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
H. A. Rey
H. A. Rey (1898–1977) was born in Hamburg, Germany, near the world-famous Hagenbeck Zoo, and developed a lifelong love for animals and drawing. He and his wife, Margret (1906–1996), who studied art at the acclaimed Bauhaus school, had many pets—including two marmoset monkeys that joined them on one of their steamship journeys across the Atlantic. Hans and Margret's world-famous curious monkey first appeared in a manuscript strapped to their bicycles as they fled wartime Paris for the safety of the United States. Committed philanthropists in their own lives, a portion of proceeds from each Curious George book sold flows to the Curious George Foundation, which funds programs for children that encourage inquisitiveness in learning and exploring. Curious George has been successfully adapted into a major motion picture and an Emmy-winning television show on PBS.www.curiousgeorge.com.
