Curious George (the creation of Margret and H.A. Rey) has been a favorite of children for decades. The happy, cute animals are attractive and welcoming.
Each of the thirteen chapters is organized around a story like going to the zoo, ice cream, or camping. In some of the Curious George stories, the man in yellow has been the central actor, but George takes the main role in this book. There are both activities that kids can do with minimal supervision as well as adult and kid interactive challenges.
The interactive bits were pleasantly surprising in their complexity and potential for having meaningful conversations about things like social norms, ethics, and other topics that other books shy away from.
I loved this book and highly recommend it!
First of all, this book is visually appealing to anyone, but most importantly, to the targeted age group. It has a great mix of story and educational activities, disguised as fun, which makes it a lot easier for a parent or grandparent to get the child to actively participate willingly. I'm all for fun & education being combined because then something magical happens--they REMEMBER the lesson!
My daughter has bought countless workbooks, reading books, etc. for my granddaughter, and I've gotten her some materials as well. We've seen a lot of the fundamental type, and they do vary a great deal on the fun factor as well as on the visual appeal factor.
She's familiar with Curious George (He was also one of my favorite characters as a young child.) Instant recognition of a familiar character does help, so George has his foot in the door immediately. She's excited about the book and wants to read it all NOW, rather than work through it in order, so we're having to put the brakes on rather than getting the so-called whip out to get her to work in this workbook.
Is it going to turn her into an educational protege? Probably not. We don't expect it to. It provides fun and education under one cover on a fairly thick workbook. Price-wise, it is a bargain compared to the countless books we have gotten her with less than 1/10th of the activities at nearly the same price.
There are no cons to this book that we can find. It's great and we highly recommend it.
