Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature
In an oversized, inviting format, these large, lively pages count out the fun. George, the appealing little monkey who is curious but always kind (and now a century old), is certainly on a roll in this book. The story has a natural flow as it teaches the basic concept of counting to 100. Each number has its own set of items. For example, when the happy monkey gets to number 88, there are actually 88 pickles, and at 91, there are 91 candies. With such a long way to go it would be easy to lose track of the tale and to lose the interest of young readers, but this book makes it all the way to 100 with ease. Using engaging vignettes featuring George and the ubiquitous gentleman with his canary yellow cowboy hat, the story ambles through a day in the life of the unlikely pair. Each page is an adventure as they encounter all sorts of items that need to be counted by young math practitioners: balloons, boats and babies, bugs, and blocks and balls. Naturally, they see their share of windows, houses, popcorn, windmills, cupcakes, and cookies, too. Little fingers will want to touch and tally each item, so remember not to start this one too close to bedtime. 2005, Houghton Mifflin Company, Ages 4 to 7.

School Library Journal
PreS-Gr 1-Curious George is back in this counting adventure that is chock-full of activities such as grouping, mapping, and sorting questions, prompted by a little blue bird that travels with him throughout the book. Readers will enjoy exploring with the monkey as he and the man with the yellow hat go from home to school to the town's Centennial Celebration. Hines's color illustrations in the style of H. A. Rey contain many things for young learners to count, including a parade of ants, leaves blowing in the air, and rungs on a ladder, so this title may be best for sharing one-on-one. Ideas for using the story to enhance learning as well as ways to explore numbers are included at the end of the book.-Tracy Bell, Eastway Elementary School, Durham, NC Copyright 2005 Reed Business Information.

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.
