Book Review #1201
Me...Jane by Patrick McDonnell
Rating: four stars (out of four)
I loved this book. I thought it did an excellent job of portraying a remarkable woman and still related her to the readers in a simplistic and engaging way. I adored the illustrations and especially loved the included the artwork from Jane that drew when she was a girl. I also enjoyed seeing photos of Jane bookmarking the story. I almost get teary-eyed when I read it. I would definitely recommend this book - it's so sweet and does an excellent job of illustrating the childhood of a well-loved environmentalist.
Update 7/12/11: I bought this book at ALA Conference and had it signed by the author!
