Editorial Reviews

From Booklist

When Curious George visits a science museum, he learns about the environment and hears about an upcoming recycling rally. Back at home, he loads empty cartons and old papers into his wagon. The next day, he happily picks up more papers to fill his wagon. His neighbors, angry to find their just-delivered newspapers gone, chase George all the way to the rally. After the man with the yellow hat arrives and explains George’s mistake, they stay to help plant trees. The book concludes with 20 child-centered “Living Green” tips, such as “Use both sides of your paper.” and “Turn off the faucet while brushing your teeth,” which are illustrated on the book’s cheerful endpapers. With the tone of both art and story reminiscent of the original Curious George series, this picture book offers young children an appealing introduction to reusing and recycling. Preschool-Grade 1. --Carolyn Phelan

Format: Hardcover
My preschooler loves Curious George, the only animated show that she has consistently loved since she was a toddler, and still watches the episodes [thanks to Tivo]. We get the books from the library and read them over and over, never tiring of the curious and adorable little monkey and his many escapades.

"Curious George Plants a Tree" is the latest in the series and conveys an environmentally friendly message - George and the Man with the Yellow Hat help Dr Lee, the Science Museum Director with preparations for Green Day, devoted to recycling and planting trees. George, in typical fashion, gets carried away and proceeds to collect recyclable 'trash' from his neighbors [which are actually items that have not been used yet]. Thankfully, the Man with the Yellow Hat steps in to rescue the little monkey from his neighbors' wrath!

The illustrations are in full-color and aptly convey the comical situation that George gets himself into. At the end of the story there are 20 handy tips for living green. This is a perfect story for delivering a 'green' message to preschoolers, kindergartners, 1st and 2nd graders. Great for classroom use, especially in launching a discussion on the environment.

Good book, and the pictures showed up on my Kindle!
My 1st grader needed to read a book on the environment/recycling, and it was perfect. Very good story, not preachy. She wanted to read it again immediately.

Lots of folks are going green these days, including our old friend Curious George. He and the man with the yellow hat are off to the science museum for a tree planting. Through this book George share with us lots of tips about the three R's: Reduce, Reuse and Recycle! This is a must read for Curious George fans of all ages!
