    Book Review4 of 5 stars to Curious George by H.A Rey, a children s author, who wrote this series starting in 1941 Who didn t love Curious George when they were a child Or even now as an adult So many fun memories of this wonderful little monkey In this first book, George comes home for the first time, and the infamous yellow coat becomes a hallmark He s so innocent, yet such a magnet for bad things to happen But aren t all monkeys A

    Read and reviewed by me and my niece Emma What is it about this monkey that so enthralls readers This introductory story by Rey is not terribly memorable or particularly exciting, yet the kids are drawn to it, I absolutely love it and my niece a first time reader listener was mesmerized For those who forget what happens in this first Curious George book, a poacher the Man With The Big Yellow Hat captures George in the wild, illegally

    Yikes this has not aged well I m glad there are happier sequels and that the movie and TV shows gave it some much needed updates There s some glimmer of heart in this first one but also a lot of bad bad things.

    Here s a book I hadn t thought about for several decades, recently brought to my attention by Jack, a three year old friend who met me at his door, book in hand, wanting to be read to Ah Curious George, I said, immediately remembering and wanting very much to be reminded of the times it had been read to me in early childhood.As it happens, the book is dreadful by any adult, twenty first century standards The story is horrific for what it

    This is a book I loved as a child that I hadn t read in a long time It s an iconic character, and brings up some valuable topics for children There were a number of books in the series, but the first one was on point, and still a favorite to have parents and teachers today.
