I think my son loves Curious George because it makes him feel better about being so curious himself… he knows that he’s not the only one that finds himself in troublesome situations; but also knows that you can also “fix” them.

I do not remember reading Curious George as a child, but I am sure I did! My children absolutely adore him. For quite a while, we had to watch the first movie EVERY day! They loved it. The music was so delightful and the actions of George, always in trouble, kept them quite amused. They also fell in love with George on TV and in book. I would love to win this for them!

Thank you for the chance to win!
