Come along for a ride in Curious George’s Crane—an innovative novelty book that’s shaped like a crane! When George sees a shiny yellow crane reaching all the way up to his window, he hurries to the park to see what’s being built. Curious little ones will love exploring the crane and all its parts with their favorite mischievous monkey. Then it’s up to them to do the heavy lifting! Use the moving lift-arm to haul logs, blocks, and create a construction scene.
Delightful rhymes on each sturdy page, plus moving parts and press-out play pieces, make this a perfect choice for story time or play time. Other fun books in the mini movers series include Curious George’s Dump Truck, Curious George’s Fire Truck, and Curious George’s Train.
