Editorial Reviews

From Booklist

George wants a five-dollar train car at the toy store, and on the advice of the Man in the Yellow Hat, he saves up for it by helping a neighbor. He has the money by week’s end but gets distracted en route to the shop, leaving his piggy bank at the playground. Luckily for George, a girl turns in his piggy bank, and in a good-deeds turn, he shares the money. Voilá! A cheaper train car and a friend. Although a bit message heavy, the story offers a math connection that teachers will enjoy, and fans will love more Curious George. Preschool-Grade 2. --Patricia Austin

There is a simple bank for kids to make at the end of the book, but I bought it to help my granddaughter understand about saving and using her rubber piggy bank I bought at the same time. We will wait till she is older to make the bank as it is a little fragile in the hands of a three year old. Simple story with one of her favorite characters keeps her attention as it teaches the importance of saving.

I really like this little book. It is very cute and George teaches how to save money. The pictures go into small details and even that the book is short, it entertains you well. It also comes with a little mini bank!

My little ones love George and this one is high up in the rotation. It shows George saving money by doing chores, and almost losing it all when he is careless. It also shows him rewarding a little girl who saves his money for him when he lost it. Lots of good lessons, plus it's GEORGE. Only drawback: I found the three year old climbing his dresser to try to get to his "piggabank" so he could shake it. Time for a shatterproof piggy bank.

"Curious George Saves His Pennies" by H.A. Rey is a nice story that teaches children importance of money saving and how money should be spent smartly, but also how much to someone can mean our noble deed.

Our little hero, monkey named George, wants to save to be able to buy nice looking red train in the toy store.
He will struggle to save money putting it into his piggy bank but when enough will be saved he will discover that his whole savings are gone.
Is there any chance that George will find his hard-earned money and purchase a beautiful train?

Besides great illustrations and lessons that the book provides to a child, its great add-on is the bank page that will teach your kid how to count money.

"Curious George Saves His Pennies" is a book that can be fully recommended for children both due to its lessons and nice design.
After they will read it, they will probably also want to start saving for their own special toy, like my kid did...

My kids both love Curious George! When I got my 2-year-old daughter her first piggy bank as a holiday present, I also wanted to get her a book that included good messages about saving money. I'm happy to report that this book as become part of our regular reading rotation and has piqued my daughter's interest in putting money in her piggy bank. I know the concept of saving her money to buy something will come later, but her big sister gets it and also loves the book!

Who doesn't love Curious George? My nephews give this book two thumbs up for entertainment value and AuntieK gives it 5 stars for the lesson in teaching all little monkeys to save their money. A classic book good for girls and boys, especially those with an interest in shiny red trains. We all found it a very fun read!

My two-and-a-half year old loves this book. I find it a tiny bit overlong and tedious. I find the lesson of the book a little weird-- George left his piggy bank on a park bench, and these people just picked it up without saying anything to the group of people who were playing ten feet away? And then they conveniently turned it in to the toy store where George went even though he didn't have any money? Anyway, like I said, my kid loves it, and we've been using it to talk about money. Also, if you are inexperienced with Kindle picture books, you can double tap on the page to change to a mode where the text pops up in its own boxes and a larger font. The text is quite small in this book, so that mode is indispensable.
