Me. . . Jane by Patrick McDonnell
Me. . .Jane, however, is fantastic. It's garnered numerous starred reviews from the professional review sources and I think it deserves every one of them.
The story details Jane Goodall's early life and fascination with animals (particularly chimps). The text is very brief and to the point - it's short enough that I can read it to Ella without her losing interest.
And the illustrations. Oh, they are so sweet and friendly and beautiful. The images themselves are as noteworthy as the topic and when the two are combined, it's a killer duo.
This one is worth picking up.
