Product Description

From School Library Journal

PreSchool-Grade 1–Curious George goes Christmas tree shopping with the man in the yellow hat, and climbs into a tree that gets delivered to a children's hospital. Although lost, the little monkey makes the best of the situation by decorating the boughs with such items as gauze, X-rays, and crutches and by changing the name tags on all the presents. All ends well as the young patients are entertained and the man with the yellow hat arrives to collect his companion. The text is stilted, and both the plot and illustrations owe a great deal to Margret and H. A. Rey's Curious George Goes to the Hospital (Houghton, 1966). Still, the illustrations capture the look, if not the flavor and charm, of the originals, and so this book will likely be popular with young Curious George fans.–Eva Mitnick, Los Angeles Public Library

Children who love Curious George will like this latest adventure, and the story is shorter and more accessible than some of the longer original entries in the series.

5.0 out of 5 stars A sweet Christmas story March 28 2013
By Prairie Girl TOP 500 REVIEWER
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
Another classic George tale where he helps children at a hospital decorate their Chrismas tree (and gets in trouble, of course!). The copy I received allows you to reverse the book jacket so it looks like wrapping paper, with a spot for a to/from-- a nice idea for a holiday gift! If you love the classic George stories, you will love this one as well.

5.0 out of 5 stars Consistent with the original Curious George series Jan. 9 2007
By Cheryl - Published on
Excellent book. My 6 & 7 year olds are still Curious George fans and both enjoyed this book. Even though the book is not written by H.A. and Margret Rey, it is certainly consistent with their original series in the innocent mischief of this friendly monkey at a hospital at Christmas time.

4.0 out of 5 stars Curious George does it again Dec 7 2006
By Armchair Interviews - Published on
(Illustrations by Mary O'Keefe Young done in the style of H.A. Rey)

Curious George is pure "Curious" in this Christmas gift to children.

As usual his curiosity gets him into situations that make children laugh. First he and his friend in the yellow hat went to a Christmas tree far to select their special tree. Of course George could not stop being curious, jumping from to tree, finally to the tallest tree.

When men come to cut down this tree, George is hiding in the tallest branches and cannot escape so he is taken along with the tree to a children's ward at a hospital.

George livened up these sick children's lives, making them smile and even laugh as they decorated the tree. Of course, he drove the staff a little crazy with his antics.

Mischievous Curious George was brought to lift more than 60 years ago by Margret and H.A. Rey. Think how many generations of children he has entertained. Are you one of them?

Armchair Interviews says: Curious George has done it again!

5.0 out of 5 stars Fun Story for My Nephew Nov. 15 2008
By Arcturus70 - Published on
My four year old nephew is a faithful curious George fan. He loves the books and the television programs. As my nephew is a curious little fellow who sometimes gets into trouble for his own investigations, he finds a kindred spirit in the cheeky little monkey who always tumbles into his adventures.

My nephew loves to hear this story (over and over and over), and he loves to discuss all the items in the book's richly, clever illustrations--especially when George first decorates the tree with items he finds in the children's hospital---X-rays, crutches, cups, cards, medical supplies! One of his favorite story moments is when the nurse is picking up the naughty monkey to remove him from the hospital. Ah, but the children and my nephew beg for him to stay!

Reading to children is important. Reading builds personal connection, observation, critical thinking, and language in ways that today's loud, obnoxious video games and automated toys do not. The Curious George books continue teach and reach generations of children. They are a family favorite here, and they are always welcomed.

A bonus of this book is that my nephew is learning some health / hospital vocabulary in a fun, non-threatening way. This book opens the door to talk to children about children who might be sick or hurt or who might have to have extended stays in the hospital. It allows for a discussion about why some people may need X-Rays, crutches, canes, wheelchairs, etc. With adult guidance, a child can learn empathy and compassion for others through this book. Of course, bringing comfort and cheer to those who need it the most also speaks to the spirit of Christmas.

The book is a lovely edition to my nephew's library of favorite tales. We believe that fans of Curious George Goes to the Hospital would enjoy this Christmas book.

5.0 out of 5 stars Cheaper than After Christmas Sales! Feb. 18 2010
By Brook Biggers - Published on
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
I got a copy of this book after Christmas at Target. I paid a lot more for it than on this site. I found the same book here and shipped to home for less than what I paid for at the after Christmas sales. I wish I could buy all of my Christmas presents this way.
