Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Sharon Salluzzo
Seven double-page spreads, with a tab for each one introduces young children to various aspects of Christmas as Curious George counts down the days. Six days before Christmas, he wraps presents; five days to go and he selects his Christmas tree; four days to go and he cuts out and bakes cookies. With three days to go until Christmas, he and the Man in the Yellow Suit look at the decorated shop windows in the city. With two days to go Curious George takes part in the Christmas play. On Christmas Eve George makes gifts for his friends. Finally, it is Christmas. The activities for each day are told in sing-song rhyming verses. This serves as an ordinary introduction to Christmas traditions. The illustrations are in the style of H. A. Rey as seen on the television series. Reviewer: Sharon Salluzzo

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 studied philology and natural science at the University of Hamburg. He then 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 many languages, including French, German, Japanese, Afrikaans, and Norwegian. Additional Curious George books followed, as well as such other favorites as CECILY G. AND THE NINE MONKEYS and FIND THE CONSTELLATIONS.
