My 3 year old son was sent this book as a Christmas present and six weeks later we are still reading it every night before bed time. Admittedly, I sometimes wish he would choose a shorter story for bed time, but he just loves it. My 18 month old daughter also chooses it every night, and loves pointing at Curious George every time he appears on the page. George is so funny, the story line so interesting, you never know what is going to happen next. And the drawings are fantastic. I never knew a monkey could have so many facial expressions! We would not be without George.
