    What happens when you mix a ramp, a library cart, a few dozen books, and one curious little monkey? Let’s find out.

    Curious George Visits the Library

    At the library, George gets to listen during storytime. He loves stories. But when the librarian takes too long to get to the story about dinosaurs, George grabs the book and sneaks off. Then he finds other books he wants to read—and then others. Soon, George has a whole cart full of books to take home.

    But when the cart rolls out of control, George’s books end up all over the place. Will George be able to sort out the mess? Will the librarian still let him take a few books home? Come along with a curious little monkey as he learns about the library—and more importantly, about sharing.

    Based on Margret and H. A. Rey’s timeless character, Curious George Visits the Library is a rowdy story about keeping quiet and picking out (more than) a few of your favorite books. While the narrative focuses on the fun of reading, it also demonstrates the importance of sharing with others. Published by Houghton Mifflin Harcourt Publishing Company, the book stays true to the original watercolor and charcoal style.
