  2. Curious George is a favorite of my students and I because he is always getting into trouble. They love when he does silly things and later we go over why they shouldn’t do as George does. It’s fun for them to see how George gets out of trouble. Thanks for running such a fun contest.

  3. My students love Curious George because he gets into mischief and they think it’s funny, but as an education I love Curioud George because he teaches practical little mini lessons throughout each story that that lead to great discussions with my students.

  4. I most recently taught in kindergarten, and my students loved the zany, mischievous adventures of Curious George! And as an educator, I love them because there’s always a lesson within the story that I can integrate into something else we’ve been learning.

  5. We love Curious George in first grade. My students truly understand the meaning of curious and all George’s book provide great prompts as to a time when they were curious. They love that George has so many different adventures and our personal favorite is when he makes a pizza- hilarious!

  6. From the first time we read “He was a good little monkey, but he was very curious,” the children are hooked on the tales (tails?!) of Curious George and his adventures. His innocence combined with healthy mischief and curiosity and all the unintended consequences of his choices makes the stories so memorable that many of our children have entire stories memorized!
    Thanks for making these opportunities available for teachers!

  7. I use Curious George alot in our classroom. Not only are they stories the kids love, they also have lots of wonderful vocabulary words and social learning opportunities. This would be an awesome gift for my classrooms to start the new yer with

  8. I teach Pre-k and my students love Curious George. He is such a cute little monkey and gets into many things. He shows us that it is ok to make mistakes, but that we have to fix them too. He is very curious, just like my students. We enjoy reading about him and thinking of ways that we could help others out in time of need. Many of my students have not been to some of the places that he goes to, and it it fun to learn about new places. There are many lessons to learn from this curious, cute little monkey.

  9. Curious George is the cutest little monkey. We all love him from the very first book we read. This is going to be my second year teaching and first year in 1st grade! First grade students LOVE these books! They are books that make them laugh! It would be a lot of fun to celebrate curious day this year with my 1st grader and some Curious George! 🙂

  10. The students that I have worked with love Curious George for so many reasons. They relate to his sense of adventure and love the silly situations he gets himself into. I think Curious George is a good role model for students because he teaches them to not be afraid to try something new. This mischevious monkey is adored by all students because of the shenanigans he gets himself into and how he uses his brain to solve a problem. Curiosity is what helps students become great learners and Curious George definitely teaches them that!

  11. My students always love reading about Curious George because he gets into a lot of mischief. They like to share how they have had similar situations and how they have made it better or what George should do or should not do next time. They love to watch a video of him for a treat as well. Thank you for the curiosity kit contest! My students will not start school in time for curiosity day but I am always ready to promote a love of reading! We need more read along cd’s for the listening center.

  12. I am a BRAND NEW teacher and will be teaching kindergarten this year. I remember reading Curious George when I was young and I loved it! The books are funny and exude the child-like innocence children should have. I think they would be great to start off my book collection.

  13. I am a preschool – pre-k teacher at a private catholic school. I worked as director of the children’s dept. at our public library for 9 1/2 years. We had every Curious George book published and the children loved them. We even did programs centered around Curious George. Well, when I went back to teaching preschool I brought the love of Curious George with me and several of his books followed me. I have two stuffed Curious Georges in the preschool reading area and several books. The children love to hold him and read to him. The children like Curious George because he is always in trouble. They can relate to him in many ways. I attended a PBS Television workshop that was centered around Curious George and I brought many new ideas back to the preschool. We even do a camping unit focused on Curious George’s camping book. At Christmas time we watch Curious George’s Very Merry Christmas and the children learn valuable morals from it. It is just so much fun to learn with Curious George.

    The lessons George learns stretch across the generations!

  33. My Kindergarteners absolutely love Curious George. I have several books for the themes that we have and they get so excited to learn things that George is learning about too! They get a better idea that learning comes from everywhere, and that we are always learning! They love it! Thank you!!

  48. We enjoy Curoius George everyday after lunch before our rest time. Then the kids love exploring what George is doing. When the kids come on and talk about the different items and what they are creating. My children really build off on those ideas. Yesterday we did rivers and dams in the sand box. All of the children were involve from the youngest to the oldest children. They have all learn that if they all work together they can do anything.

  49. We used curious george to introduce new units of study they loved having to learn along with him and to teach him new things…

The children always seem to want to read these two stories over and over again. Of course we read all the adventures he takes and what we would do if we were with George.

  54. My students think Curious George Rocks!!( so do my kids in my family) They can relate to him even though he is a cartoon monkey because he tries to figure things out and eventually through trial and error and common sense or clues around him figures it out. If I point out the comparison they can see how they are all alike. THanks

  55. My own children just finished watching curious george and we were just on our way outside! We love George! He is always using play to explore and learn about his world – just like kiddos! He introduces children to so many different topics and ideas to think about!

  56. My students love Curious George. They ask me to read them the books at the beginning of the year and then some are able to read them on their own at the end of the year.

  57. Curious George is Awesome. The kids love learning from him, because some of the things that George does are things that the kids ask or do as well. They love it when we read Curious George books.


  59. Many kids feel the same way as Curious George. They want to be big helpers and sometimes get in trouble and always have the best intensions. I like that Curious George always finds the best at the end and this shows the kids to keep on trying and enjoy who they are.

  60. I use this magazine all the time in my classroom to get great ideas and for all my planning pages, and letters that I write to my parents…I’m so glad that Mailbox is on FB now so I can see anything new that’s coming up….

  61. My husband was born when Curious George books were first becoming popular. He was named George and his grandmother bought all the books and nicknamed him “Curious George”.

  66. My son, who is now 34, loved Curious George as a little boy. When he moved away to NYC, I gave him his Curious George stuffed animal and his favorite book that I had saved. He had a big smile on his face when he opened his present. My first grade kids love Curious George, too. They can relate to all of his actions and laugh at his silliness. We work on the ch chunk when we read Curious George Goes to the Chocolate Factory. And of course we must eat some chocolate!

  67. I am currently teaching wheelchair bound, nonverbal, profoundly disabled brothers, 9 & 13 years of age. The 13 yr old adores Curious George and seems to be one of the only things that really stimulates him. I know that when I read Curious George books to him he becomes the most focused that I ever see him.

  68. My first grade class just adores Curious George! They can’t wait to hear what kinds of funny things he’s going to do. I teach in a very low socioeconomic area and many of my students have to grow up too fast. They don’t have opportunities at home to read classics or to have someone read to them. At school, I give them those opportunities to be a kid and enjoy reading with characters like Curious George! They would just die to have me bring in something like this to our classroom!

  69. Students at the elementary level can relate to Curious George in so many ways. I sometimes hear students comment on how much Curious George is just like a younger brother or sister. What a great way to start teaching students about making connections.

  70. Curious George is a staple in my classroom. Every year my class and I dress as monkeys and use paint like Curious George would. Anything goes in my classroom. The rule is: Messes are fun and cleaning up after can be even more exciting. Just like Curious George.:)

We told the kids that he had swallowed a puzzle piece and needed to get an x-ray. It was so cool that the x-ray tech. put a puzzle piece underneath of him without the kids seeing so that it would show up on the x-ray. The kids were amazed and it lead into a great discussion about not putting things in our mouth and how the people in the hospital can help you.

  132. My 4th grade students and I love to read about Curious George to analyze his decision making choices. The students love to explain the consequences of his choices and what the other consequences may have been with other choices.

  133. We have two large Curious George’s that in our classroom for all to hold and talk to. Aren’t all kids curious about all the adventures that life has to offer like the man in the yellow hat? In the past we have written our own adventure story modeling Curious George and they turned out pretty cute.

  134. My students in Puerto Rico enjoy reading stories that are fun and easy to understand by ESL students! They like to dramatize and watch me use my Curious George puppet! They’ll surely love adding some more fun to our class!

  135. In kindergarten, the students love the trouble George gets into. The man in the yellow hat always stays his friend and cares for him no matter what-a good lesson for little ones.

  136. Dear Karen,
    Thank you for chosing me as a winner! I recieved the Curious George Kit in the mail and I love it. The children will enjoy celebrating with the kit. I know the big book will be read over and over many times in our classroom.
    Thanks again,
    SHCS Preschool
