Curious George Learns the AlphabetH.A. Rey
"This is George. He lived with his friend, the man with the yellow hat. He was a good little monkey, but he was always curious…"
So begins every story featuring the curious little monkey. This time George is curious about books and “what one could do with them.”
The general storyline starts out with George rummaging through the man’s book shelves ripping his books into pieces. "You don't tear a book apart to find out what's in it," the Man said. "You READ it, George. Books are full of stories. Stories are made of words, and words are made of letters. If you want to read a story first you have to know the letters fo the alphabet."
I couldn’t have explained it better myself! So simple and easy an explanation; now onto my favorite part of this book, the Illustrations! Both capital and small case letters are represented. Upon further inspection you may notice that the letter is also highlighted in the story itself, just so you can visualize how that particular letter creates a word. Brilliant, no?
Of course what does George do after learning the alphabet? Why, he changes an order for ONE Dozen Doughnuts, to TEN Dozen Doughnuts!
This book is such a fun read. The Boog and I received it as a hand -me -down from her older cousin. Thank goodness too! I was never into Curious George so I probably would have overlooked this one had I not so graciously received it from my sister. If you haven’t read it, and have a 3 or 4 year old, I recommend finding a copy right now!
