different chapters the reader learns more about Chimpanzees' habitats, what they eat, how they live, and problems facing these human-like animals.

In a classroom I could use this book in several ways. This book could be used to show a strong female over coming sexism to pursue her interests. It also shows her determination, having no experience or education on how to conduct research, to follow her dreams. This book could also be used to start an interest group project. Students might want to choose an animal and learn about its environment, habits, food, etc.
