When his friend Bill asks George to mind his model boat, George accidentally sinks the boat right before a model boat competition.
Experimenting with the buoyancy of his toys, though, George is able to construct another boat that floats. Level one in Houghton’s new reader line means that text is minimal and simple, perfect for readers learning to sound out words and looking at art for visual clues.
Activities include making a paper boat and experimenting with buoyancy.
About the Author
H. A. Rey
Hans and Margret Rey created many books during their lives together, including Curious George, one of the most treasured classics of all time, as well as other favorites like Spotty and Pretzel. But it was their rambunctious little monkey who became an instantly recognizable icon. After the Reys escaped Paris by bicycle in 1940 carrying the manuscript for the original Curious George, the book was published in America in 1941. More than 200 Curious George titles followed, with 75 million books sold worldwide. Curious George has been successfully adapted into a major motion picture and an Emmy-winning television show on PBS. www.curiousgeorge.com.
