Extraordinary Jane Cover Image

Extraordinary Jane written and illustrated by Hannah E. Harrison.

Every second-grader in Tulsa County schools will receive a free copy of this beautifully illustrated book, which follows an everyday dog (Jane) and her life in a family of circus performers. She discovers that being yourself can be “extraordinary” – even if you can’t ride a unicycle or walk on a tightrope.

In a starred review, Publishers Weekly concludes: “Harrison's acrylic paintings, which blend realistic animal portraits with a charmingly old-fashioned circus setting to very funny effect, are the star of the show, but her understated storytelling and pacing are equally on the mark. Jane's under-the-radar helpfulness and all-around sweetness confirm the story's closing sentiment that being ‘a really good dog’ is something extraordinary in itself.”

Library card just for second graders!

All second-graders are invited to get their very own library card featuring art from Extraordinary Jane.

Teachers at Tulsa County schools have library card applications, or second-graders may come to any Tulsa City-County Library with their parent/guardian and get the new card.
