Katherine Kellgren’s narration, along with delightful music, adds considerably to this Caldecott Honor-winning biography of primatologist Jane Goodall. Kellgren’s rhythmic delivery tracks the adventures of young Jane and her stuffed monkey, Jubliee. Kellgren’s reading is bright as Jane scurries into the garden, dragging the chimp behind her. Her tones turn pensive, the music somber, as Jane carefully observes nature. When Jane sneaks into her aunt’s chicken coop, Kellgren adds suspense through pauses as if to witness the miracle that a laying chicken performs for Jane. Soon, the reading and music move at a sprightly pace again, slowing only as Jane falls asleep. S.W. Winner of AudioFile Earphones Award © AudioFile 2014, Portland, Maine [Published: NOVEMBER 2014]
