This book was kind of strange to read to me; compared to other curious george books, there wasn’t really a theme or direct storyline. It was very encouraging though! Basically, this book is encouraging those who read it to do whatever they want to or can put their minds to. It’s kind of like “Oh the place you’ll go!” by Dr. Seuss in the way that it goes over all these things that you can do-such as following your dreams (but holding on tight) or seeing sights that take your breath away. It tell ...more

This is a neat book and will make a perfect gift choice for so many different occasions. Whether it is a preschool, elementary school or even high school or college graduate Curious You On Your Way! is a delightful idea for an inspirational present. It would be especially unique for someone who as a child loved Curious George to have this to revisit in an older graduation. We are really coming to love Curious George in our family and I am always interested to see what he'll learn next. In a way ...more

Zoehfeld, K., & Rey, H. (2008). Curious you: On your way! New York: Scholastic.

I selected Curious You on Your Way! as the book that caught my attention because the cover of the book said “for graduates of all ages”, and I am a recent graduate so the cover drew me in. I thought this book would be great to share with students moving to another level of their schooling such as pre-kindergarteners moving on to kindergarten because the book acknowledges accomplishment and describes the upside to

No matter your age, you just can't help but love Curious George!

With CURIOUS YOU: ON YOUR WAY!, author H. A. Rey takes the life and times of Curious George and applies it to the very important event of graduation. Whether it's graduating from preschool to a elementary school, from high school to college, or possibly even a graduation from childhood into adulthood, this is one book that you'll always be able to take along with you.

As we learn along with
Another in the graduation/inspiration picture book canon. The text seems somewhat forced in order to match the available selection of Curious George illustrations. Sometimes it works (see "Whatever you do, you will find your own style"), sometimes it doesn't ("The feats you imagine you'll just have to try...and imagination can lead to invention.").

Such a great book! I love the overall message for students to explore new things and how your family and friends will be there to support you. I feel like this is a great book to encourage our students and make them feel content with their selves.

This is not a traditional Curious George book. It basically uses Curious George illustrations with motivational text. Still the illustrations are classic and the "story" is sweet and inspirational.

Couldn't stay away from those delicious graduation day dollars, huh?

Cute book for every graduate!!
Megan Boomgarden
This book is great because it is written in a style for young children but the topic speaks to people of any age. It is filled with congratulations and encouragement that everyone can appreciate and enjoy. The text is bold and colorful and is similar to other curious george books but the inspiration within the words is ment to touch everyone. We all deserve a good job and good luck every now and then and this book is a great way to share that with someone.

I've always had a thing for George! I like his exploring the what, how and why of things! I love that the books teach children to use their minds and imagination. And they teach parents patience when dealing with the messes their children make while learning!
Another goodie if you are a Curious George Collector or just looking for a good book for your little one.

Not only is this a great gift for graduates, but it's a wonderful book about starting a new chapter in your life. It's also a fun book to read during career week to inspire students that they can be anything.

I know it is cliche, but gave this book to my son (graduating 8th)... it was a "sweet moment".

The only curious George book that brings the curiosity as a virtue home to the reader.
