Did anybody catch Dr. Jane Goodall on “The Daily Show” earlier this week? The renowned primatologist was on the show to promote Disney’s new movie, “Chimpanzees.” Um, how adorable is that trailer?
I’m always amazed when I stop to think about Jane’s incredible life. She has basically lived the dream she imagined for herself when she was a young girl–to live with and help animals. Her adventures as a child with her stuffed chimpanzee, Jubilee, are the subject of an illustrated book called Me . . . Jane by Patrick McDonnell.
I think this sweet picture book, which is based on Jane Goodall’s autobiography, would make a lovely addition to a little one’s library, especially with Earth Day coming up this weekend!
