Curious George Rides a Bike

Written by: H. A. Rey

First line: This is George.

Why you should read this book: Who doesn't love the story of the curious monkey who is given way too much freedom for a human being, let along a mute creature born in the jungle? I loved this book as a child because it offers step by step instructions for turning a newspaper into a boat. Kids also enjoy the fancy bike-riding, the animals, and, of course, George's unerring ability to get into trouble.

Why you shouldn't read this book: You believe monkeys should not be raised in homes or allowed to play outside unsupervised, and you definitely don't think they're qualified to deliver newspapers or follow directions.
