Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

A great way for babies to learn their colors, this accordion-style board book features black and white patterns and simple shapes for newborns on one side and a rainbow of colors and scenes, such as green leaves and purple balloons for older infants and toddlers on the reverse. It includes a magnetic closure and is sturdy enough to stand on its own. Set it up on the floor to encourage a newborn to turn her head or an older baby to lift his head during tummy time. The book also includes tips on different ways the book can be used for play time.
 
As with all the Curious Baby Curious George books, this title incorporates: a baby-friendly format perfect for gift-giving, a sophisticated color and pattern-driven design, high quality materials, simple visual content, and, of course, everyone's favorite monkey--Curious George!

Set it up on the floor to encourage a newborn to turn her head or an older baby to lift his head during tummy time.

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.
