Summary: This is the story of Jane Goodall as a child.
Review: McDonnell makes a approachable introduction to the young life of Goodall. I think this book would intrigue young readers to learn more about this great woman.
This book also gives an important message: the impact we all have, we can all change the world for the better. This message would easily lend itself to a lesson including a writing assignment on "what would you like to do to help others?"

This is the story of the young Jane Goodall and how it all started with her stuffed chimpanzee. As she observes the world her dream is to help all animals. Before she knows it her dream has come true. A wonderful story about a wonderful person. Jane Goodall's story is one to be heard by all and children will benefit tremendously from it. It would also make a great book for biography day. I love the media used in the illustrations. I would recommend for grades 1 and up. ( )

Book description
Wonderfully illustrated, Caldecott Honor, this is a biography of Jane Goodall's childhood.  It describes how Jane's life connection to nature and dedication to learning inspired and lead to her life long dream of living in Africa and working with chimpanzees.  I agree with one of the reviewers and would want to include a story or worksheet that detailed Jane's accomplishments.

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0316045462, Hardcover)

In his characteristic heartwarming style, Patrick McDonnell tells the story of the young Jane Goodall and her special childhood toy chimpanzee named Jubilee. As the young Jane observes the natural world around her with wonder, she dreams of "a life living with and helping all animals," until one day she finds that her dream has come true.

One of the world's most inspiring women, Dr. Jane Goodall is a renowned humanitarian, conservationist, animal activist, environmentalist, and United Nations Messenger of Peace. In 1977 she founded the Jane Goodall Institute (JGI), a global nonprofit organization that empowers people to make a difference for all living things.

With anecdotes taken directly from Jane Goodall's autobiography, McDonnell makes this very true story accessible for the very young--and young at heart.
