I bought this book to get my little one excited about a fishing trip we were going to take, definitely not the message I want to send. In general the idea of trying anything once and giving up is not the message I want my little one growing up reading over and over. The book would have been better if someone came to show him how to do it, or if someone helped him catch a fish successfully!
Pros: cute illustrations, and I do love Curious George things in general.
I bought this book because my husband loves to fish and wants to get our toddler boy interested in fishing. So I thought books around fishing would help peak his interest. However, in the book, Curious George falls into the water, feeds the fish cake, and finds out that flying a kite is way more fun. In fact he never even catches a fish. So if you are looking for a book to get your toddler interested in fishing, this is probably not the best fit. This book does not encourage fishing or even show that fishing is fun.
Now, with that said, my toddler still enjoys looking at this book and yells "OH NO!" when George falls in. So it may be a great book in general. However, if your goal is to find a book to get your toddler interested in fishing, this is NOT it!
So far George gone fishing and the George and the bunny board books are fan favorites. We have some paperback ones too but they are long and no color.
My 3.5 year old loves this book and has memorized the story after having had it for only a few weeks and now reads it to us... He doesn't yet do this with any other book. He is a George fan so that helps.
We the parents recognize the stories were written in a different era and add in our own safety tips and even ask our little guy to suggest safety ideas like wearing a life jacket on the dock and never go out without an adult like mommy or daddy. We have done our own ad-lib in other George books and seems to work fine.
For few bucks we paid, we have beyond gotten our money's worth.
