I would consider this book more appropriate for an older child who is ready to talk about subjects such as this. Probably not suitable for your younger children (ours is almost 4).

I love this book because it tells you how important and endangered some animals are. Also because now I know that someone else loves animals and wants to protect them as much as I do. It was interesting how Jane Goodall got a job and saved her own money so she could take a boat to Africa to study the chimps.
