Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Curious George is a good little monkey, and always very curious. Now George is curious about numbers. Counting from 1 to 10 is easy, but can he count all the way to 100? George has picked the perfect day to try. Itand#8217;s his townand#8217;s 100th birthday today and everyone is coming out to celebrate!

With the help of his friend, the man with the yellow hat, George learns to count from 1 to 100, making his usual monkey mischief along the way. Young minds (and little fingers) will find all kinds of wonderful things to count as they turn each colorful page.

In this large format, paper-over-board book each page features familiar objects for children to count. From home (toys, shoes, plates) to the park (bugs, sticks, clouds) to school (paste, crayons, books) George finds many different things to count. A perfect book for celebrating counting, numbers and the 100th day of school.

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.
