When children learn about animals and the environment, they begin to understand that everything is connected—and that they can make a difference in this world. Jane Goodall children's books plant seeds for understanding, love, care, and most importantly, hope. A portion of the proceeds from the sale of this book goes to support the Jane Goodall Institute. The Jane & Me brand is also a member of 1% for the Planet—a global network whose members contribute at least one percent of their annual sales to environmental causes.
Jaye Garnett is a pen name for the creative team at Cottage Door Press. We use a name like this when we work together on a story. We choose a name that stands for "red bird," which is our cheerful little mascot.
Bao Luu grew up in Vietnam, dreaming of becoming an artist. Today he lives in the United States where he continues his illustration work.
Cottage Door Press is an independent publisher of high-quality children’s books. Our books are designed to spark curiosity in the littlest readers and fan the flames of lifelong learning. We understand children deserve our respect. That's why we always select artwork and stories that encourage caregivers to "read up" to their little ones––exploring interests together, learning together, and giving their young minds room to grow.
We also believe in creating stories that reflect the boundless possibilities of all children. We hope to create books that inspire little ones to connect, encourage them to dream, give them cause to celebrate, and allow them to see themselves beautifully reflected in the stories they read.
To bring these beautiful stories to life, our diverse and talented staff collaborates with authors and illustrators from all backgrounds and nationalities. We have also partnered with multicultural brands and literacy organizations to make sure our books reflect and reach as many little ones as possible.
