Patrick McDonnell. I fell in love with it. It is geared towards very young children, the story beginning with tiny Jane and her trusty plush chimpanzee sharing every experience, everyday, including dreaming about the future. By the end of the book that future has become a reality. The illustrations are very simple and easy to look at. There is even a two-page spread of sketches from young Jane Goodall's nature notebook. Me...Jane is a beautiful little book that I recommend all of you find and read (that is why I wanted to make this post in the first place; to share with you!).
"The life of each one of us matters in the scheme of things, and I encourage everyone, especially young people, to make the world a better place for people, animals, and the environment."
-Jane Goodall, Me...Jane by Patrick McDonnell
