Synopses & Reviews

Review:

"Part of the Curious Baby series featuring Rey's Curious George, this counting book comes with a built-in abacus-style set of five wooden beads, which can be used in tandem with the pictures. As Curious George meets other animals, readers can count the characters pictured by sliding the beads: as George holds out his hat to a mother cow and calf, the text reads: 'Three meet up with a moo.' Finally, all of the animals appear together ('How many came out to play?'). While the beads are cleverly incorporated into the book, for youngest readers they will get more use as a rattle. Up to age 3. (June)" Publishers Weekly (Copyright Reed Business Information, Inc.)

Synopsis:

Babies will enjoy learning to recognize the adorable farm animals in this board book with wooden beads. Five beads embedded into the book function as a rattle and later as a tool for helping readers count the farm animals along with George. Beautiful patterns and a reasonable price help make this an ideal choice for gift baskets.

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 city's famous Hagenbeck Zoo drawing animals. After serving in the army during World War I, he studied philology and natural science at the University of Hamburg. He then 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 many languages, including French, German, Japanese, Afrikaans, and Norwegian. Additional Curious George books followed, as well as such other favorites as CECILY G. AND THE NINE MONKEYS and FIND THE CONSTELLATIONS.
