Who would have thought that a picture book could be both a bedtime story and inspirational biography? In the hands of Patrick McDonnell, comic creator of Mutts, this picture book is sure to become a classic for readers of all ages.

The title is a clever play on, "Me Tarzan, You Jane." Me...Jane tells the story of Jane Goodall as a little girl and her toy gorilla, Jubilee. Jane loves the outdoors and dreams from an early age of being able to help animals. McDonnell brings the world of young Jane to life in a wonderful combination of his drawings, antique bookplate illustrations, photographs, and even some of Goodall's own drawings. Me...Jane is a captivating read, and the image at the end with Jane Goodall waking up to her dream come true is perfect.

Who wouldn't love a book about the amazing Jane Goodall? This is nicely illustrated and shows children just how something as simple as a toy monkey can inspire someone to do great things in life. Our daughter is 6 and has been carrying her toy monkey around since she was 5 months old, and so she really related to this book and asked for us to read it again the next evening. For our family, it s a nice addition to our children's library.

Format: Hardcover
A real-life story of a little girl named Jane, who grew up to be the renowned chimpanzee biologist and environmental educator Jane Goodall. Little ones with an affinity for animals and nature will understand Jane's love of being outside and observing nature. The book retells some of Jane's first pivotal observations like seeing a hen lay an egg, hugging a tree named Beech, and seeming to feel the flow of sap of a tree along with the beat of her own heart. Jane's awe of the natural world and her sure sense of being a part of it are the type of centering knowledge that every parent wishes for their child. The book is a biography that reads like a story. An inspirational life for all, and particularly good as an example of a strong, smart, unique, and powerful women for girls.
