Curious George has been around for a long time. And, I feel like the concept of the story is brilliant. Of course, kids will be captivated by a monkey that is just as curious as they are. George acts as a conduit for children to discover how the world works. I remember reading and rereading Curious George books as a child.

A Little About Curious George
The original children’s book Curious Georgewas published in 1941. The story was written by Hans Augusto (H.A.) Rey and Margret Rey. The Reys were refugees of World War II and fled Paris with the manuscript of the beloved book with them mere hours before the city fell. Being Jewish, the Reys were in exceptional danger from any location occupied by Nazi Germany. They fled to Spain, then to Portugal, across the Pacific Ocean to Brazil, and finally settled in a home in New York. Once they were safe, the Reys were finally able to publish their cherished manuscript of the original Curious George.
The story details the meeting of George and his friend, the Man in the Yellow Hat. The man captures George and brings him home to the city. The book was well-received, and the Reys produced more stories to add to the first, all providing more adventures for Curious George.
Since 1941, the Curious George canon has expanded to television, film, and many more children’s books. The adorable monkey that often gets into mischief has continued to be children’s favorite for decades. George always seems to be able to capture the imagination of new generations.
Coloring Curious George
One aspect of the series that I love is the wide variety of adventures, lessons, and locations George finds himself in. You never know what kind of adventure George will go on next. And because of this great variety, our collection of Curious George coloring pages showcases this little monkey in all sorts of places and predicaments. Whether he is being carried off by a bunch of balloons, blowing bubbles, or trying to catch snowflakes on his tongue, your kids will love coloring George as he finds wonder in all of these activities.
Sometimes, George gets himself into a predicament or makes a mess due to his curiosity. Coloring pages that depict George caught in the act of making a mess are sure to be favorites. Perhaps George is painting, and he is covered in paint as well, or a printable picture of him playing in the mud, or a picture of him all tangled up in spaghetti will provide a comic flavor to your coloring experience. Some images may capture the moment right before the mess. Look for pictures of George balancing a leaning tower of ice cream or frosting a cake. These pictures that showcase the moment right before the disaster are hilarious and fun.
George has so many friends and acquaintances wherever he goes that kids will love coloring some recognizable characters from the series. Of course, the never-named but always present Man with the Yellow Hat will be in many coloring pages. But kids will also enjoy coloring George’s city friends like Compass the pigeon, Hundley the dog, the Doorman, Chef Pisghetti, and Professor Wiseman. George can also be seen in pictures with his country friends, like Jumpy the Squirrel, Bill, Bill’s Bunnies, and Allie. These recurring and recognizable characters will be a joy to color for fans of the series.
