Where is Curious George? Look-and-Find Book: Around the Town by Cynthia Platt-ADVISABLE

Platt, Cynthia  Where is Curious George? A Look-and-Find Book: Around the Town Illustrations in the style of H.A Rey by Greg Paprocki  Houghton Mifflin Harcourt, 2015.  $9.99  PICTURE BOOK  Content: G.  

George the monkey is exploring all the different places in town: school, the playground, the fire house and other such places.  Each page spread has a new place that he visits and he is hiding among the scene.  There are also 5-6 objects that the reader is asked to locate on the page.  There are 8-10 rhyming lines that describe the place George is at and then at the end it asks you to find the objects and George.  

My boys enjoyed this book, they love the search and find books and they love George the monkey.    This will appeal to readers who like the Curious George books and although the objects are not well hidden the text combined with the searching makes for an engaging read with little listeners.
