REVIEW: Untamed: The Wild Life of Jane Goodall

Our blog review of the day looks at Elementary/Middle Grade Nonfiction finalist Untamed: The Wild Life of Jane Goodall by Anita Silvey. This fascinating look at the life of the naturalist who brought chimpanzees into the limelight makes a fascinating contrast to the graphic novel Primates, says EMNF category chair Jennifer Wharton. She reviewed the book last summer on her blog Jean Little Library, and said:

“The book is laid out in a large chapter book format with plenty of photographs, quotations, and additional facts and interesting highlights of Jane Goodall’s life and contemporaries. National Geographic is really good about putting their nonfiction into attractive formats and this is no exception.”
