This was a pretty adorable book to put in my six-year-old son's Easter basket. He could read, and he enjoyed, and I loved the illustrations.

Happy Easter, Curious George is such a precious book! This book is probably best for younger children. This story is about the monkey George. He is a very curious monkey. One day the man with the yellow hat and George went to the park. It was Easter and George was more curious than ever. All the kids were having races with their eggs and even painting their eggs bright colors. There was even an Easter bunny that George was very fond of in the park. George then saw a man hiding eggs and he wanted ...more

What a cute book to share for Easter traditions. This is one that I would use all spring beyond just Easter. While there is the Easter Bunny which George gets to see, there are also the eggs. Learn and experience with George the tradition of dyed eggs and the hunt. While this is not a Christian specific book it is family friendly, holiday filled with traditions from childhood past and present.

There is also a great page dealing with the mixture of colors from primary to secondary. I love that int

We picked this book up for free thanks to the Children's Museum of Phoenix and Target's Free First Friday event.

This was a cute book for Easter. George always finds himself causing shenanigans, though never purposely. My daughter enjoyed when George colored the Easter Eggs. George also mistakenly finds all the eggs before the hunt has began and let the Easter bunny out of it's cage!

The pictures are appealing and the glitter stickers at the end were a favorite. A very cute book to read at Easter,

Fritz selected this for his bedtime story this evening. This is typical Curious George. I have never figured out why the man with the yellow hat has a pet monkey. Nor have I come to understand how he is permitted to take the monkey out and about as he does.

They go to the park today where all the children are dying eggs, having an egg hunt, etc. George let's the Easter bunny out of his pen. George gathers all the eggs. But because he "finds" the rabbit, George is heralded. Eh.

There are pretty sti

Happy Easter, Curious George is a sweet book about George and his first Easter egg hunt. The Easter bunny got lose from his pen and ran away. George looked for the bunny but then spotted a man "losing" his Easter eggs, when in reality he was hiding them for all the children to find. As usual, George causes trouble but, in the end, he saves the day.
I thought this book was good. Curious George has never been my favorite, but this book is a good one to have for the spring time/Easter.

This hard-cover book with a dust jacket comes with a page of sparkly egg-decorating stickers.

Children love DVD's and books about a clever and good little monkey, George, who lives with his friend, the man with the yellow hat.

Today George and the man with the yellow hat are headed to the park for Easter activities. It is a cute little story, devoid of any religious significance or reference to Christ rising from the dead, but one that is still fun and bound to please young kids.

This is a fairly traditional old style Curious George book but focusing on Easter! George goes to the local park and joins in an egg hunt, egg colouring and petting baby rabbits. Fun, gentle but as with all CG, a little dated in places including the awful fact that George is not a monkey - he is actually a chimpanzee - no tail!

My Uncle Pabby sent me this book and I love it! I had no idea there is such a thing as Easter, where you play in the park and pet bunnies and find colored eggs filled with candy! That sounds like the greatest holiday ever! And plus, EVERYTHING is better with monkeys!

lots of fun. A little bit of old style of writing.

but still cute. One question though. Curious george doesn't have a tail, doesn't that make him an ape? They kkept calling him a monkey.

My daughter loves Curious George. She especially loves finding Hundley on all the pages, which I think is pretty good for a 22 month old:)

Supercute! George the monkey is up to his usual mischief at the town's Easter egg hunt. My four-year-old laughed at George's antics and really liked this story!
