A wonderful collection of great Curious George stories. A solid level 2 reading level book, my 5 yr old has been reading this all on his own for a week. He'd read a chapter (a story) or two and then use some of his new bookmarkers I bought him to keep track of where he was. When he finally finished it, he was so proud of himself for finishing a chapter book all on his own! There are more of these, I recently saw a blue one at a used book store, but decided to wait until he finished this one to s ...more

I like the story called Curious George Goes to the Library, because I like going to the library because I like getting books to put them on Goodreads so I could get more books after I add all the books that are in my house, you have to have to have a lot of time to go on Goodreads, like on Sunday you have enough time to go on Goodreads.
This is my first time going on Goodreads and I'm excited.

I never realised that my parents were familiar with Curious George. Curious was often getting into scrapes and my parents would often call me a little monkey, which Curious is known as. The difference was that there was usually an adjective preceding the Little Monkey moniker applied to me - it was more often than not, 'cheeky' or 'naughty' because unlike Curious, whose adventures usually turned out well for everybody, my escapades usually did not! However Curious is the cutest little monkey you ...more

My two-year-old son Hugh's on-going love - nay, obsession - with "the George book" continues. This is the second book of collected stories I've added to his ever-expanding library (I have one more to give him, which I'm saving for our 21-hour-long plane ride as a surprise!), and he quickly embraced it with just as much love as he did Curious George: Stories to Share (the yellow one).

The stories in this volume are:
Curious George Takes a Train (2002)
Curious George Visits a Toy Store (2002)

Perfect book for preschool aged kids. Although George does get into some naught things he always does the right thing in the end!

Ozman loves trains and Curious George, and luckily there's both in this collection! There's also birthday, Christmas, and Halloween stories so the kiddies can learn about those holidays. I still love how the George oeuvre never mentions once that the city is New York but it is definitely a character in the last story. Now my question is, does the man in the yellow hat live in Westchester at his farm upstate or does he live in Connecticut? #askingtherealquestions

These stories are not the originals by the Reys, but they're true to the spirit of the originals if a bit formulaic (you notice that when you read all eight at once). My four-year-old son still loved them!

Contains the following stories:
Curious George Takes a Train
Curious George Visits a Toy Store
Curious George and the Dump Truck
Curious George and the Birthday Surprise
Curious George Goes Camping
Curious George Goes to a Costume Party
Curious George Visits the Library
Curious George in the Big City

I had a few of the original H.A. Rey Curious George books growing up. These are not quite as good but have made good bedtime stories for my girls.

Curious George and the Train

Curious George is waiting to take a train but gets into trouble when he "helps" with the time table but saves a little boy.

Curious George and the Toy Store

Curious George goes to the grand opening of a toy store and causes "monkey business."

Curious George and the Dump Truck

Curious George follows some ducks to the park and inv

I can't love George myself. What a lie: "This is George. He was a good little monkey, but always very curious." He's a punko monkey who's destructive all the time. He runs away or people give him a break, so he never even has any consequences for being such a punk. And where is the man with the yellow hat all the time?! You get this monkey and just let him run wild in stores, train stations, and through the town. I'm pretty sure this monkey would have been taken out of his custody by this point. ...more

This collection of 8 "new" Curious George stories are written and illustrated in the style of the original George books. They are definitely not illustrated by H.A. Rey himself, but I find it rather unclear whether or not Margret Rey wrote them (or maybe collaborated on them?) These stories are shorter than the originals and cover a nice range of adventures, including one for Halloween and one for Christmas. I find them to be true to the spirit of the originals and follow George through his usua ...more

All the Curious George that's Fit to Print

Here's a collection of Curious George certain to delight children while teaching them important life lessons.

In Curious George Takes the Train, the young monkey teaches kids the value of tempting fate by reaching over a platform ledge at a train station to save a toy.

In Curious George Visits a Toy Store, the young monkey teaches us how to endear yourself to business owners despite tearing apart their store.

My son loves the animated Curious George show on PBS, so I remembered that he received this book for Christmas last year. I had put it away because he's 2 and I didn't want him ripping it to shreds. Last night I took it out of the top drawer and began reading. He was entranced and as soon as I finished the first story, insisted I "read 'nother one." So, I did. Then he cried to read a third. His eyes were so droopy that I refused to read anymore, but we will be reading more tonight. I'm so glad t ...more

When I bought itmy son would not look at it but after his second birthday he relized he had a stuffed George monkey and these were stories about his monkey. he began to get the book and want me to read it to him. The stories are a bit longer than his favorite books but he usually got through one a day. I am proud to say it is now a beloved book on his shelf and he really enjoys it. The book includes Curious Geaorge takes a train, visits a toy store, and the dumptruck, and the Birthday surprise, ...more

I never read much Curious George as a kid, although I was definitely familiar with them. My son was introduced to him on PBS Kids. And when I saw this collection of stories, I thought it was important that he be exposed to the original media. This collection, however, is of stories published between 1999 and 2003 and they are not illustrated by the H. A. Rey. Nevertheless, these are delightful stories with rich vibrant illustrations which to my limited knowledge are indistinguishable from the or ...more

In this anthology of the new Curious George stories, George jumps into exploring life in a way only a curious monkey – or child – can. He makes a mess in the kitchen trying to frost a cake, rearranges the books in a library, accidentally operates a dump truck, and delights in riding for the first time the subway in New York City. It is a wonderful collection filled with fun and adventure.

My girls love hearing the stories in this book - sometimes all at once.

And now that my six-year-old is beginning to read on her own, we have fun reading this together...or taking turns, with her reading one story and me the next. My four-year-old even tries to get in on the "reading" herself, usually parroting what I read.

This is a great collection of stories the whole family can enjoy together. There's not a single reason I wouldn't recommend it to anyone and everyone.
