A few years ago my husband and I gave A Treasury of Curious George by Margaret and H.A. Rey to our oldest daughter for Christmas. The eight stories in this book are classic stories that we have read to all of our children over and over. My kids have also enjoyed looking at the pictures in this book on their own and retelling the stories to each other. If you are looking for a great book to give to a young child, A Treasury of Curious George is a sure bet!

Summary: Our family LOVES all things Curious George! We enjoyed the movies, really liked the PBS series, and absolutely love the books. Today was “Dinosaur Day” at our Vacation Bible School, so I checked out this book to read to the toddler/preschool class that I was teaching. Curious George’s Dinosaur Discovery is short and entertaining with simple, colorful illustrations. The kids enjoyed anticipating George’s next trouble in his adventure and I appreciated that I did not feel the need to skip over parts of the book or change wording to make it fit the true story of dinosaurs.
Pros: A book about dinosaurs that leaves out the controversial “science.” Simple, entertaining, colorful.
Age Range: 2-7 years
