interact with chimpanzees as well as some other animals and flora found in Gombe. The pictures would generate good discussion about chimpanzee behavior.

    11. Jane Goodall – The Chimpanzee Children of Gombe by Jane Goodall, photos by Michael Neugebauer – really cute story packed with facts and examples of the lives of the chimpanzee children that Jane Goodall has observed over the years.

    12. Wonderful photographs capture the expressive faces, gestures, play and relationships of chimpanzees in Gombe. Text is accessible for early elementary age children.What I learned: I didn't know that young chimps and young baboons would play together (love the photo of two holding hands). Cool!

    13. Gorgeous photos of chimp families, mostly at play can't make up for the text, which while earnest and showing true affection for the subject, was rambling and disjointed.

    14. This is a very pretty book with gentle text that invites children to observe the chimps and other natural wonders of the Gombe.

    15. Lovely BUT Did anyone else find it off-putting that the spread that compares human children and chimpanzee children uses only photos of African children?
