In the story Curious George, a little monkey visits a school with his friend, The man in the Yellow Hat. During his visit he sees the Mr. Williams the art teacher who shows George many of the students art. However, one of the students paintings was missing. Mr. Williams had to leave the room so he gave George some paint and told the little monkey he would be right back. It began to get hot in the room so George turned on an electric fan that blew the papers everywhere as soon as the teacher got back. When they were cleaning up, they found the missing painting! Everyone, even George, got a gold star for their paintings.

This predictable book is another story about Curious George and the Man in the Yellow Hat. It was conferences at George's school, and as they both were waiting for George's homeroom teacher, they walked into the art room. As the Man in the Yellow Hat meets with Curious George's teacher, Curious George is left in the art room painting. He realizes a chart with all the student's names on them with a gold star next to each name except for one, Alice. Alice never turned in her painting and didn't get a gold star next to her name. As Curious George began to explore, he accidentally turned the fan on and all the paintings on the wall fell off and flew around the room. He helped his art teacher pick up all the pictures and found Alice's stuck between the wall and the desks. Alice gets a gold star for her painting and is very happy because Curious George helped find her painting. The illustrations were neat and simple. The text was short and easy to read for beginner readers. A teacher can use this book as a "play" time book or even read it aloud during small group. ( )

I found it a bit boring, but there's a George craze going on so I wanted to see what it was about. I told Oliver to get his monkey and we read it together. ( )

This is a good example of fantasy, because a monkey is talking and interacting with humans, but it is realistic because he goes to school, receives rewards, and even participates in an open house, all of which are common experiences for most school aged children. ( )
