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.

My first Curious George. Meh. Not very good writing. More like daytime TV than an intelligent book respectful of young minds. Kids are smart - this assumes they are not. I'll stick with Dr Seuss.
Very inexpensive magazine quality flimsy paperback - won't last long.

This is a great book. It goes in depth about various environmental issues, but not too in depth, it is kid friendly. There are lots of ideas in the back of the book to teach children about caring for 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.

Can a classic duo continue to enchant readers with new books? In the case of Curious George the answer is yes. The Rey's Curious George style embraces current themes through the pen and brush of Monica Perez and Anna G. Hines. In this book George learns the value of recycling along with his mentor, the man in the yellow hat. Readers will know the correct steps for planting a tree. And with 20 steps to conservation George has a valuable lesson for his readers: reduce, reuse, recycle, the three "R's" that help us to a greener world.
