I love the mix of realistic images and the more whimsical cartoon type pictures in this book. The recognition from the Caldecott committee is well deserved. I actually prefer it to the winning book.
Me... Jane is the story of a young girl named Jane. Jane loves the outdoors and spends a lot of her time outside exploring the world around her, especially the animals.
Jane also reads a lot of fiction and non-fiction about the world she longs to explore. One of her favorite subjects is Africa.
Jane dreams of going to Africa and studying the land and the animals. To find out if she will accomplish her dreams read Me... Jane.
