“Curious George Goes to the Beach” is written by Margaret Rey and illustrated by H. A. Rey. As the story goes, on one hot summer day George and the man with the yellow hat go to the beach. Little ones will love learning what a fun adventurous day George enjoys.
The opening reading will take place on Thursday, July 2nd at 3:30pm during the Story time at the Pool. Volunteer Suzanne Kelly will read the story of “Curious George Goes to the Beach”, as the children walk with her, celebrating this fun event with an ice cream party at the end.
