Happy 89th birthday to pioneering British primatologist and anthropologist Jane Goodall! A trailblazer in the study of chimpanzee behavior, Dr. Goodall is known worldwide for her animal welfare and conservation efforts, and the establishment of the Jane Goodall Institute. She has been named Dame Commander of the Order of the British Empire and a UN Messenger of Peace. The Jane Goodall Institute, founded in 1977, is a non-profit that works to increase global awareness and understanding about the natural world, and in particular the lives and habitats of primates. To this day, Goodall still travels to Gombe frequently and actively encourages the involvement of youth around the world in conservation work, particularly through her "Roots and Shoots" program.

To introduce young children to this trailblazing scientist, we highly recommend the board books "I Am Caring: A Little Book about Jane Goodall" for ages 1 to 4 (https://www.amightygirl.com/i-am-caring) and "Where's Jane" for ages 2 to 5 (https://www.amightygirl.com/where-s-jane), the picture book "Jane Goodall" for ages 5 to 8 (https://www.amightygirl.com/jane-goodall), and the chapter book "Jane Goodall" for ages 4 to 7 (https://www.amightygirl.com/jane-goodall-champion)

For older children and teens, we recommend "Who is Jane Goodall" for ages 8 to 12 (https://www.amightygirl.com/who-is-jane-goodall), an autobiography by Goodall for readers 8 and up entitled "My Life with the Chimpanzees" (https://www.amightygirl.com/my-life-with-the-chimpanzees), and the graphic novel “Primates” for ages 12 and up (https://www.amightygirl.com/primates)

Adult readers may appreciate the following works by Dr. Goodall herself: "The Book of Hope: A Survival Guide for Trying Times" (https://amzn.to/2PTVhUl), "In the Shadow of Man" (http://amzn.to/1pFBNcv), and "Reason for Hope: A Spiritual Journey" (http://amzn.to/1uPdiAG)

Jane Goodall is also the focus of a new LEGO Tribute Building Set for ages 10 and up at https://www.amightygirl.com/lego-jane-goodall

For children's books that celebrate more pioneering female environmentalists, visit our blog post "25 Kids' Books About Female Environmentalists" at https://www.amightygirl.com/blog?p=14831

And for kids for want to pretend to be Jane, we recommend the 'Chimpanzee Care & Nurture Vet Set' for ages 3 and up at https://www.amightygirl.com/nat-geo-chimp-care

This stunning image from NASA's James Webb Space Telescope reveals a protostar – the beginnings of a new star – in the act of creation. The protostar itself is hidden from view within the “neck” of this hourglass shape. An edge-on protoplanetary disk is seen as a dark line across the middle of the neck. Light from the protostar leaks above and below this disk, illuminating cavities within the surrounding gas and dust.

Today January 27th is International Holocaust Remembrance Day, marking the anniversary of the Allied liberation of Auschwitz-Birkenau, the largest N**i death camp, 77 years ago.

The day of remembrance is held each year to honor the millions of lives lost during the Holocaust at the hands of the N**is, as well as remembering those who died in genocides that followed in Cambodia, Rwanda, Bosnia, and Darfur.

I learned so much about the Holocaust when researching my book with Nomad Press, The Holocaust: Racism and Genocide in World War II. An important piece of the world's history for all of us! https://nomadpress.net/nomadpress-books/holocaust/

Hey, we've made it to Friday! It's been a busy week here with sketches for a new book for Nomad Press, Climate in Crisis written by Carla Mooney. Here's a little sneaky peek at the intro illustration. This is a very important topic, and we've learned a lot by reading through this to create the comic strip chapter openers. Every little bit we can do for our planet helps.

Feel free to share things we can do in our every day lives to help. Earth thanks you!
