I was reading an article about the book Curious George and the Man in the Yellow Hat. I was surprised that it has had a little controversary in it’s past. I just loved how the monkey got into so much trouble from boing overly curious. I can relate…
Curious George is a character and a popular book series starring a curious monkey named George, who is brought from his home in Africa by a man in a yellow hat to a big city. There, he lives with the man, called, simply enough, the man with the yellow hat.
The stories often consist of George getting into some form of trouble by being overly-curious, and the man with the yellow hat getting him out of it. George often learns a lesson from these adventures, which parallel the way young children learn about the world around them. Being children’s literature, these adventures only result in lessons that a young person can comprehend.
