THEME: ARE YOU CURIOUS, GEORGE?
Circle Time: Bananas!
Today’s special guest was Bananas, a monkey from the library and Curious George’s friend. Passing Bananas around the circle, each child told him his/her name and if s/he likes to eat bananas. Fifteen children said they do like to eat bananas and eight said they do not like to eat bananas.

Around the room, twenty pictures of bananas were hidden. The children had to try to work together to find all twenty…and they were successful!
