Reviewed by Horn Book Guide Reviews (Horn Book Guide Reviews 2016 Spring)
These template books introduce some scientific information into a narrative wherein George is able to remedy a problem, such as a cold or a finding the pot of gold at the end of a rainbow. Simplistic solutions strain credulity (e.g. a dream sequence where George salvages a Mars mission in Space), and the cartoon drawings lack nuance. A few experiments are interspersed. Glos. [Review covers the following titles: Curious George Discovers Germs, Curious George Discovers Space, Curious George Discovers the Rainbow, and Curious George Discovers the Senses.]
