    It reminds me of trips to the library with my little monkey...although my daughter wondered what those old fashioned due date "stamp" things were...

    "This is George. He is a good little monkey and always very curious." I love it when books that are in a children's series all start the same. I helps students with predictability. The rest of the story is pretty predictable also if you have read any other curious George books. I don't think any other animal goes on more adventures than curious George. This time, George goes to the library. He notices all of the people looking at book and reading. Then he finds children's story hour. At first, G "This is George.

This time, George goes to the library. He notices all of the people looking at book and reading. Then he finds children's story hour. At first, George is excited, but then he gets a little impatient because he wants the librarian to read the book about dinosaurs. Eventually, he can't wait anymore, and he takes the book and rushes out of story hour. Then another book catches his eye, then another then another, etc. Finally, George finds s cart to put all of his books on. Then he tries to leave the library with his cart of books. This is when the disaster happens. George feels bad and helps clean up. He then gets a library card and the man with the yellow hat comes back and they go home. Again, this is a very predictable book, but children seem to always love the fact that they kind of know what is going to happen. They may not know what kind of disaster he will get into, but they do know that he will get into something. He also always helps clean up his mess. Curious George gives parents a good time to discuss what he should have done instead of going about things the way that he does. The illustrations, done by Martha Weston, done in the style of H.A. Rey, are done in watercolor and charcoal pencil. They are very colorful yet simple. They follow the storyline very well, and even add to the story. I love the page where it shows George getting impatient. As a former teacher, I have seen students get this way. I would recommend this book to Preschool through 3rd grade. I think it would be a great book to read to students before they go to the library to help teach them some of the behaviors that are expected in the library. I would also recommend this book to anyone who enjoys other Curious George books.

I nursed while Mama read about George and his friend going to the library to explore the children’s section. That curious monkey accidentally caused a ruckus in the public library when he got excited by all the books!! It started during children’s story time, when George got distracted by some of the books around him. The librarian was busy reading to the children, and that gave George just enough time to get into trouble. You’ll have to read the book for yourself to find out if George was able to put the library back in order. The illustrations were simple and colorful; we think they were drawn with colored pencil. Mama and I enjoyed them almost as much as the story. We recommend this book to anyone who wants to chuckle at the adventures of a silly monkey named George. We look forward to continuing the series!!

    "This is George. He is a good little monkey and is always very curious." So begins this fun story about Curious George's first trip to the library. My students love Curious George and they were delighted this week when I brought in my husband's Curious George stuffed animal from when he was a boy. This would be a great story to review library expectations and book care with my younger students, or to talk about getting your very own public library card.

    It was ok. I liked it better when he went to the intensive care unit. But it's okay, for a sequel.

    Mom's Review: Obviously you know why I picked this one out for Jake when he was little. I read it to him at least once a week and he enjoyed it -- as well as the rest of the Curious George stories. It seemed to work as he really enjoyed going to the library -- so far hasn't worked for Jesse, he still doesn't like the library. It's a cute little story, but a wee bit dated. As well the patrons of the library and the library staff are a little too stereotypical for this modern library worker.

As well the patrons of the library and the library staff are a little too stereotypical for this modern library worker. One of the patrons even shushes George -- I know, it made me mad too LOL! The library workers are nice though, so the Rey's are forgiven. This story has the usual storyline of George getting into mischief, learning a lesson and cleaning up after his mistakes. It teaches kids a good moral lesson without being too preachy and George is so adorable to read about. Parents, teachers, Librarians and kids will all enjoy. Mom's Rating: 9/10 Jake's Review: Mom says I loved it as a kid, but I think she must have been exaggerating. It is a funny story and I love how much trouble George gets into. He's not a bad monkey, he just is very curious and doesn't like to stay still (Mom's note: hmm reminds me of my boys). The pictures are kinda old fashioned and I think it is definitely written for younger kids, but I still did like it -- though not as much as mom. She is a nerdy librarian after all Jake's Rating: 7/10

    Curious George Visits the Library by Margaret and H.A. Rey is a picture book. The age group this book is intended for is nursery to primary. The book describes an impatient and curious monkey, who just wants to hear a book about dinosaurs, at story time. Once he’s waited long enough, he take the dinosaur book and browses the library for more books. I liked this book, but I chose to borrow it from the library as an ebook. I don’t have a kindle or nook, so I downloaded a program to my PC. The writi Curious George Visits the Library by Margaret and H.A. Rey is a picture book.

I don’t have a kindle or nook, so I downloaded a program to my PC. The writing was on the outside of the page because what was on the page was unreadable. I was not found of the ebook on my PC. The plot builds from George waiting patiently to him going to explore, and then, the cart crashes and all the children come to help clean up the books. The pictures fit the text well; they look like colored sketches with strong outlines and not much detail. I would recommend this for young readers because it encourages children to explore books and you don’t have to read them all at once, but the library has plenty to choose from and borrow.

    Curious George Visits the Library is a picture book written by Margret Rey and illustrated in the style of H.A. Rey by Martha Weston. In this book, everyone's favourite mischievous monkey goes on an adventure to the library for story hour.

Adventure ensues as George travels through the library finding more and more books, and making a bigger and bigger mess, along the way. This book will appeal to fans of Curious George books, as it has the same charm and classic illustration style as the rest of the series. However, I wouldn't consider it one of the best of those books (that honor would have to go the original Curious George). Overall, it is still a cute story, and would be a great book to read aloud to young (about 4-7 year old) children.

A library card can help a child gain a better understanding of property and a sense of having something to call his or her very own. This small task may help these students to further their love for reading even more. Ideas for activity came from http://www.brighthubeducation.com/pre...

    Since I work at the library, this was an obvious choice for a bedtime book. And judging by my experience, it is a pretty accurate portrayal of a library visit, except that no one asked for a parent's ID for George to get his card, George was left at storytime to be babysat (a big no-no), and there were no consequences for his little library destruction caper. All in all, though, this is a satisfying and entertaining book.

    H.A. Rey's works are always legendary, and Curious George is infamous. What I found most interesting about this work, is how it captures history in a very unintentional way. The children loved the story, but they also loved finding out how we used to go about our book lending without fancy computers, scanners, and kindles. It's very interesting on that level. Curious George Visits the Library is a classic that should be preserved just like our Libraries.

    This book is a great one for students to make a text-to-self- connection. It shares about George's adventure to the library for story time and to obtain a library card so he can check out some fun and interesting books. Although it is hard for him to sit still during the story time, the library adventure ends well and George realizes just how fun reading can be. Perfect book to read to students when introducing the library to them.

    Despite the terrible overtones of the original Curious George books, George himself is a loveable character, and when you combine him with books and libraries, what's not to love? Admittedly we see no computers or other modern library features in this book, the idea of storytime and the appeal of picking out books-- plus the mostly-harmless trouble that George's curiousity gets him into-- shines through.

    This story is a great way for teachers and parents to teach children about following rules for the library. This story will encourage children to be excited about visiting the library and reading books! This story makes children aware of following the library rules and having their own library card. A learning extension for this story could be how should children treat their library books. I love all the Curious George books and this book is one of my favorites!!

    In Curious George Visits the Library he shows he love of reading by wanting to take a cart full of books home but in the end George and the man with yellow hat take a few books home. Then it shows Curious George reading with the man with the yellow hat. This is an excellent way to show young children that books are fun and reading is enjoyable to establish a love for reading at a young age.

    The kindergartners and first graders enjoyed this story, even if I didn't appreciate that George faces no consequences. The Man and the librarian never explain to him how he should have acted differently. One class pointed out how he shouldn't have taken the book or ridden the cart down the ramp, but the other classes didn't, and I think those things should have been discussed in the book.

    If I was a curious little monkey at the library I probably would have done exactly what George did. However, I think if I was a monkey in the library Animal Control would probably get called on me. Anyway, my daughter enjoyed this book and was excited that George liked the same kind of books that she did. Would recommend.

    My favorite little monkey takes a trip to the library and participates in story hour. As we all know it is hard for little monkeys to stay out of trouble. A great book about reading and the library.

    On the back cover, there's a maze (Help George find his way to the librarian or something like that). I showed this to my 3-year-old daughter, and it started a one-week whirlwind love affair with mazes.

    I read this title as part of a Rey compilation and enjoyed re-reading it as a highlighted title from DPL to introduce libraries to children. George is such a role model to have is own library card! If only our branch allowed cart rides - ha!

    George takes a trip to the library, initially he wanted a book about dinosaurs, but he started to wander around looking at all the books to borrow-- and he and I seem to have something in common! he wanted to read pretty much everything he saw! Hahaha

    Summary: The man in the yellow hat takes George to the library. George is overwhelmed and excited about all the books that are there. There is a librarian reading out loud to a group of students in another room, she is having story time. George sees a book about dinosaurs and he cannot wait for her to read it. She reads a few books before she gets to the book George wants, and he grows impatient. George grabs the book and runs out of the room.

She reads a few books before she gets to the book George wants, and he grows impatient. George grabs the book and runs out of the room. He sees many books along the way that he would want to read. After gathering the books on a cart, he crashes into some encyclopedias. After the children help sort the books back to their right place, George gets a library card. Evaluation: This book would be a good tool to teach young students about how to behave in the library when they may feel overwhelmed by how many books there are. This book could also show students how to properly behave in the library. Teaching Point: I would read this book in a younger grades classroom (K-1). I would use this book right before our class was getting ready to go to the library for the first time at the beginning of the year. I would want them to realize what was appropriate behavior was in the library and also how to choose a few books at a time.
