One day, while on a trip to the fire house, George decides to go on a call with the firefighters. While at first George is in the way a bit, he soon finds his place comforting the children in the park that are afraid of the fire.

George, the popular curious, adventuresome monkey, was up to no good. Then, his friend, the man with the big yellow hat, wanted to take him home from Africa to the zoo. But, when George was captured he still was curious and went on adventures in the big city, one bringing the entire fire department out. ( )

All Curious George stories are great reads. This particular story is about George exploring the careers of firefighters. He gets to slide down the pole, ride in the truck, and help to put out an actual fire. The illustrations in this book are great and children love to try to guess what George will do next.
