It’s safe to say that everyone (whether as a child, an adult or both) has some experience with the Curious George books. The story of the mischievous monkey was created 76 years ago by Hans and Margret Rey, Jewish Holocaust Survivors with a dramatic story of their own (see Monkey Business). Starring Will Ferrell and Dick Van Dyke, this classic cartoon film tells the story of The Man in the Yellow Hat and his irrepressible friend George, whose curiosity turns out to be more beneficial than anyone could have imagined. Free Family Program: appropriate for families with young children.
