Monday Children’s Book Reviews for July 6

Curious George Plants a Tree by Monica Perez

 “George loves to go to the science museum. So, when he finds out that the museum is planning a “Green Day” dedicated to recycling and planting trees, and George is curious and wants to help out! But little monkeys eager to help can sometimes become little monkeys getting into trouble. When George begins to find and recycle things around town that aren’t quite ready for the recycle bin, he gets into a jam. Thankfully, George isn’t the only one who wants to help—the whole community can’t wait to lend a hand—and help George and the museum plant some trees!” Based on characters and artwork created by Margret and H. A Rey      [JPB PEREZ]

Fast Train, Slow Train, illustrated by Tommy Stubbs

“Edward and James both must go to Ballahoo. Edward is slow and careful while James is fast and proud. James teases Edward about being such a slowcoach, but Edward is determined to be Really Useful even if he is not fast. A Thomas & Friends version of the classic fable, The Tortoise and the Hare. Perfect for Bright and Early readers!”       [JE FAST]
