About the book

Curious George is exploring some of his favorite places—a town, a playground, a circus, a farm, and a campground—and he needs your help to reach his destination! With your assistance, George can navigate the magnetic mazes, and once you've helped George, you can show his friends how to get to the places they're looking for, too. With five mazes and six magnetic pieces, this book has many uses and many ways to move around the pages. And with a handy, reclosable case for the magnetic pieces, George and his friends are always right there when you need them—perfect for at home and on the go!

My Thoughts

This book contains six magnets and five mazes that will keep you kid busy for a little while.

Each maze represent a different part of a place that George and his friends could go – city, park, circus, farm, and the campground.   In each of the maze, you will have a small txt as well as things to do.   For example, in the camping trip maze, the dog needs to find the yellow tent.   

For fun, I decided to test how the magnets would stick on the pages.   I took on of the magnet and put it on the page.  Then I hold the book upwards and shook it.   The magnet stayed in place.    It didn’t move whatsoever.   Pretty amazing.   This little test was necessary for me to determine how the book could entertain a child while you are driving.   I have come to the conclusion that it would be a perfect book to keep a child busy for a while whether you drive to an appointment or if you are doing a long distance trip.

I am planning to give this book to my nephew who is a special need child.   I asked my sister-in-law if he liked this kind of magnetic book as well as Curious George and she answered positively.   I am pleased that he will enjoy this book and that it could help him to develop his searching skills as well.

Needless to say that if this book is great for my nephew it would also be great for your kids!   I think it is well made and would provide fun time for them.
