From the Publisher:
A great way for babies to learn their colors, this accordion-style board book features black and white patterns and simple shapes for newborns on one side and a rainbow of colors and scenes, such as green leaves and purple balloons for older infants and toddlers on the reverse. It includes a magnetic closure and is sturdy enough to stand on its own. Set it up on the floor to encourage a newborn to turn her head or an older baby to lift his head during tummy time. The book also includes tips on different ways the book can be used for play time.
As with all the Curious Baby Curious George books, this title incorporates: a baby-friendly format perfect for gift-giving, a sophisticated color and pattern-driven design, high quality materials, simple visual content, and, of course, everyone's favorite monkey--Curious George!
Hans Augusto Reyersbach, later shortened to Rey, fought with the German army during World War I, after which he moved to Brazil. There he met and married Margaret Waldstein, an author and artist. The couple moved to Paris in 1936, but the Nazi invasion forced them to flee for the United States. Rey's first book, CECILY G. AND THE NINE MONKEYS, marked the first, very casual, appearance of his most famous character--Curious George. That character took the spotlight in the book CURIOUS GEORGE, which was published in 1941. In addition to his four books about Curious George, Rey also created such memorable characters as the extraordinarily long dachshund in PRETZEL and the resourceful kangaroo in KATY NO POCKETS. Since H. A. Rey died, his wife Margaret Rey and an illustrator working in H. A. Rey's style have created several more books featuring Curious George.
