Curious George Goes to the Beach Reviews

    January 13, 2013:I've had this book for decades, and just now decided to read it. I have no recollection of reading it previously. I've always liked Curious George. Nothing like a mischievous monkey. After reading "The Hot Zone" by Richard Preston last year, it was a nice reprieve to have a friendly monkey story instead of a story about a pack of disease-ridden primates ready to tear your face off. No Ebola nightmare in this book! Well, George was at it again. George and the man with the yellow hat (whatever his name is) decided to visit the beach. And, while there, George wanted to play volleyball... to no avail. Everyone got mad at him for grabbing the volleyball and stopping the play of the game. Bad George! Or is it sad George? Of course, he was a little broken. But George went on his way and ended up saving a kid from falling through a hole in a pier. George is now a hero! He went from being an annoyance to being a hero. So, the grandmother of the saved kid decided that George and the man with the yellow hat should join them for lunch on their beach blanket. The best line of the book: "A hero deserves a good meal". And George agreed. And so does the author of this little review. October 17, 2016:Read this book again without realizing that I've already read it. Second time reading it was about the same as the first: an annoying, problem causing little primate turns into a hero. Will we ever learn to never leave George alone?

    Our family loves Curious George and we picked this one up at a library sale for .25 cents. Probably only a level 1 reading book, but still a fun read. Not much detail to this plot by still an exciting read for my 5 yr old when George saves the day. A great addition to any C.G. collection.

    I enjoyed this book because it teaches the readers a lesson that even when we make mistakes, good can still come out of them.

    If i ever have children, you bet i'll read these to them. I really enjoyed them as a child when my siblings would read them to me.

    My kids love Curious George. This is one of thier favorites.It's not really one of mine, although I will admit that its pretty good in comparison to most of the Curious George books not actually written by Margret and H.A. Rey. It also has the advantage of being shorter than the originals, making it perhaps a better before bed book when the kids are dwaddling.The story is formulaic Curious George. George goes somewhere with his friend 'the Man in the Yellow Hat'. George is abandoned with the caution that he should be good. He quickly forgets to be good and gets into some sort of trouble, but in the end he somehow manages to make everything come out right.Into that formula insert - 'beach', 'feeds lunch to sea gulls', and 'helps girl be brave'. The book is probably most notable for the presence of Betty, the sad and fearful girl from 'Curious George Visits the Hospital'. The portrayal of Betty is very faithful to the character, and it's good to see Betty recovering from her illness. That bumps this otherwise forgetable knockoff up to two stars and makes the book a little less painful to read to your toddlers than many of the other licensed books in this product line.

    Curious George Goes to the Beach is a cute classic picture book that has a lot of variety to it. Not only does it have good illustrations but the story in the book goes along with the pictures so well. They work together! In this story, Curious George and his friend with the yellow hat take a trip to the beach and indulge on so many fun activities. They meet a grandmother and her granddaughter who is afraid to get into the water but luckily Curious is there to help. Also, Curious feeds seagulls and accidentally loses his picnic basket when it floats out into the ocean. He ends up "rescuing" it however there is no food left in the basket. The grandmother is nice enough to let Curious have a picnic with them so the story ends up happy. i would give this book a 4 out 5 stars because the illustrations are colorful and bright and the story had a moral to it. I would probably read this to preschoolers because the pictures and story work together. There are many lesson plans that could tie into this book like talking about the ocean or beach activities.

    In this book, Curious George and the man in the yellow hat go to the beach as detailed in the title. The illustrations of the book had very vibrant colors and kind of made me nostalgic as I thought about myself reading Curious George books as a child along with the illustration style being quite ubiquitous when I was a kid. The colors were bright rather than dark to set the tone for a happy day at the beach. While George gets involved in some antics throughout the book, the main arch of the story seems to be Betsy being fearful of the ocean. However, once George must rescue the picnic basket, Betsy realizes there is nothing to fear, and she joins him in the water. The language and repetition used would be beneficial for children reading/listening to this, aiding with comprehension and understanding. Plus, the pictures paired with the text makes it provides a vivid depiction of all the events taking place, allowing children to make inferences about the story as well.

    Curious George is a classic! In this saga, George and the man in the yellow hat goes to the beach. George is not called Curious George for nothing. He explores the role of a lifeguard, feeds seagulls, and even encourages a friend to swim. A fun-loving, entertaining book!The Curious George series has been celebrated for decades. The series has a timeless quality that children enjoy. This story will attract children ages 5-8 years because of its fun story line, cute, simplistic drawings, and let's not forget the mischievous monkey! The clothing is dated but it remains the constant in all Curious George books. The content is appropriate for young children but is also a great read aloud that adults will enjoy reading and reminiscing about.

    Curious George Goes to the Beach is story about a monkey named George who goes to the beach. While having fun feeding the sea gulls, they take over. George has to rescue the picnic basket and at the same time, helps his friend overcome her fear of water. H.A. Rey and Vinpah Interactive depict each part of the storyline very well. Unlike some other Curious George books, the reader could know exactly what was happening without reading any text. The illustrations are lively and full of color. Curious George Goes the to the Beach would be an exciting book to use with younger elementary students.

    This book would be good for young readers. The reading is simple and short in order to keep the readers attention. The illustrations are active as well which allow the readers to visualize what is happening, while reading it. I also really liked how the story had a meaning. This would be good for kids to read and learn what is right and what is wrong. They would see what George did and see that things like that are good. I would use this for a lesson on behavior within my own classroom.

    If we're going to be negative (see CG & the Dinosaur), we feel the need to post about our favorite George book. Nolan says "all of them" but Sean and I agree that Curious George at the Beach is our favorite.We love his curiosity about the life guard's chair and whistle, the sneaky way the seagulls get some (or all) of their lunch, and how his antics lead a friend to overcome her fear of the water. Sweet book and great illustrations.

    George decides to feed the seagulls because they seem hungry. Unfortunately the basket gets caught in a tide and gets swept away. George may be a curious little monkey who always gets into trouble but he is smart enough to figure out how to make everything right again. My daughter and I enjoyed this story and would recommend it.

    Entertaining read! George always brings it home to where young children can relate....they're all curious and at that stage of exploration. George is having a fun day at the beach and thinks it'd be a good idea to share his food with the hungry seagulls. Distracted by the seagulls, he didn't realize the tide came in a took his picnic basked out to sea.

    One of many great books in the Curious George series. These books are perfect for all readers. This book had a great story line that would be fun for children to listen to or even read. The images provide a great visual for the words on every page. This book could be used by a parent to teach their child about what they might hear and see at the beach.

    Classic George. He and the Man in the Yellow Hat go to the beach to have fun. George ends up feeding their lunch to hungry seagulls and the basket floats out to sea. He rescues the basket, but finds it empty. Their friends on the beach offer to share their lunch with George and the Man in the Yellow Hat, so all ends well. Good for preschool storytimes.

    This book was full of adventure. Curious George is a monkey that is always curious about everything around him. I'm this story he goes to the beach and has a picnic but instead he trails off and starts exploring and ends up on the lifeguard tower and gets in trouble. But at the end he shows one of his friends how to swim and not to be afraid I the water.

    My son loves Curious George so this book was able to keep his attention. It helped that he knew the characters already too. In the story George goes to the beach with the man where they plan to have a picnic. While there he sees some friends and gets into his usual shenanigans. Curious George Goes to the Beach was a very cute story and we'll definitely read it again at the pool this summer.

    My 3 year old loves Curious George. He watches all TV shows on all 6 seasons on Netflix. He watches many reruns on TV. Recently I bought him about 15 different books. He learns a lot from it. Great series, books and TV shows. He enjoys this book tonight. I read him 5 curious George books a night. He likes me to read and re-read them for him.

    My preschool class love Curious George books and one of their favorites is Curious George Goes to the Beach. They like that George gets into trouble but always ends up being the hero and feeling good about how he helps other people.

    I think this book teaches children how important it is to share and try new things. Curious George shared his food with the seagulls and Betsy tried swimming for the first time. In the end the day was a success!

    This is a more simplified story than the original Curious George books. There's one major flaw in the plot, and the rewarding meal of all desserts is not currently a supported message, but it's more or less harmless.

    I liked this book. George was curious as usual and he discovered some new things and helped out a friend. This was a fast and easy read. At one point it even had me guessing about what would come next.

    George goes to the beach and has fun playing in the sand and with the seagulls, until one of them takes something valuable to him and he has to find a way to get it back. I think this is an important lesson to your students to be careful when they play, and to protect what is important to them.

    Curious George got to explore different roles in this book. With this book, I can do following up activity where students have an opportunity to pretend play in different roles like George.

    I enjoyed reading this story to my wee son & even though he probably can't understand yet he was definitely listening & looking at the illustrations. We will definitely read this one again.

    This book is good for young readers. It shows, through Curious George, how and why listening is important.

    My kids love the beach and watching/chasing seagulls so it's no wonder this book is one of their favorites!
