I really enjoyed this book. Curious George is very entertaining with great illustrations. This story in particular gave some decent information about animals in the aquarium. I will definitely have this book in my classroom.

Un libro para niños. Muy fácil. Esto es bueno, porque yo nunca practico español hablando/leyendo. Yo necesito cambiar eso.

Penguins! Curious George! Aquariums!

This is the perfect combination! Since a young girl, my mother has read me Curious George. My sister is an absolute penguin lover (they are so cute, its hard NOT to like them). Aquariums and zoos have always been some of my favorite places to visit.

This book excited me from the moment I picked it up. Every time I pay a visit to Curious George, I know we're bound to be mischievous and end up it just a little bit of trouble. =)

Love how this book focuses on the aquarium. My son, D and I have been there but when was 2 so he probably doesn't remember but I love discussing topics with him and it was fun talking about sea life. I like to see what good George does in every story, in this one he saves a baby penguin from falling into the water.

I love the aquarium, and I love Curious George at the Aquarium! This is a great book that explores many different areas of an aquarium like the whales, the deep water creatures, the shallow tanks and of course, the penguins. George sneaks in to the penguin exhibit and ends of saving a penguin chick that falls in the water unseen.
Jennifer
I used this book in my classroom along with the short movie by the same name. I asked my students these questions: What do you think the word impatient means? What did George do that he shouldn't have? What did George do that was good? This book reminds me of things that my students do - good and bad all day long!
Kristy Schwertfeger
This was a classic Curious George book, where George goes to the aquarium and gets into trouble. But always by the end of the story he helps out somebody. In this book he saves a baby penguin. This book would be good to use when studying ocean life because it talks about all the animals in the aquarium.
Kristy
Eh. Still searching for the George that I loved as a kid...and haven't found him yet. Shrug. Most of these stories just seem pointless to me. Let's go to the aquarium, reek havok among the penquins, save one, and become the star of the show. Mhmmmm. Whatever you say, George.
Kelsey Scherer
Before you know it, George is in with the penguins and ends up setting them all free. The visit is crazy until he saves the day by grabbing a baby penguin, who cannot swim, before it hits the water. Another fun and entertaining book about that silly Curious George.

Tucked under the front cover is my map of the Monterey Bay Aquarium which is where I purchased this book. The text provides a good introduction to aquarium life and the perfect springboard into learning about sea creatures.
Jessica Howard
So everyone thanks George for saving the baby penguin... but he had to save it because all the other penguins got away because he LET THEM OUT. Oh the logical fallacies of children's books. Of course, E loved it.
Kelly
My little monkey boy loves reading about Curious George. Follows the typical formula for a book in this series. George helps return Penguins to their exhibit after he accidentally lets them out.
LeiAnn
I just read this book to my daughter she was moving and all of that good stuff eight month old bbies do. She went to sleep afterwards. So I guess I can say she like the book,lol.

We have this book as an iphone app (with Mao narrating) and also as a gift from Tee-tee and Degor.

I love penguins. My favorite part is when george saves the penguin. That was so cute.

Nayeli Jimenez
I like the part when he saves the baby pinguin.
