Perez, Monica Curious George Discovers Plants Houghton Mifflin Harcourt, 2016. $6.99 PICTURE BOOK Content: G.
George and the man in the yellow hat go to their favorite restaurant and when they order vegetable soup, they learn that the chef has run out of veggies. Chef takes them up on his rooftop and shows George and the man in the yellow hat where he grows his food. He shows George his weeds and when George comes back later to help pull the weeds, he pulls out the Chef’s veggies. George tries to correct his mistake and learns how plants grow.
The story line of this book was fun and George is adorable as always. There are sidebars throughout that give facts about plants, which can be distracting when trying to read the story, but are interesting. There is a word missing in one of the sentences, which makes it confusing for new readers, but other than that it is a cute book.
