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 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.

Good book for small children.

My 3 1/2 year old granddaughter LOVES Curious George, therefore, this book was a great purchase.
Reen-
The kindle format for children's books should be just as good as a full sized print edition.

This series by Margaret Rey is a wonderful introduction for preschoolers to stories with a simple plot line. In Curious George Visits the Zoo, George gets into mischief (which children can always relate to....) but redeems himself in the end by saving a young boy's balloon. In Curious George Visits the Fire Station, George is naughty when he rings the fire alarm, but again shows his better side when he rescues one of the firehouse puppies by climbing UP the firepole. In Curious George and the Pizza, he makes a mess trying his hand at tossing pizza dough into the air, but saves the day when he alone can make a crucial pizza delivery by climbing over a locked gate. Young children enjoy comparing the plots in this series. George is told not to get into trouble, he gets into trouble, then he exonerates himself. Parents, grandparents, teachers and child-care providers will all enjoy this series along with their youngsters!

I bought this ebook for our two-year-old for a long plane trip. He enjoyed the pictures and still enjoys getting to see it on the Kindlle.

This is just such a sweet, classic storybook that is perfect for babies, toddlers and preschoolers. You can't go wrong with Curious George. The illustrations are classic and the writing is great.

My 3 year old loves Curious George and animals so this was a perfect book! He likes us to read it to him over and over. Also think it will help to prepare him for his first visit to the zoo!

My son loves all things Curious George (he's 20 months) and we'd just bought him a zoo pass so we got him this book to explain a bit about the zoo and show him some of the animals so that he'd recognize them when he went. However, there are only 3 animals pictured and named in this book (there's a reference to the man with the yellow hat wanting to see when the lions are fed, but no lions). The 3 animals are elephants, giraffes and monkeys (and obviously we already know monkeys because we're reading this book! Main point of story is that George is hungry so he steals the bucket of bananas that are intended for the monkeys, then hides from the zookeeper by the monkey cage. A monkey steals a little boy's balloon, the boy cries, George climbs up on the cage and trades the bananas for the balloon.
There are MUCH better Curious George books out there. Try Curious George Learns to Count from 1 to 100 or Curious George and the Dump Truck (8x8 with stickers Curious George Green Light Reader - Level 1 (Quality)).

We used this book as a sign in for a Monkey themed baby shower. It was perfect. I wish it was hardback though.
