grandma's bookshelf - Curious George Says Thank You - I'm Giving One Away!

I don't know about you, but one of my grandson's favorite characters is Curious George. Both Josiah and Caleb love to watch the "adventures" of this curious little monkey! So, when I had the opportunity to review some Curious George books, well I knew my grandsons would be so happy to "assist"! When the package arrived, the boys were here, so they opened them and found the Curious George books resulting in two happy boys at my house for sure! I'm very happy to share one of them with you today . . . 

Curious George Says Thank You 
By - Margret & H.A. Rey
Authors - Emily Meyer & Julie Bartynski
Illustrated by - Anna Grossnickle Hines
Publisher - Houghton Mifflin Harcourt
Ages - 4+

Favorite Features -
  • Story about the much loved "friend" of children - Curious George
  • Story about being thankful and taking the time to say, "thank you!"
  • Colorful illustrations
  • How to say, "thank you!" in 10 languages on the back cover
Generations of children have enjoyed Curious George stories for good reason - they are fun as a little monkey explores his world and learns how to treat others. As a grandma I like these stories because it is easy for children to make the connections between the lessons George learns and their own lives - as George learns to be thankful and to show it to those around him, children can understand how they can be thankful and show it to those around them as well! 

As you enjoy this story with your grandchildren ask them who they would like to make thank you notes for and spend some time crafting notes which they can then go with you to hand out! Talk with them about being thankful and taking time to notice when people are kind to them so they can say, "thank you", too!

I'm very happy to say not only did Houghton Mifflin Harcourt send one book for me to review, but they are making another available for me to give away (USA only)! If you'd like to be in the drawing for Curious George Says Thank You,  which will be on January 28, 2013,  please comment below to let me know if you have followed on Google+, Google Friend Connect, followed by liking on facebook with the tab in the "Find us on Facebook" box ON THE BLOG (not just liking the post) and/or have followed grandma's cookie jar by email.
