Synopsis: Curious George and his companion, the Man in the Yellow Hat visit a pet shop to see the animals and find a mother dog with a large litter of puppies. George goes from wanting to pet the puppies to the usual chaos and puppies are everywhere.

Curious George’s childlike antics have been a part of kid’s lives since first published in 1941. Today, the many subjects involving George’s monkey business are varied and each holds the same charming innocence. Curious George and the Puppies is a very good story for emerging readers. The humor keeps it light and all is well in the end. This might be a keeper for your child to share with their children.

The Trainer Reads: Curious George and the Puppies is a great way to demonstrate to children the need for responsible actions around animals. This might be a good time to let children know never to open a gate or door to pet a dog. More than one child has caused a much greater disaster than the one Curious George created. This is a great children's dog book for sharing at bedtime and laughing over. Few baby boomers today have not shared a Curious George story with Mom at bedtime.
