Showcasing George, the Man With the Yellow Hat, and lots of their furry friends, this book points out and labels body parts like hair (under the yellow hat), nose (a bunny sniffs), ear (a cat washes up), tongue (doggy takes a drink) and eyes (George can see you!).
With a bright, shiny mirror on each spread, this book is a nice new additon to a line of toddler concept board books. Other titles include Curious George Color Fun, Curious George Before and After, Curious George Bigger and Smaller, Curious George Shapes, Curious George Seasons, and Curious George at the Zoo.
About 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.

My daughter is in love with Curious George, so I picked up a few involving this guy. This book has been great, as she is big into interactive books too. I am also trying to teach her parts of her body, like eyes, nose, ears. Perfect book!
