Curious George Storybook Collection


Curious George Storybook Collection. 2010. September 2010. Houghton Mifflin Harcourt. 197 pages.

The eight stories in the Curious George Storybook Collection are adaptations of episodes of the television show. Included in this compilation:
  • Curious George: The Donut Delivery (Adapted by Monica Perez, Teleplay by Joe Fallon, 2006)
  • Curious George: Snowy Day (Adapted by Rotem Moscovich, Teleplay by Lazar Saric, 2007)
  • Curious George: The Surprise Gift (Adapted by Erica Zappy, Teleplay by Raye Lankford, 2008)
  • Curious George: The Boat Show (Adapted by Kate O'Sullivan, Teleplay by Raye Lankford, 2008)
  • Curious George: Builds a Home (Adapted by Monica Perez, Teleplay by Joe Fallon, 2006)
  • Curious Geoge: Lost and Found (Adapted by Erica Zappy, Teleplay by Joe Fallon, 2008)
  • Curious George: Plays Mini Golf (Adapted by Marcy Goldberg Sacks, Teleplay by Craig Miller, 2008)
  • Curious George: Tadpole Trouble (Adapted by Mark London Williams, Teleplay by Bruce Akiyama, 2007)
If you enjoy the TV show, then you'll probably enjoy reading this storybook collection. Each book has extension activities. For example, you can learn to make a paper boat in Curious George The Boat Show or a paper snowflake in Curious George Snowy Day.

My favorite story is The Donut Delivery! Here is how that story begins,
"George is always a good monkey--when he's asleep. But no monkey wants to sleep through Saturday. This was a Saturday that cried out for something special..."
