This is such a cute story. Curious George is always a favorite for kids because he's a monkey that gets in to trouble. I loved when he ended up at the children's hospital and ended up cheering them up. I think it's a cute story for kids and indirectly shows how they can help others who aren't as fortunate or are sick in the hospital. This will definitely be one we read every Christmas.
George goes out to buy a Christmas tree with the man in the yellow hat and ends up in a tree bound for the children's hospital. George decides that he will help decorate the tree with things he found in the hospital. As usual someone doesn't like what George has done but the children come to the rescue.

Typically Curious George antics. Not the best book in the Curious George series, but it is funny and a good seasonal reminder for kids that Christmas is not always happy for everyone, but that we can do things for others.
I love Curious George, he is inquisitive and clever and everything always works out in the end.
Margret and H.A. Rey’s inquisitive little monkey is given new life in Cathy Hapka’s addition to the Curious George collection. On a visit to a Christmas tree farm, George gets separated from the Man in the Yellow Hat and is inadvertently delivered to a children’s hospital, where he wreaks a little havoc and decorates the tree with x-rays, crutches, and lollipops meant for patients. Hapka’s story is reminiscent of the Reys’ decades-old tales, andYoung’s illustrations are dead ringers for the orig ...more

I loved reading Curious George books when I was a child, but for some reason our girls never really took to this funny monkey. I had no idea how many books were out there in this series, but occasionally I'll pick one up to read on my own.

This is a sweet Christmas-themed tale about George sharing some Christmas fun with children in a hospital. The narrative is short and entertaining and the illustrations hold true to the original tales. I read an ebook version of this story on my iPad.

I brought a bag of Christmas/Winter books with me to class and I let the students pick out a book or two to read each day. This book was picked today and the kids loved it. I was unsure if they knew who Curious George was as he is not as popular as he once was. It didn't matter, they still loved the book and loved George because as one student said "He's a Monkey (giggle giggle)".

In this book, George was very curious and climbed to the top of a tree in the field. Two men cut it down and did not notice George was on it. They took the tree to a hospital and George decorated the tree and made a mess. A nurse found his and was very upset but the kids loved it and wanted George to stay for their Christmas party.
Curious George sets out on an adventure to find a Christmas tree. Due to George's curiosity, he ends up in a different situation. This would be a great holiday book to read to a classroom right before winter break. I think young students would enjoy this story.

Curious George gets in a Christmas tree that's taken to the hospital where he tries to make things festive. He ends up making all the sad children happy and the man with the yellow hat finds him to take him home.
George is in a tree when it gets cut down and taken to a local hospital where he causes mischief and makes the sick children laugh. Wonderful, funny illustrations.

I like being able to get books for my daughter on my Kindle. Please keep making ebook versions of all your kids books! And she loved the story & pictures. 4 stars due to minor Kindle formatting errors at the beginning.
Curious George is up to his usual mischief while entertaining children within the story and those reading. Readers of all ages will enjoy this book. Makes for a good holiday bedtime tale.
Another installment in the ever-popular series. In this edition the mischievous little monkey's curiosity saves the day at a children's hospital.
Megan Sutherland
A classic story about Curious George during the holidays. Shows children how to forgive this around them. A heart warming story for all.
What pre-school/kindergarten age child doesn't love Curious George? Combine George with Santa and you have a winning combination.
Andd Becker
The book is written by someone who is not a Rey; the illustrations are done in the style of the original illustrator.
George goes on a madcap adventure (as usual!) and ends up at the children's wing of the local hospital.

Sweet story.
Jasmine Olivia
