Curious George! - New Digital Formats For This Dear Favorite!!

Oak Hills students love Curious George!  

They know that the book series was written by Margaret & H.A. Rey, and they know that the original book was published 73 years ago - way, way, way before they were born. But they really care about George, and they LOVE him!!

Curious George is still reaching out to new generations of children in a variety of new formats! In addition to the traditional books, Curious George has been animated in an educational cartoon by PBS Kids TV.  Both PBSkids ( and Houghton Mifflin Harcourt ( have excellent Curious George websites, with learning activities and games for teachers and parents!  

Today, OHE kindergarteners got a chance to read Curious George in an eBook format! They used the The Curious Reader iPad App which is free with one book, the original Curious George!  The eBook has full audio so students can hear the book read aloud and turn the pages as they are ready. The were completely mesmerized! 

Way to go Curious George!
