( I liked the illustrations too!)
A great read for any child, this book encourages them to follow their inherently creative, inquisitive instincts to find answers to anything they're curious about, as well as to foster a love and respect for animals and our environment. It's a wonderful tribute to Jane Goodall, of course, and any adult who respects her work would enjoy it as well.
It's the story of Jane Goodall as a young girl and her stuffed animal monkey. McDonnell draws her monkey as if he is alive. It reminded me of Calvin and Hobbs in that way. But all kids see their animals as real. I know I did. The illustrations are so lovely. I teared up at the end. I recommend it to all animal lovers.
