Curious George Takes a Job is a trade book about Curious George being the curious monkey he goes and find a job to do. He can't seem to stay put and moves from job to job. The illustrations in Curious George Takes a Job is nicely drawn with pen and colored in. Teachers can use this book in the classroom to teach about the different careers in the world. I enjoy this book a lot because it very funny and George is such a troublemaker. He sure is a handful, but he's very entertaining. ( )

The curious Monkey, George escapes the zoo. He gets a job being a dishwasher, window washer, and causes trouble by painting an apartment room. His experience is documented and turned into a movie. George and his friends watch it in theaters. ( )

I love this book. As Curious George wanders through the city trying out different jobs, the reader wonders what trouble his curiosity will get him into this time. I like this book because it is a humorous story that uses few words to get the story across. This is also a book where the reader does not even need to read the words, as the pictures also tell the whole story. In fact, without the pictures, I almost feel as though the book would be boring and lifeless. The illustrations make the words come alive, such as when George is stuck in the spaghetti, with it twisted around his arms and legs, or is painting the apartment like a jungle scene. I think if this story has a main idea, that it is that curiosity has consequences, and a person has to learn to be responsible sometimes. ( )

George escapes from the Zoo. He is afraid of the big city and looks for his friend with the big yellow hat. He breaks his leg while at work and ends up in the hospital. ( )

A typical Curious George book, Curious George gets into all kinds of trouble because he is too curious. Eventually he gets a job as a cook and a hotel attendant make good use of his unique abilities. However, he soon forgets to not be so curious and gets in trouble again. This book doesn't offer a lot of extra value other than some simple entertainment. It should however, be appealing to students who like a naughty main character. The book is full of humor, excitement and mischief. It is a quick and easy read for beginning readers and would be great for the book shelf in any elementary school classroom or library to get young readers excited about reading. The illustrations are also fun and appealing, adding to the humor and excitement. ( )
