While Me...Jane was a very easy read, the real story of Jane Goodall is missing. This book tells of Jane's love of animals from a small age, however, misses most of the good work she has done, and leaves out the organizations that made her mote worthy. Only in the authors note are Jane's foundations and organizations mentioned. While I do believe introducing a reader to an important figure as a child is important, I felt that Me...Jane was lacking much important information about Jane Goodall's life work. ( )

Jubillee was Jane's stuffed animal that she loved and took everywhere. She loved to be outside and learn about animals and plants. She later becomes the Jane Goodall that we know today.

This picture book tells a brief story of Jane Goodall as a little girl. It includes two pages of Jane's own childhood artwork and etchings from the time period interspersed through the pages. The illustrator's work is great and the period additions help make this book even more amazing.

The story itself is an inspiring one for little ones. It talks about Jane's love of animals as a child and her activities, then shows Jane as a grown up working with animals. There are also two notes-one on Jane's life as an adult and one from her about the work she does with children.

All in all a nice book. ( )

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.
