Great Movie for Little Ones

My daughter loved this! She is almost 3. The animation wasn’t too fast and she was able to follow the story line. She enjoyed seeing the different animals. I liked they featured women in different professions.

Is It Any Good?

Our review:
Parents say (3 ):
Kids say (2 ):

Curious George: Cape Ahoy is a lively story made to appeal to preschoolers and it surely does. The toe-tapping music and adorable characters George befriends along the way are easy to love and root for. There's also a surprising amount of science facts sprinkled throughout in a way that a child might remember, such as how long whales can hold their breath, and what compressed air is used for.

Though George's excitement and enthusiasm for new things sometimes gets him into trouble, George is apologetic and his loyal friend Ted is patient and quick to forgive. It's a model preschoolers and parents can relate to as they confront new experiences every day.
