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.

I've since bought two additional sets. For her third birthday, she wanted a Curious George party so we bought two of these box sets and gave out the individual books as party favors. At less than $2 a book, they are just the right price for a favor and much better than a cheap piece of junk toy that will just break. All the parents loved having a book to take home and enjoyed selecting whichever book they thought their child might like.
Whether you are a new Curious George fan, a seasoned fan looking to expand your collection, or selecting a gift for a little George fan, the price of this set can't be beat!
My youngest children love Curious George and these are excellent readers. We've read them over and over again. Repetition is great for young readers to build vocabulary and familiarize them with reading and to BUILD a love of reading! Curious George is a classic, we homeschool and we're picky with what we read but anything by H.A. Rey is welcome in our home. Great children's books and the illustrations are wonderful too!
The plot is repetitive but that is because George is always getting into trouble so you have the same pattern--he gets curious, he does something naughty, something bad happens, then something good comes out of the bad event, and then everyone is happy and George is usually a hero. This does not bother me in the least. My kids find his adventures interesting and never get bored with that "plot." To them, it is funny and what makes Curious George funny. Sure, if this was an adult book then the repetition might be problematic but thankfully it is not an adult book!
The illustrations are nice and detailed and provide a lot of material for my kids to look at while I read the story to them. The quality of the pages is good and it's nice that there is sometimes stickers or a little activity in the back, though truthfully my kids have never cared for them much.
I like that there are many of these books because my kids become familiar with George and the concept of series, and can distinguish one book in the series from another and even have favorites.
I really don't think you can go wrong with these books. I don't know many other kids that don't like these. They are a good investment!
The six books are Curious George and the Puppies, Curious George Makes Pancakes, Curious George Goes to a Chocolate Factory, Curious George at the Aquarium, Curious George Visits a Toy Store, and Curious George's Dinosaur Discovery. The books are 8 by 8 paper backs.
The books were super affordable. I bought them for $6.95, which was roughly $1.16 for a book.
Also, the back of the books contain activities and some fun stuff.
I would highly recommend these books for children in preschool. Because my brother loved these books!
I purchased this for my little brother who happens to be Curious George's number one fan. :)
I mean, who wouldn't love George? Curious George is a curious, cute, innocent, and intelligent monkey.
He has watched most if not all of the Curious George movies and episodes.
So, he was super excited to finally get a Curious George book set.
