The curious little monkey is getting a Christmas tree with his best friend, The Man with the Yellow Hat. George is so excited that he can’t help but jump from tree to tree. When one tree gets chopped and taken out of the lot, George finds himself in a children’s hospital spreading joy among the children.

my review

Here is another cute Christmas story that I finally had the chance to review! I love Curious George. He’s always ready for an adventure and this one was a great one to have. Children would get a kick out of this little monkey.

Though a fun and heart-warming read, I do wish that readers could get to know a little more about George and The Man with the Yellow Hat. They always seem so basic and one-dimensional. I don’t think children would mind necessarily, but I know I always like it when characters are a bit deeper.

What I loved about this book in particular is the fact that George goes to a children’s hospital. It’s a great way to show other children, who are fortunate enough to not be in hospitals, how we can perhaps help others who aren’t at home for the Christmas holiday. It can raise awareness and open up discussion, which is always great.

Overall, this was a sweet and simple read that I’m sure many children will enjoy during the Christmas season!

My Rating4 stars


I would recommend to youngsters who either enjoy Curious George or would like to experience a story featuring the sweet monkey.
