Curious George

We LOVE Curious George at our house. We own this book and we love to read about George. My son's nickname is Monkey and I call him George a lot because he likes to be curious and get in to trouble (like any other 14 month old!). I highly recommend that book. It has all of the original books in it by Margret and H.A. Rey. We decided to check out all of the books that our library has about George so look forward to another post soon when we get the rest of them!

Curious George Visits a Toy Store
I wouldn't say this is our favorite George book but it's still fun. There's a new toy store that opens and George is excited to check out the new toys. He learns how to Hula-hoop and helps children get toys off high shelfs. The owner is mad at him throughout the book because he keeps making messes but in the end realizes that he made the grand opening a big success.

Curious George and the Hot Air Balloon
George and his friend visit Mt Rushmore on a vacation. Workers are working on Mt Rushmore and George wants to go in a helicopter to see what they're doing up close. They have to run to see the hot air balloon race though. While everyone is distracted George sees a rope and MUST climb it. While he's climbing the rope up to a balloon the rope that's holding the balloon down comes undone so he starts going up and up with the balloon. George ends up at Mt Rushmore again and helps save a stranded worker. They land and a big crowd rescues them. George then gets to go on a helicopter ride to see Mt Rushmore closer.

Curious George's First Day of School
I really liked this one and think we'll have to buy it so we can read it over and over when we're learning colors.

George is invited to visit school. He is very helpful all day. They get to paint and only have red yellow and blue paints. He decides to make more colors. He ends up mixing them all together and makes a big mess. He tries to clean it up but makes more of a mess and gets upset that everyone is mad at him. His classmates help him clean up.

Curious George Feeds the Animals
George visits the zoo and feeds the animals. He gets in trouble for feeding the animals until a lost parrot finds him. He's told not to feed the animals but is thanked for helping find the parrot. There are a lot of animals he sees (you read what they are) so it's great for learning animal names.
