Who can fly the highest? ""I can,"" claim the lark and the dove, the vulture--and of course the mighty eagle. With a great flapping of wings, and squawking and calling, the birds take to the air. It is a glorious contest, but the outcome surprises them all--especially the mighty eagle!Jane Goodall retells a beloved story from her own childhood --a fable for all times that illustrates how we depend on each other for help and support throughout our lives.
Dr. Jane Goodall, DBE, UN Messenger of Peace, and founder of the Jane Goodall Institute shares virtual readings of some of her favorite books for children every week from her home in Bournemouth, England!

Dr. Jane reads 'Eagle & the Wren', taking us to flight with a community of birds.
Rickie the chimpanzee lived happily with her mother in the rain forests of Central Africa, warm and safe until the day the hunters came and took Rickie away to sell at a Congolese market. Fortunately, she was rescued by a kind man who adopted Rickie and cared for her. Best of all, he provided an unexpected friend in his dog, Henri.
This true story of friendship is heartwarmingly brought to life by renowned scientist, conservationist, and peace activist Dr. Jane Goodall.
