    • Another Curious George book my 5 yr old loved reading. When I ask him which C.G. book he likes best he gets mad at me and tells me he likes them all 100%. So there you have it. It's around a level 1 reading level. My 5 yr old has to read everyday, and these he doesn't mind reading on his own because he likes them so much. A great addition to any C.G. collection.


    • George is at it again! Always the curious monkey, George creates a stir when he ventures into a dump truck and spills dirt into a duck pond. Luckily, Mama duck and her little ducklings love their new island. The story and illustrations are both adorable.


    • Curious George as always, cannot help but be curious and stir things up a little. This time, our adventure involves George, a dump truck(of course), some ducks and a pond. What could possibly go wrong but end up right?? =)




    • Curious George hears quacking below his window. Its a Mama duck with her 5 ducklings. George follows them to the park where George sees the pond and then something that he has never seen before a Dump Truck. The Dump Truck door is wide open, because the Gardeners went to lunch, but they forgot to close the door. George goes inside the Dump Truck, but hes to small to see out the window. He climbs on a lever, but its the dump lever. The dirt starts to fall George gets on the dirt and slides down w [...]


    • Synopsis: "Curious about the big truck next door, George takes a closer look. He wants to see how it works. Before long he finds that one little lever can mean great big trouble! But George quickly puts his monkey ingenuity to work and finds a surprising solution to his messy mishap."My Review: Munchkin really enjoyed this one, it not only had George but also a dump truck. I do find it a little disconcerting that every mistake George makes just works out fine, there are no repercussions for not [...]


    • Dump trucks are big and fun, but can also be dangerous. You should never drive a dump truck alone or without the driver. I might also add that although monkeys have been in space, a dump truck is no place for them. curiosity can be a very dangerous thing, and get you into heaps of trouble. For all you young'ens out there, you would do well to learn from curious george how to avoid the hazards of heavy construction equipment. And remeber this there is not always a man in a large brimmed yellow ha [...]


    • This was another fun-favorite George book. He follows ducks to the park. And in his curious way he accidentally gets into a dump truck and hits the level to lower the dirt. Although he's having fun with the dirt dumping; when the workers come back from lunch they see he's made a mess.BUT before they can really get onto him Momma duck and her babies have made the pile of dirt their home as an island in the lake! A cute book! And as always illustrations are wonderful!


    • Curious George plus Dump Truck plus little ducks. How is that not a winner? I loved how George thinks it would be so cool to sit in a dump truck (like most children I know), but when he actually sits down, he realizes that he can't reach the pedals or even see out of the windshield! I wouldn't have called this series out on quashing a daydream with a reality check, but the fact that it did it in a humorous way made it all the more impressive.


    • Yup, that George is at it again. This time he is so curious about a dump truck at the park that he climbs inside, and upends its load into a pond. Luckily for George the ducks like the new dirt pile, and make it their island, so everyone is happy. There's this great line that says, "What could be better than a truck full of dirt?" Lots of things George, lots of things.


    • My 3 year old loves Curious George. He watches all TV shows on all 6 seasons on Netflix. He watches many reruns on TV. Recently I bought him about 15 different books. He learns a lot from it. Great series, books and TV shows. He enjoys this book tonight. I read him 5 curious George books a night. He likes me to read and re-read them for him.


    • My son adores this book in which George follows his curiosity to a dump truck. Every bookstore in Israel seems to have English language copies of “Curious George and the Dump Truck,” which is also featured in the Hebrew version of the anthology, “A Treasury of Curious George” (אוצר הסיפורים של ג'ורג' הסקרן).


    • George was playing with his toys and then he heard a quack. Not only one quack, another, and another, and another, and another. And he kept hearing quacks. At first he had a little bit of trouble. And then he was waddling after mother duck, too. That's it. I liked this book because there is a truck. -by Alexander


    • One of the better of the newer Curious Georges. Of course George is too curious, and something bad happens, but then it turns out to be not all that bad. Hmm, maybe these books should also be used for looking on the bright side of things.


    • George is a monkey. He comes across a dump truck and being the naturally curious monkey he is ends up causing a huge mess. Fortunately George is also the luckiest monkey ever because he always manages to get out of trouble. My daughter enjoyed this story as did I. Would recommend.


    • George once again causes a great deal of mischief by dumping out a truck full of dirt in the pond at the park. But as usual, his naughtiness ends up make things better.Typical H.A. Rey illustrations.


    • I like this book because it's like all the other ones and I like the thing about it best is because he goes inside the water with the dirt from his dump truck and I think it's cool because he stepped on something and the dirt started going down.





    • This is one of the better Curious George books for the very young. Some of them tend to be too long to keep everyone's attention.




    • All curious George books according to Truman's view are 5 stars. He loves and is obsessed about curious george
