Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

There are so many fun things for Curious George to do at the park: see his animal friends, admire the trees and flowers, fly a kite, play soccer, and—his favorite one of all—have a picnic!
 
The varied touch-and-feel materials—which include soft bunny fur, bumpy tree bark, shiny kite material, a rubbery soccer ball, and patterned blanket fabric—help young readers experience and enjoy all that the park has to offer through the curious eyes of everyones favorite little monkey.

Review:

"In this chipper board book, a portable Curious George figure is attached to a yellow ribbon, which readers can slip into sleeves on a series of vehicles, which include a yellow convertible ('Red light — Stop! Yellow — go slow. Ready, set...'), a red and silver rocket ('The clock counts down — 3... 2... 1... Blast off to space!'), and a yellow plane ('George likes chasing clouds, soaring way up high!'). A simple diversion for fans of Curious George and vehicles. Up to age 3. (May)" Publishers Weekly Copyright PWxyz, LLC. All rights reserved.

Synopsis:

Looking around, Curious George realizes that he sees shapes everywhere. Slide the tabs sideways or upward to discover what shapes George sees when he looks at a soccer ball (circle), a painting (square), a jack-oand#8217;-lantern (triangles), a wagon (rectangle), a balloon (oval), a kite (diamond), a star, and a heart. Also includes suggestions on how parents and children can take a and#147;shape walkand#8221; around their neighborhood.

Synopsis:

Ready, set, go! Curious George is on the go in this new concept board book for toddlers. The book includes a double-sided George attached to a ribbon that can be slipped in and out of pockets that appear on each spread. Each pocket puts George in a different vehicleand#8212;a fire truck, a taxi, a convertible, an airplane, and even a rocket ship!

About the Author

Hans Augusto Rey was born in Hamburg, Germany in 1898. As a child, he spent much of his free time in that cityand#39;s famous Hagenbeck Zoo drawing animals. After serving in the army during World War I, he married Margret Rey and they moved to Montmartre for four years. The manuscript for the first Curious George books was one of the few items the Reys carried with them on their bicycles when they escaped from Paris in 1940. Eventually, they made their way to the United States, and Curious George was published in 1941. Curious George has been published in numerous languages. And many, many Curious George books have followed.
