THE CHIMPANZEES I LOVE : SAVING
THEIR WORLD AND OURS
New York : Scholastic Press,
IL 3-6, RL 5.7
you know that the chimpanzee is the animal that is most like humans?
They have thumbs like we do, they use tools like we do, they even have
families and feelings much like we do. Chimpanzees live mainly in
Africa, and although there used to be many thousands of chimps in the wild,
today there are very few left. Poachers kill them for their pelts
and for their value as souvenirs. There is hope for the chimpanzee,
however. A woman named Jane Goodall is a researcher who has studied
chimpanzees in their natural habitat, and she has written many interesting
books about them. Her newest book is called The Chimpanzees I Love:
Saving Their World and Ours. Sure, you say, saving the chimpanzee
might be important, but what does it have to do with saving my world?
Read this book and you may learn that all living things – even down to
the chimpanzees – have to rely on each other.
