Curious George’s Are You Curious? – H.A. Rey
This books is not as some reviewers state one of the original 7 books attributed to H.A. Rey and his wife. It is available as a standalone board book or part of the ‘Curious Gorge Box of Books’ which contains the following titles:
Curious George’s Opposites
Curious George’s 1 to 10 and Back Again
Curious George’s ABC’s
Curious George’s Are You Curious?
My youngest and I recently read this book through a number of times. The first time through I helped her a bit. Buy the third or fourth time through she was reading the whole book to me. I am not sure where my daughter picked up this board book edition. We have 2 copies of the complete Curious George at home, and I have read them to all three children and even my oldest has taken to reading it to the younger children.
This book fills a different niche. It is a simple board book with familiar characters , it helps to explain feelings and will give some children a greater context to be able to express themselves. It is a fun little book, and my daughter loves it.
