Foster a love for reading and learning all summer long with reading adventures of Curious George. Even if your little one hasn’t started preschool yet, you can encourage a love of reading with Curious George.
Curious George’s Box of Books
This set of four classic Curious George board books comes in a cardboard box. It is the perfect set for preschool age children two and up. My friend’s son is a huge fan of Curious George and these books were perfect for him. He just turned three!
He learns about basic concepts—including the alphabet, opposites, emotions, and counting (forward and backward)—with the help of Curious George.
The books included in the set are: Opposites; Are You Curious?; 1 to 10 and Back Again; and ABC’s.
Curious George’s 1 to 10 and Back Again– Help Curious George count ten of his favorite things, first forward and then backward.
Curious George’s Opposite– George is up to his usual mischief in the simple book of opposites.
Curious George’s Are You Curious?– Curious children can read along with mom & dad to see if they behave like the monkey best known for getting in and out of mischief.
Curious George’s ABCs– Read from A to Z along with George in a revised version of the classic Curious George Learns the Alphabet.
All four books are great for learning and are sturdy enough to hold up to repetitive use. The stories them self are simple, fun and engaging. My friend commented that they are perfect for long road trips in the car this Summer!
Curious George 2nd Readers
If your child is beginning to read independently, keep the learning going with Curious George in Super George and Curious George in Follow that Hat. Both of the following books are written in comic form. The Illustrations in the book are brightly colorful and engaging. Both books are more geared towards children already beginning to read. My daughter is still on first reader books, therefore she struggled with some of the words in the book, but was able to read both books along with me and was even able to read some of the words independently on her own.
