The New Curious George's Travel Log
August 2008 Miss Miller found a new Curious George at the Little Book House at Stuyvesant Plaza, Guilderland, NY. Curious George hopped in the car, ready to go to Maine! Curious George spent two weeks in York Beach, Maine at the ocean with Miss Miller's family. Tommee Tiger and Skye the American Eagle, the travel buddies from last year, came along for the ride!
He enjoyed playing in the sand with his new friends Betsy
Bear and E Pluribus Unum the Eagle. They all helped Miss
Miller and her father make a sand castle. A little girl
named Madison, from Florida, came over to join in the fun! She brought her Little Mermaid. (Another little girl came to see what we'd created!)
Here are his travel photographs. If you "click" on them, they become larger!
Curious George sat on the window sill next to Miss Miller's bookcase with Betsy Bear and E Pluribus Unum while second grade got settled into their new classroom.
Curious George met the children today! He also met 11 Monarch caterpillars that arrived after lunch. The largest is about the size of Miss Miller's thumb nail or about 1 1/2 centimeters in length. George will be in Michigan when the caterpillars become butterflies.
The caterpillars came in a jar with holes on top. They had milkweed leaves to eat and a coffee filter to crawl on.
Waiting in the chair until the 2nd grade returns on Monday!
