This version of Curious George is one of my favorites. I love the storyline and how the man with the yellow hat introduces George to what birthdays are by throwing him a surprise party. This could definitely be useful when parents are introducing the idea of birthdays to young children. I also loved how the illustrations remain true to the originals.
My toddler loves Curious George!
a smart monkey's birthday.

This was a cute George book, he didn't know anything about birthday's or parties...however when the friend with the yellow hat tells him there will be a surprise and it ends up being George's birthday with all his friends he loves it! One of the better Curious George books, in my opinion.
I actually liked this better than the original story. Its cute and mischievous, without any of the less sensitive moments. And the best part is its a great introduction to birthdays or birthday parties. Wish I has this much sooner for Natalie.

Dr. office read. Emma enjoyed this so much it was ridiculous. Every time she saw the dogs she got so excited. She worked at them, patted them, and just loved them.
