Curious George gets into trouble when left alone with a friend's kite.

Such a fun story. My mom read all the Curious George books to me and my brother growing up. Great for first graders to read on their own and for younger ages to be read to. ( )

I love this little monkey, and I like how the slow pace and linear series of indicative statements about what Curious George does and sees that make up this early work seem to convey the actual cognitive processes of a monkey, minus the fight or flight and mating instincts of course. ( )

George is left home alone and becomes curious. He spots a house he wants to explore. He jumps out his window and goes to the house. It is filled with bunnies. Curious George goes fishing and a kid has a kite. The monkey watches the kite for him, but begins to play with it. The kite begins to lift him off the ground and in to the sky and the man in the yellow hat saves him. George returns the kite to his friend and is rewarded with a bunny!

This story is solely for entertainment, but I still love it anyway. ( )

In this book Curious George flies a kite. He also does a number of other fun things, And each time he gets into trouble. It's hard to be curious. But it's fun. We love this series, just as we love the animated ones on PBS. Most little kids can relate really well to Curious George. Luckily, the man with the yellow hat is usually close by, close enough to get George out of trouble. This is a safe read for my very sensitive 3 1/2 year old. Although Curious George does get himself into many a pickle, there are no scary guys, no mean dogs, no dragons, no deaths, and it always ends well. ( )
