Overview

Curious George Home Run (CGTV Early Reader) by H. A. Rey

George is excited to go to his first baseball game to watch his friend Marco play. While Marco concentrates on hitting his first home run, George gets to play scorekeeper. But George doesn't know in which order he should hang the numbers. With help from Marco and the girl at the snack stand, George learns about number sequence and a handy trick for putting double digits in order.

During the last inning, George agrees to be a pinch runner for an injured Marco. Will he be able to add another number to the scoreboard?

Includes rules of the game and a score-keeping activity.

About the Author

The Reys were born in Hamburg, Germany. Hans Augusto Rey (1898-1977) met his wife-to-be, Margret (1906-1996), at a party in her father's home in Germany; when he first caught a glimpse of her, she was sliding down the banister. In their twenties and thirties they lived in Paris and in Rio de Janeiro, where Hans sold bathtubs in villages along the Amazon River. Eventually Cambridge, Massachusetts, became the Reys' home and community. Throughout their lives the Reys created many lively books together, including SPOTTY, PRETZEL, and lift-the-flap books such as HOW DO YOU GET THERE? The manuscript of 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. Their incorrigible little monkey has become an American icon, selling millions of books and capturing the hearts of readers everywhere. 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.

It's such a cute book. My daughter just recently showed interest in Curious George, so she's not too into this book. But hopefully soon!
