"... she read and reread the books about Tarzan of the Apes ..."
Me…Jane
by Patrick McDonnell
Kids Wings Top Flight Book
2012 Caldecott Honor Book

Jane Goodall had a dream.
The dream started with a stuffed chimpanzee.
The dream grew when she was outside watching birds, squirrels, and insects.
When she watched the animals, she became curious.
Her curiosity led her to read about them.
The world around her became magical, full of joy and wonder.
Where would her dream take her?
Why did her dreams become prayers?
What did she do when she grew up that no one else had ever done?
Why are books written about her?

Me…Jane by Patrick McDonnell was chosen as a 2012 Caldecott Honor Book for telling her story in pictures. Through his book, Mr. McDonnell shares her heart for the beauty of the earth and its animals.
