About the Author
Hans Augusto Rey was born in Hamburg, Germany in 1898. As a child, he spent much of his free time in that city's famous Hagenbeck Zoo drawing animals. After serving in the army during World War I, he married Margret Rey and they moved to Montmartre for four years. The manuscript for the first Curious George books was one of the few items the Reys carried with them on their bicycles when they escaped from Paris in 1940. Eventually, they made their way to the United States, and Curious George was published in 1941. Curious George has been published in numerous languages. And many, many Curious George books have followed.

This is a cute story about a curious monkey, George, and his curiosity at the little black marks in books, letter. His friend, the man in the yellow hat, tells him that to read a book you have to learn the letters first and begins to teach him the letters. He writes the letter and then draws a picture to go along with the letter, the picture is something that starts with that letter and will help him remember the letter. He also puts the letters together to make words. This book is great when teaching the alphabet and teaching children to read simple words like cat. It is great as a read aloud and also for independent reading time.
I have a two year old who is on her way to reading...and this book really helped! If you can get this book, grab it!!! She wouldn't put this one down and she automatically asked if she could write along with the man in the yellow hat. A purchase worth twice the price:)
