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.

Pretty and sweet. I loved the pictures, and the "extras" at the end were wonderful. The kids seemed to enjoy this book, but I realized that my nephew might have too much "stuff." When little girl Jane went to bed with her stuffed monkey, he asked, "Amy, she only has *one* stuffed toy?!?" Oh dear...

4.0 Me . . . Jane
This was a lovely, sweet book. Until the very last page, when it hit me like a ton of bricks and my eyes filled with tears. Such a wonderful ending, such a hopeful book.
