Curious George Discovers Series

There's a whole series of these fun books, but this is the one that was at my library:

https://www.amazon.com/Curious-Discovers-Seasons-science-storybook/dp/0544785096/ref=sr_1_fkmr0_3?ie=UTF8&qid=1501531395&sr=8-3-fkmr0&keywords=curious+george+explorer+the+seasons+book

 I enjoyed this book because it included interesting facts about the seasons as well as experiments.  Of course, who doesn't like Curious George?

I love reviewing how the seasons are opposite on different sides of the equator!



 Check out one of the experiments!



Now that it's summer, winter seems so far away, and that's the way I like it!  Luckily, you can try out this activity any time!


The Sheepover

 Sweet Pea, the sheep, is an orphan:

https://www.amazon.com/SheepOver-Sweet-Pea-Friends/dp/0316273562/ref=sr_1_1?s=books&ie=UTF8&qid=1501532256&sr=1-1&keywords=the+sheepover+sweet+pea+%26+friends

She gets sick, and the vet has to come check her over.  At last, Sweet Pea is well enough to have a "sheepover!"



You can read more about Sweet Pea and her friends here.

 I especially enjoyed the personal note from the authors/farmers:



 Both of these books combine fiction and non-fiction in a fun way, and both include follow-up activities!  Also, kids will love these books because of the main characters - especially Sweet Pea, the Sheep - too cute!


Enjoy the last day of July!

  1. My son love Curious George! (Though I have one major issue with it--George IS NOT a monkey!) I love knowing that there are Curious George books that extend the readers thinking and give experiments--thank you for sharing :)
