This book, like all other Curious George books, is a fun and cute story about the little monkey, George, who gets himself into all kinds of trouble and adventure. He is always with "the man in the yellow hat" and he gets separated from him at a parade. He finds himself at the top of a float, looking for food, and causing a huge scene in front of the crowd at the parade. In the end, he finds his way back and the parade is a success. This is a fun book to read to students because there are differe...more
George and his friend are headed to the big holiday parade in the city. While waiting for the parade to start George becomes curious and slips out a store window and onto a nearby float. He breaks the float, on accident of course, and is chased down the street by a parade person. He doesnt get caught but finds himself lost somewhere in the city. He manages to find his way back to some tangled floats and unites them as he swings from rope to rope. George saves the day once again and everyone is h...more
George helps fix the tangle balloons so the parade can go on. He also gets to lead it with the director for doing so.
Natalie knows George from TV, so I let her get one of his books when she finds them. But, she isn't that interested in sitting and listening to them yet, unless she is strapped down at lunch. I didn't really like this one. I felt the story kind of meandered along. His curiosity was kind of scattered, which is realistic, but doesn't make for the best story.
Good one! (Typically George causes some trouble, and then somehow he's the hero when he solves the problem. Additionally, when will the man with the Yellow Hat learn to never ever EVER let George near Hot-Air Baloons/Parade Floats?)

With curiosity, George jumps onto a float, an action resulting in disruption of a marching band. When two balloons drift away, George succeeds in bring them back. Then he gets his reward.

Curious George goes to a Macy's-like parade and manages to destroy a float but save the parade. Classic Curious George plot.
continues the story of the cute little monkey who moves to the city
