By:  H. A. Rey

George has many friends in his neighborhood and they all have very different jobs. As George travels to some of his favorite places, like the fire station, the farm, and the science museum, the six sturdy pull tabs reveal the professions of George’s friends who work there as well as an object particular to that location. The final spread pictures different professions and includes a game that encourages children to discover what kind of interesting jobs can be found in their neighborhood.

H. A. Rey

H. A. Rey (1898–1977) was born in Hamburg, Germany, near the world-famous Hagenbeck Zoo, and developed a lifelong love for animals and drawing. He and his wife, Margret (1906–1996), who studied art at the acclaimed Bauhaus school, had many pets—including two marmoset monkeys that joined them on one of their steamship journeys across the Atlantic. Hans and Margret's world-famous curious monkey first appeared in a manuscript strapped to their bicycles as they fled wartime Paris for the safety of the United States. Committed philanthropists in their own lives, a portion of proceeds from each Curious George book sold flows to the Curious George Foundation, which funds programs for children that encourage inquisitiveness in learning and exploring. Curious George has been successfully adapted into a major motion picture and an Emmy-winning television show on PBS.www.curiousgeorge.com.
