    During George’s first visit to school, things start out great—but then an accident threatens to ruin the whole day.

    Curious George's First Day of School

    George is so excited he can barely eat his breakfast. Today is his first day of school—and he’s been invited to be a special helper in Mr. Apple’s class. When George arrives, the other kids are excited to see him. George jumps right into helping: He holds the book during story time, he lets the kids count on his toes and fingers, and he makes sure everyone has a ball at recess.

    When it comes time for painting, George begins mixing paints to make new colors. But when he gets carried away, he makes a mess. And when he tries to clean it up, he makes an even bigger mess. What will George do now? Maybe he isn’t such a good helper—or maybe he just needs a little help from his friends.

    Based on Margret and H. A. Rey’s timeless character, Curious George's First Day of School shows how teamwork and inclusion can solve problems that we can’t solve on our own. It also demonstrates how even the best intentions can end up making a big mess. This animated book stays true to the original watercolor and charcoal style.
