I didn’t really like the book to much due to the fact the it jumps so far in the end. I do think the pictures are interesting. This story is about Jane Goodall. Jane had a toy chimpanzee named Jubilee while growing up. Jane loved to be outside. One day she wanted to know where eggs come from. She hung out in the chicken coop to find out. She named her favorite tree beach. Jane loves to read the story of Tarzan and Jane. She dreams of being in Africa. As an adult Jana makes it to Africa. Teachers can do a printable word find for students. Techers can also give students a chimpanzee coloring page. ( )

Kids and adults alike will like the book. It gives some fresh new perspective of Jane Goodall and what her childhood was like. This book is a great way to introduce biographies to young children. The illustration is a perfect mirror of Jane's sweet sentient.

The book is about a young girl named Jane who loves animals. She would study them and dream that one day she would get to explore in the real world. In the end, Jane wakes up and realizes her dream came true.

This is a narrative biography picture book about Jane Goodall. This biography only tells of the young Jane who is interested in chimpanzees from a very early age. She is a natural desire to observe and be around animals. This picture book includes real anecdotes taken from Jane Goodall's real journal. With lots of information, this biographical text is highly accessible for early readers.

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.
