You probably remember the story of the man in the yellow hat, and his curious little sidekick, a monkey aptly named, “Curious George.” I read this book to my kids, and to my young grandkids, and I enjoyed the series more with each reading. Georgie, as we affectionately called him, was a class act, always one step ahead of the game, always CURIOUS.
Are you…curious, that is? Do you, as an adult, have the same level of curiosity that you exhibited as a young child – when everything was new and exciting – when you saw things through the eyes of an innocent child?
Some little-known facts about George: he lived in New York City (yes, the man with the yellow hat had a permit to keep him housed in a NY apartment). George is what is known as a ‘little monkey’ – yet, he has no tail, and that means that he is probably an ape.
The book, written by Hans Augusto Rey and Margret Rey has been popular for decades among children of all ages. What makes George so attractive? It is his sense of curiosity, of course.
The master of childhood entertainment, Walt Disney, once said, “We keep moving forward, opening up new doors, and doing new things, because we’re curious and curiosity keeps leading us down new paths.”
Are you ready to enter a new path? Are you prepared to learn more, do more, and to be more? Perhaps it is time to stay curious…just like George, and never stop questioning.
