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.
Curious George Dance Party CGTV Readerby H. A. Rey
George is thrilled when he gets an invitation to Allie’s dance party: “He danced while he brushed his teeth. Sometimes he even danced while he slept.” His friend Bill, however, is worried he’ll be the only one who can’t dance. The two of them quickly learn the box step with the help of a color-coded map—and it’s a hit! This colorful early reader—based on the Emmy Award–winning Curious George PBS TV show—includes a simple pattern activity and instructions on how to make a dance map.
