Curious George Discovers Recycling (science storybook) (Paperback)
Curious George wants to help clean up the planet, and recycling seems like a good place to start—but where does he begin? Follow along with George as he learns about what recycling is, how it works, and what else he can do to reduce his monkey paw print. Readers will learn the difference between recycling and trash, what happens to the things we throw away, and other ways to help keep our planet clean. Based on Curious George, the Emmy Award-winning PBS TV show, this story also includes fun facts, real photos, experiments, activities, and more. Learning about science has never been so much fun!
About the Author
H. A. Rey (1898–1977) was born in Hamburg, Germany, near the world-famous Hagenbeck Zoo, and developed a lifelong love for animals and drawing. He and his wife, Margret (1906–1996), who studied art at the acclaimed Bauhaus school, had many pets—including two marmoset monkeys that joined them on one of their steamship journeys across the Atlantic. Hans and Margret’s world-famous curious monkey first appeared in a manuscript strapped to their bicycles as they fled wartime Paris for the safety of the United States. Committed philanthropists in their own lives, a portion of proceeds from each Curious George book sold flows to the Curious George Foundation, which funds programs for children that encourage inquisitiveness in learning and exploring. Curious George has been successfully adapted into a major motion picture and an Emmy-winning television show on PBS.www.curiousgeorge.com.
