This book have a lot of people in it. George is a very Curious monkey and gets in a lot trouble in most of the book. George decided he wanted to cook some pancakes. So he decided to put blueberries on the pancakes when the cook wasn’t looking. George ended up cooking the pancakes and people couldn’t believe it because they had been coming to this event for years and have never seen pancakes like that before.

My nephew like the book because the monkey got in a lot of trouble.

Since I have always been a Curious George fan, I thought that Curious George Makes Pancakes was a fun read. It tells about a day that Curious George goes to a fundraiser with the man that he stays with. At this fundraiser there is a chef making pancakes. At first, George slips a few blueberries into the man's pancakes. When they become a true hit, George takes over and fixes all of the pancakes. In the end, George being curious makes the fundraiser a huge success and they ask him to come back fo ...more
This is such a great book. Who doesn't love pancakes! Curious George tried to help out by making pancakes at the Pancake Breakfast in the park. He gets in trouble because monkeys aren't supposed to be cooking. This book shows step by step how to poor the batter and cook pancakes. It would be great for teaching sequencing. In the end the everyone loves Georges blueberry pancakes and the mayor thanks him.

Curious George does it again! His curiousity is a good thing this time though! The story is full of lots of great opportunities for discussions of new vocabulary (such as fundraiser, charity, mayor, etc). Also, it would be a great opener to a fun activity with pancakes! (Ex: You could do a math activity with measuring by making pancakes as a class or the kids could cut out paper pancakes and use them to do math facts!)
We all like the Curious George books. Probably because my little boys remind me of Curious George with all of his inquistiveness and mischief.

We have this book sitting out in the kitchen to make the pancakes that Curious George made in the book. The recipe is on the back.

We found this book at Walmart for $3.00. :)

I once worked with a young autistic boy who was couldn't get enough of Curious George. This one kept him in stitches as George, predictably, created quite a headache at the pancake breakfast.
This book contains an easy breezy recipe in the back, that kids can make with their families!

I don't think I've come by a Curious George book that my kids haven't enjoyed yet. This one was no exception.

This book is adorable. I love Curious George and who doesn't love pancakes? I think it is a cute way to show that you can try and do anything you set your mind too. Curious George had never made pancakes and he wanted to try.

Curious George makes Pancakes by H.A Rey, illustrated by Vipah Interactive, George woke up extra early to make pancakes and raise money. Curious George is never patient and leaves the man with the yellow hat when he asks him to stay. The man in the griddle was making pancakes and George helped him without him knowing. The griddle man needed an assistant and Curious George was just the help he needed. Until a man came and scared George away.

Everyone knows Curious George is a monkey who loves doi

I love George! He represents the curiousness of children along with sharing the possible consequences of acting upon this curiosity. He also is very mannerly. He does not do things out of disobedience, but out of curiosity. He also receives correction well and does not throw a tantrum. His underlying motivation is generally just to be helpful.
George is attending the annual pancake breakfast with the man with the yellow hat. George notices that the cook making the pancakes is working alone &

In this book, Curious George once again gets into trouble, but not intentionally. He and the Man in the Yellow Hat attend a fundraiser pancake breakfast. George livens things up by making fantastic blueberry pancakes, as well as playing in the dunk tank.

One of the great things about Curious George books are the predictable beginnings and endings. All of the stories involve George stumbling into a situation and making a mess of things. In real life, it would be unacceptable, but in these books, i

Who knew monkeys could make pancakes? This fun and interactive book, is a great choice to have in your classroom. As kids are curious, they will love to follow George and his adventures. Although this book has a lot of words, and could be used with older readers, it could also be used with young readers because of the pictures. The illustrations are bright and colorful and will pull in any reader. Students could have fun reading the pictures, and guessing what will happen next. For this reason I ...more

As a married couple with a fascinating story of adventure in their own life, the Reys created one of the most well-loved characters in children’ ...more

Why do kids love monkeys? who knows but they do. Curious George is up to his old antics in this book. Poor monkey always gets in trouble but he is usually just being curious or just trying to help. This time though he gets recognized for the work he does in helping with the hospital pancake breakfast fund raiser. Finally George catches a break!
Marilyn Johnson
taking the most out of what this book has to offer children many many things can be learned or applied to life. Curious George is a fun book that does crazy things yet is told what is correct and incorrect as the story unfolds. Many children who read these books have their eyes open to what is okay and what is deemed incorrect in our society.

This was a classic Curious George, I loved it as a child and those memories came back as I read it to my special needs teen age son that loves Curious George. George goes to a fair that was having a pancake b'fast. He helps out since after all he has four hands... and then he gets accidentally in the dunking tank. Making the fund raiser the biggest they've ever had.

Every year, Curious George, an interesting monkey, and his owner starts a pancake breakfast fundraiser. The money raised goes to the children's hospital. How kind they are!
I learned from this story that good thoughts and good words are not enough, I also have to do good. This is a great book for everybody to read.
Alison Durbin
This book was alright. The story was fine and the illustrations were nice. I understand why kids enjoy Curious George, and I don't see a reason for them to not enjoy this book. It's a quick read for younger readers, and it's a character that most everyone knows.
Jasmin Cruz
I really liked this book because all children are curious and they may think that they are doing the right thing but adults may take it the wrong way. thins book will teach the children that before they do something, they should ask if it is ok.
Feb 05, 2010 Dave rated it liked it  ·  review of another edition
A bit pedestrian, in my humble opinion. Not quite the character development a Rey achieved in "Curious George Rides a Bike," but better than "Curious George Flies a Kite." Bottom line: a must-read for the George-aphiles out there.
Connie Lyle
This story could be a great carry over to dramatic play and cooking activities making pancakes. This story also helps children learn about giving and helping others even if you don't get anything in return.
