Curious George Discovers Plants

Reviewed by:

This is one in a series of informational narrative picture books designed for young children interested in non-fiction topics.  Children who know the familiar characters of George and his friend will be intrigued with the story line as George learns about growing fresh vegetables in the garden on the restaurant’s roof.  In an attempt to help the Chef, George weeds out all the vegetables and has to find a way to fix his mistake. Through the story, George and the young reader, learn facts about seeds, and what they need to grow.  This book introduces the young reader to a few non-fiction text features.  On many pages, in a side bar, are “Did you know” , “Explore Further”, and “test it out!” boxes, plus photographs that provide additional factual information.  End pages include a glossary of related vocabulary, a simple experiment to show how plants absorb nutrients, and a recipe for vegetable soup.  A useful picture book for Early Education, Kindergarten and Grade 1 exploring foods and nutrition.
