Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Eleanor Heldrich
The featured character in this foldout sheet of heavy cardstock is a small brown monkey named Curious George, based on the character created by Margaret and H. Rey. This is not a typical book. There are seven 7 ½" by 7" sections that fold out completely into a 7 ½½" by 49" cardboard wall of words and pictures with color pictures on one side and black and white images on the other. When the pages are folded together into book form, a flap fits over the front edge to hold it all together. Instructions on the back suggest ways to "Laugh, listen and learn with your curious baby," including standing the accordion-like book up on edge so baby can see it stretched out; choosing to introduce a color a day; and examining the all the different shapes on the black and white side. A blurb on the back cover says that babies see close-up, high-contrast images best, which is why they will enjoy the black and white pictures. Reviewer: Eleanor Heldrich

Meet the Author

Hans Augusto Rey was born in Hamburg, Germany in 1898. As a child, he spent much of his free time in that city's famous Hagenbeck Zoo drawing animals. After serving in the army during World War I, he married Margret Rey and they moved to Montmartre for four years. The manuscript for the first Curious George books was one of the few items the Reys carried with them on their bicycles when they escaped from Paris in 1940. Eventually, they made their way to the United States, and Curious George was published in 1941. Curious George has been published in numerous languages. And many, many Curious George books have followed.

This is my new go-to baby shower gift. I was given a copy when my daughter was born and the high contrast is engaging for tummy time, like few other gadgets and gizmos. The stand-alone element (it unfolds accordion style) makes it so they have more than one direction to try and look. I loaned it to a friend and they used it literally to death, though it is sturdy I think it just got nommed a bit too much. Now that my daughter is 2 she still likes looking at "George" and the colors. I wish I could buy them in bulk to have on hand for baby showers.
