History Lesson?

Curious George is a story loved by many.  Who doesn't have a memory or two... or more of stories read from their childhood and are, like me, passing them on to their children?

Our current story, Curious George Visits the Zoo, has sent me on a trek to find out more since the book we are reading has a very different book cover graphic than any book that I can find.

I'm sure this is normal.  Yes?  No?  I'm not much of an expert in the literature realm and literature or otherwise, when I don't understand something or things don't add up -- even something as simple as cover graphics not matching -- I dive in head first...  well, you know...  to figure out.

Well, I didn't figure it out, but I did find a very interesting bit of history that I think is a bit more important.

You can read more about it here.  It's an amazing story and you can bet that I'll be sharing more of Curious George with my children even as they grow older.  Not only to share with them, but to learn more myself.

Have you recently shared some of your childhood favorites with your children, only to learn more than you understood as a child?  I'd love to hear your story.
