I believe that this would be a great book for young children. Since the book is about kites, children can easily relate to the book. The big message in this book encourages children to try new things and activities. In the book, Curious George tried to fly a kite for the first time. However, he realized that the kite was much harder to fly than he originally thought.

Summary: Bill, Curious George's neighbor, allowed Curious George to fly his kite while he helped his mother inside his house. Curious George had trouble flying the kite because of the strong winds and ended up flying with the kite. He was having fun until he crashed into a tree and a squirrel also get attached to the kite's string. Curious George and the squirrel both flew with the kite in the wind until a man saved them. Bill told Curious George that he was a great kite flier. However, Curious George decided it was a better idea to fly a much smaller kite. ( )
