Fifty years ago, Curious George co-creator Margret Rey befriended Myra Fox, head "play lady" at Boston Children's Hospital. Fox asked Rey and her husband to create a special book for kids who were preparing to check into the hospital. The result, Curious George Goes to the Hospital, was an instant success, reassuring generations of apprehensive children (and their parents!) with the heartwarming tale of the mischievous little monkey who swallows a puzzle piece and must go undergo surgery to have it removed. This special edition includes an audio download of the story read by actor John Krasinski, as well as tips from the team at Boston Children's Hospital for how to make your little reader's hospital stay easier. It's just what the doctor ordered! For ages 4 to 7. (KG)
