" Wonderfully curated information by Anita Silvey that perfectly introduces Jane Goodall to a new generation of readers. Goodall is a fresh, vibrant, and relevant as ever. An essential purchase. Grades 4-7. " said.

" I'm so glad to be able to give five stars to an author who has so influenced me. This would make a great text for teaching children the features of non-fiction and modeling non-fiction narrative writing. Nobody can do photography like National Geographic. Maybe this will garner a Siebert. " said.

" Untamed gives a solid introduction to Jane Goodall. While it doesn't go into a wealth of detail, Goodall's philosophy of animal study and protection shines through. As to be expected from a National Geographic book, the layout is visually appealing. I would recommend for grades 4-7. " said.

" A great middle-grade nonfiction choice, Untamed tells the story of Jane Goodall and the chimpanzees that she dedicated her life to studying. The text is complemented by an array of gorgeous photographs, infographics, and maps that will appeal to visual learners. Highly recommend this for grades 5-8. " said.

" Beautiful photos from an interesting life. Her occupational calling was so strong from such an early age -we should all be so fortunate. There was a good description of her childhood and scientific career but very little about her personality. It makes me want to seek out an autobiography written for an adult audience. " said.

" Gorgeous and inspirational. The layout and design are has good as the information and storytelling. Get this book in the hands of young readers, especially young women, and you will have done and good deed and helped our planet. Our world is a better place because of Jane Goodall, and National Geographic's commitment to conservation and education is evident in Untamed. " said.

" 4.5 stars. Who can resist the baby chimp photo on the front cover? Clean and neat layout of text and fabulous nature photos - more chimps - in this bio of the famous researcher. I didn't know she got her start so young. Extensive back matter. For readers who are ready for more than The Watcher by Jeanette Winter but not quite ready for Goodall's books. " said.

" A comprehensive biography with fabulous photography should provide students in grades 4 and up with a true appreciation of this pioneering natural scientist. It is easy to follow Goodall's progress from the child who adores animals, to the earnest observer of chimpanzees and on to the woman on a mission to save the planet. An excellent addition to the biography shelf. " said.
