Me...Jane  by Patrick McDonnell

by Patrick McDonnell

A charming snapshot of the a young Jane Goodall-- famed conservationist and humanitarian --and her early passion for animals which ultimately led to her remarkable career. With anecdotes taken directly from Jane Goodall's autobiography, McDonnell makes this very true story accessible for the very young--and young at heart.

In a starred review, Booklist said, "This remarkable picture book is one of the few that speaks, in a meaningful way, to all ages." And Kirkus said "Children will appreciate McDonnell's original format and take heart that interests logged in their own diaries might turn into lifelong passions."
