Curious George Saves His Pennies

"Curious George Saves His Pennies" by Monica Perez, 2012

George was attending a birthday party of his 5 year old friend and needed to buy a present at the Toy Store with the man with the yellow hat. As you can imagine, the toy store made George VERY curious! He was really interested in the train table and a new red train!

The man with the yellow hat noticed George's interest and encouraged him to save the money to buy the train himself.

Read this book to find out all of the ways George saved $5.00 for that train and whether or not he decides to spend his money on it.

I love that this story is told by a beloved children's book character and teaches children how to earn the things they want as well as generosity.

At the end of the book is a page explaining that five pennies equal one nickel and other equivalencies.
