CURIOUS GEORGE GOES TO THE HOSPITAL

KIRKUS REVIEW

The nicest thing about the Curious George books is that while beginning readers are convinced that they are just enjoying themselves with George, their supervising adults are equally sure that they are learning something. Both are absolutely right. This time around George's insatiable curiosity lands him in the hospital. He swallowed a piece of a jigsaw puzzle, and kept this as an inside secret until the man in the yellow hat took the distressed George to the hospital. Here, all of the hospital routines, from getting into bed to being taken to surgery are illustrated and described. George goes from being uncharacteristically subdued to a convalescence that is contagiously funny. The book was written in collaboration with the Children's Hospital Medical Center of Boston. If your reader must be prepped for surgery, let George do it.
