At the beginning of my book,
Curious George was on his vacation with the man with the yellow
hat. They decided to stop by South Dakota to see Mt.
Rushmore. They saw men working on Mt. Rushmore while they were
looking through the binoculars.
The man in the yellow hat and
Curious George were going to watch a hot air balloon race. When they
arrived to the field with the balloons, Curious George was very
excited. Since he was so curious, he decided to climb a rope
attached to one of the balloons.
Once Curious George was in
the balloon, he realized the balloon was no longer attached to the
ground. He was very scared. He was watching the other
balloons in the race. The wind changed and Curious George saw Mt.
Rushmore. A man working on Mt. Rushmore grabbed hold of the rope
from the balloon and they landed safely in a tree.

George, how would you feel if you were up
in the hot air balloon alone?
2. What kind of
things would you want to look while you
were up in the hot air balloon?
