The first time I was introduced to Curious George was when the movie came out. I was young and had been a fan of Jack Johnson since I was a baby. I remember his music being what made the movie so special for me. I still think I have that whole CD lying around somewhere. Now that I'm older it's nice to see the movie that I loved has really grown into books I can share with the little ones in my life. This book lives up to everything you could hope for from Curious George. He's just as curious, mi ...more
I gave this one three stars only because my son likes it a lot and requests it often. My own personal rating for this one would be 2 stars (at best). It's not actually written by the Reys, but rather "in the style of." This may in fact be the case of most of the Curious George books at our library, I'm not sure how many of them were written and illustrated by the original creator(s).
There's a bit too much text and I don't feel like it flows very well. And while the dogs are cute--what kid doesn

As George unlatches the door the entire litter escapes and run amuch the shelter. Together with the help of the animal shelter director an ...more

My love of reading started when i was young, and it gives me immense pleasure to provide books to Spread the Word Nevada, an organization that passes them on to children in the community. They are a terrific organization supporting an important cause. If your local I encourage you to check them out. For those living further a field, look in your own community, their may already be a similar program in place. And if not, you can always help start one.

George and the man with the yellow hat found a lost kitten. At the animal shelter, CG snooped around. He followed barking noises to a room filled with dogs where he saw a cage filled with puppies. He opened the cage to pet one and all the puppies ran out! The director and man with the yellow hat put the puppies back in the cage but they could still hear one barking. It was the missing puppy and it was locked in a different room. The director was so happy to find it, she gave George his own puppy ...more

Curious George is always perfectly drawn. And I like the stories that are created around him. I just have difficulty with a monkey in captivity. And I find the man in the yellow hat a bit creepy. If I can set aside my initial reservations and prejudices, this book was an adorable story.

When I read this book to my five-year-old son, he saw Curious George as a five-year-old boy. He enjoyed the story, and I enjoyed the artwork.
George and the man with the yellow hat find a small kitten in the park. They decided to take him to an animal shelter. This is Georges first visit so he is so excited to see all the animals, especially the puppies. He accidently lets them out when he is left unsupervised. Everyone ends up getting the puppies rounded up and they find the missing puppy, thanks to George. This book is good for teaching sequencing.

One of the original stories, can't get any better than those. This one George and the man find a lost kitten in the park. They take it to the animal shelter while they are there they look around. And George as curious as he is he got into trouble and let all the animals out but in the end a Mama Dog finds her lost puppy that had George not let her out wouldn't have been found. A good book to teach children the importance of animal shelters, and going there to get their new pet.

Everyone has to work together to find all the puppies and at the end, George gets to choose a puppy to take home with him.

George goes to the animal shelter with the man with the yellow hat. The doctor warns them that there's a missing puppy. George is left alone and finds where they keep the dogs. When he opens the cage to play with the dogs they escape. The mother dog starts barking at the door and they discover the missing puppy was in the closet.
Jasmine from How Useful It Is
My 3 year old loves Curious George. He watches all TV shows on all 6 seasons on Netflix. He watches many reruns on TV. Recently I bought him about 15 different books. He learns a lot from it. Great series, books and TV shows. He enjoys this book tonight. I read him 5 curious George books a night. He likes me to read and re-read them for him.
Curious George is always getting himself into trouble. This time he is at an animal shelter with the man in the yellow hat. He sees many animals there, but he is very interested in the puppies. What will happen when he tries to pet one?
This book can be used in the classroom to talk about making predictions and sequencing.
Even though she likes the cartoon show and stuffed animals of George, Natalie wasn't ready for a George book. I forced our way through it during lunch because every other time she closed the book or wandered off. The story was cute; very typical George. I liked the best when the puppies are all over. The text and illustration went really well together.
The Brothers
Curious George wreaks his special brand of havoc at the local animal rescue. But as usual, his naughtiness is rewarded by ultimately turning up some good.

Typical Curious George illustrations.

I think this book would be good to promote children's thought process. In this book the characters are presented with problems. I would use this book to help children develop problem solving skills that they can use later on.

21 months - the moral of this story find a kitty and trade it in for a new model... A puppy instead. I don't know why I can't keep from thinking this every time we read this story. You of course enjoy any Curious George story.

So it's Curious George Marathon week at the Rodriguez house. It's a fair selection but likely won't be a classic.

Wy LOVES "Goge" and puppies, so this one is a win-win all around!

The pictures and story line in this book are wonderful. I reAd it to a reluctant reader during a 3 hour car ride and he insisted that I read it over and over.
This is a fun one. Chloe and I like reading this one in a silly manner lately, switching words around and such.

Nakyla loves the George books. Sometimes there is a little big of oddness to them. I think if they were published for the first time today, they wouldn't be very popular.

One of the better George books :)
Clearly I am in the wrong profession if someone could be making a ton of money with a book franchise with not-too-clever ideas. Curious George remains an adorable cartoon, however.

"It's good. Because I like puppies. It is fun that George finds puppies."
Not a dog lover but this was a fun book to read. Grayson's great-grandma got him this for Christmas along with a very soft stuffed puppy! :)

I read this to my daughter while we were on the emergency room for an injured neck. It had been a long time since I'd read a book to her and we both enjoyed it very much. She's 16. And ok.

A fun Curious George story about a trip to the animal shelter. Curious George is again too curious for his own good.
