From Publishers Weekly
This is a pop-up version of the favorite title about the inquisitive monkey who unintentionally wreaks havoc on an entire city just by poking into things. By opening a page or yanking the right tabs, readers can watch George put on the yellow hat (the act that leads to his capture), get rescued from his attempt at flying, and teeter on the telephone lines. The firefighting sequence (when George accidentally calls the fire department) is action-packed, and the final pop-ups, of the monkey with his balloons, are inspired. For modern readers, George's kidnapping may seem severe. But this is a grand adventure in any format, and pop-ups make the still-curious monkey fly. Ages 4-8.

From School Library Journal
PreSchool-Grade 3–The timeless antics of Curious George are given new life in this read-along series, which faithfully follows the text of each story. A male narrator, accompanied by minimal musical interludes and sound effects, reads the story, once with page-turn signals and once without on each CD. Sounds effects occasionally explain pertinent parts of the unspoken story, like a splash in the water when George takes a dive into the ocean. Curious George Feeds the Animals has a female reader, with a male counterpart reading the Man with the Yellow Hat's lines. Margaret and H.A. Rey's original character has been entertaining children for decades, but it's hard to imagine a child today who wouldn't be puzzled by The Man with the Yellow Hat plucking George from his environment and transporting him to another country, George's imprisonment (and jail-break!) for inadvertently dialing the fire department while playing with the phone, or the fact that the Man in the Yellow Hat leaves his charge unattended when he takes him to a movie. Still, a naughty anthropomorphic monkey is entertaining, and adults may want to take the opportunity to explain to pint-sized listeners that their monkey-shines won't warrant the same results. Curious George certainly deserves a spot on the shelf, and these engaging stories will provide a good exercise in imagination and creativity. A solid choice, especially with an all-new animated adventure based on the classic tales debuting as a feature film in February 2006.–Kirsten Martindale, formerly Menomonie Public Library, WI

The books are simple books with mostly simple sentences. On the inside cover of each book there is a helpful guide that will tell you words you will see in the book to learn and other word that are in the book so you can look for them. I have included a picture of one cover so you can see what it looks like, also a picture to how you the cover of a book along with the cardboard case in which the books come. The 3rd picture I have included shows a couple of pages of one book to give you an idea of what they look like inside.
I am looking forward to many more hours, days, weeks, months and years of reading with my son. My son is 3 and already learning some words... it's so exciting :) If my review helped you please click the button below, thank you and God bless!
The illustrations are colorful and fun with lots of details. If you're a Curious George fan, you'll love adding this one to your collection! We read it over and over again.
Personally I think it opens up opportunities for discussion and learning, a book worth reading & one that will stay in our library. Our youngest child loves it and reads it regularly.
This is the classic tale that introduces us to an insanely curious monkey named George and the man in the yellow hat, and shows us how the two first met. This is the first entry in the Curious George series! If you grew up loving the adventures of Curious George, or have young children who love this adorable, yet curious monkey, or even if you plan on sharing your love for Curious George with your children for the very first time, you can't go wrong with this book! Highly recommended! Brings back so many memories!
I loved Curious George as a child, and I am happy that my children love them as much as I do. If any book in the 4-8 age bracket deserves 5 stars it is Curious George.
