Read to Me Dad Review

Is there any children’s book character as curious as that little monkey George. I don’t think so. The other day I was leaving for a work trip and spent some time with Eva reading Curious George: Visits a Toy Store. Our friends Amy and Ryan and their son watch the TV show about curious George. We’re trying to keep Eva from TV as long as possible so reading to her is what she has right now. She did sit still for most of the book too.

Read to Me Dad Ratings

  • Story – Good – Standard Curious George fare. George gets into trouble and it all works out in the end.
  • Re-Read-ability – Good. I think as Eva begins to identify with characters she will enjoy George very much.
  • Illustrations – Excellent – George is classic and the books and illustrations are as well.
  • Message – Good – As long as you are a cute monkey you can get away with anything.
  • Plot – Good – Standard for George. George causes some trouble but in the end things work out.
  • Characters – Good – George is always a good character and kids love him and his adventures.
  • Does Eva Like It – She did her best George impression after we read the book. She tried reading the book with her feet, that cute little monkey of ours.
  • Recommended AgesBaby-Preschool

    I just recently started reading Curious George to my daughter. My parents gave us a CG anthology that includes seven books. I remember really liking the series when I was a kid, but reading it as an adult is a different experience. One of the things I’ve noticed is that the humans like to put George to work and are surprised when he screws up. Hello! He’s a monkey!

    The best message of the books is that George would not have gotten into trouble if he had listened and done as he was told. I always emphasize these points when I’m reading them to my daughter. Maybe some day she’ll get it.

    Heather,
    Thanks so much for the insight and the comment. Eva will certainly be learning more about George in the years to come. I’ll have to look into that anthology.
