I thought this was a lovely interview with Jane Goodall and two children’s book authors that wrote and illustrated books about Jane’s life. Jane Goodall talks a lot about how her interest in science developed through close observations and curiosity about the world around her. My favorite story is about how she hid in a chicken coop for hours because she wanted to see for herself how a hen could lay something as strange as an egg. Enjoy!
