Rickie & Henri

Click the image below to enjoy this week’s reading.

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.
