It's easy to forget that heroes like animal advocate Jane Goodall were once just little kids with big dreams. In this heartwarming tale, we learn how young Jane loved her special childhood toy chimpanzee named Jubilee. She dreams of "a life living with and helping all animals," and is delighted when she wakes up one day and finds that her dream has come true. This ALA Notable Book boils down anecdotes from Goodall's autobiography to be accessible for children.
