Description: Curious George, Door Monkey: As lobby dog, it's Hundley's job to keep everything in order. But when George finds some intriguingly shaped packages, the lobby is soon filled with tennis, bowling, and golf balls and a ton of empty boxes! George and Hundley scramble to put the balls back in the right size boxes before the ball-collector tenant comes to retrieve his packages! EDUCATIONAL OBJECTIVE: To demonstrate that objects can be sorted by size and volume. Curious George Goes Up the River: George is supposed to be feeding the ducks while The Man with the Yellow Hat helps Mrs. Renkins look for her lost baby chicks. But somehow, "feeding the ducks" turns into a trip down the river for George and Jumpy. At first, it's fun, but soon George and Jumpy realize they're getting pretty far from home. With the help of some familiar landmarks, they make their way back safely, and the baby chicks find them! EDUCATIONAL OBJECTIVE: To recognize objects from different perspectives. To show how objects can be carried by flowing water. To use objects and a pictorial map of the objects in a landscape to navigate.
