Get Curious About Reading

Out-of-This-World Activities


2016 marks the 75th anniversary of H.A. Rey's classic tale Curious George, a fun-filled story about one precocious little monkey with an endless sense of curiosity, and a boundless love for discovery. This book has since taken a special place in the hearts of children and adults all over the world, as have the many that have followed.


To celebrate this monumental 75th anniversary milestone, Houghton Mifflin Harcourt Books for Young Readers, in partnership with the American Booksellers Association, is launching a special summer-reading celebration: Get Curious About Reading!

We’re inviting bookstores, schools, and libraries nationwide to host parties and in-store events, celebrating curiosity through reading!

Are you a school, library, or bookstore interested in joining the fun?
