Curious George Learns To Count 1 To 100 Big Book (13)
Curious George is a good little monkey, and always very curious. Now George is curious about numbers. Counting from 1 to 10 is easy, but can he count all the way to 100? George has picked the perfect day to try. It’s his town’s 100th birthday today and everyone is coming out to celebrate!
With the help of his friend, the man with the yellow hat, George learns to count from 1 to 100, making his usual monkey mischief along the way. Young minds (and little fingers) will find all kinds of wonderful things to count as they turn each colorful page. From School Library Journal
PreSchool-Grade 1–Curious George is back in this counting adventure that is chock-full of activities such as grouping, mapping, and sorting questions, prompted by a little blue bird that travels with him throughout the book. Readers will enjoy exploring with the monkey as he and the man with the yellow hat go from home to school to the town's Centennial Celebration. Hines's color illustrations in the style of H. A. Rey contain many things for young learners to count, including a parade of ants, leaves blowing in the air, and rungs on a ladder, so this title may be best for sharing one-on-one. Ideas for using the story to enhance learning as well as ways to explore numbers are included at the end of the book.–Tracy Bell, Eastway Elementary School, Durham, NC

PreS-Gr. 2. On the morning of their town's Centennial Celebration, the man with the yellow hat challenges Curious George to count to 100. In his bedroom and the kitchen, at the school they visit, and at the big celebration, George finds plenty of things to count. In fact, he finds one more thing each time (48 paperclips in a chain, 49 books on the shelf, 50 states on the classroom map) until he finally reaches his goal. Given the continuing popularity of Curious George and the institution of math-reinforcing 100th-day celebrations in many classrooms, this book sounds like a good idea, and it looks even better. The illustrations capture the spirit of the original character and even make counting entertaining. A closing note reassures adults that it isn't necessary for children to count every object along the way and suggests simple games that will reinforce the concept. Though longer than most counting books, this refreshingly childlike picture book will suit those who are working their way up to 100. Carolyn Phelan
