36 months - I picked this up at the thrift store for 50 cents. This is one of the longer original stories. We've had so many conversations about putting things in the mouth, ears and nose that doesn't belong there this was a good reminder of why this is a "no no". My daughter really doesn't like to go to the doctor so this book hopefully, maybe, too a bit of the scariness away. We'll find out next week. ( )

George takes a trip to the hospital after he swallows a puzzle piece. He brings laughter to the children’s ward in the hospital. Once he returns home he receives a package from his nurse- the puzzle piece. ( )

This is a book about a monkey who always finds himself being too curious. He always goes on some adventure because he is so curious. He always end up getting in trouble by his owner, the man with the yellow hat. This particular Curious George is about him ending up in the hospital because he has decided to eat a puzzle piece. The book describes how George got to the hospital and also his experience at the hospital. The book is an example of modern fantasy. ( )

Curious George swallows a piece of his jigsaw puzzle and has to go to the hospital. After his operation, George cheers up the children in the ward with his antics. This is a touching story that could make hospital-bound children feel more secure and at ease. ( )

Curious George is a classic choice for any child's library or classroom. This particular story is one of my favorites. The hospital is portrayed in a non-threatening manner with friendly doctors, nurses, and fellow patients. Some children who have had x-rays or hospital stays recently might enjoy comparing modern experiences with those in the book. The book also teaches a lesson about not eating puzzle pieces and other non-food items! Fun story, great read-aloud!
