Big Ideas for Little Environmentalists: Conservation with Jane Goodall
Author: Maureen McQuerry
Illustrator: Robin Rosenthal
Even little children can make a positive impact on the environment. Jane Goodall has dedicated her life to studying chimpanzees, and realized that sometimes people hurt the places where animals have always lived. She began to teach others how we can enjoy nature while also making sure that the homes of animals aren't suffering. Kids will come away from this book with questions about what animal habitats they can care for in their own community, and how conservation work makes sure all people and animals have a healthy home. Look for the other books in the Big Ideas for Little Environmentalists series: Restoration with Wangari Maathai, Preservation with Aldo Leopold, and Ecosystems with Rachel Carson.
