Curious George Discovers the Stars by Bethany V. Freitas - OPTIONAL

Freitas, Bethany V.  Curious George Discovers the Stars  Houghton Mifflin Harcourt, 2016.  $6.99  PICTURE BOOK  Content: G.   

George was in the country and was amazed by all the stars.  He tried to count them but fell asleep.  When he gets back to the city he realizes that he can’t see as many stars because of the city lights.  When the city has a brownout, he is happy because then he thinks he can count all the stars.  

In this Curious George Discovers series all of the books have side bars that have facts on the topic George is interested in.  The side bars are interesting, succinct and have pictures, but it jostles the story to stop and read all of them.  George is cute and the pictures are bright and attractive.  

 EL (K-3) – OPTIONAL.   Reviewer, C. Peterson.
