In this book Curious George the monkey learns that if you plant a seed that something wonderful will grow from it (in time). But he learns this as he thinks if you plant 'anything' it will grow. So with the help of his friends he learns you can't just plant household things and has to be seeds. A nice book to help teach the lesson of planting and growing things.

(This is NOT a classic Curious George book, although still good not the classic. This is based off the PBS cartoon.)

It was okay. I like the book George, not so much the TV George. I think Jumpy the Squirrel was an unnecessary character that should have been peripheral. But possibly Jumpy is a part of the tv show. I don't know.

Jumpy notwithstanding, I like George's response, and it seemed mostly in spirit of the original stories.

Jumps around a easy reader using familiar character but TV show monkey rather than traditional book character. George plants a variety of things in the ground, only few of which will grow.

The man in the yellow hat told George that stuff from the house won't grow, only seed and nuts. M.S.
