Is It Any Good?

As with other George books, CURIOUS GEORGE'S FIRST DAY OF SCHOOL offers a lot of cute moments, laughs, and adorable pictures of a monkey interacting with young children. This installment is especially nice because it has some great learning opportunities about blending colors, and it can help parents prepare young children for the first day of school.

Did we miss something on diversity?

Research shows a connection between kids' healthy self-esteem and positive portrayals in media. That's why we've added a new "Diverse Representations" section to our reviews that will be rolling out on an ongoing basis. You can help us help kids by suggesting a diversity update.
