Giveaway & Review: Curious George "A Very Monkey Christmas" (DVD) [CLOSED]

Every member of our family is a Curious George fan. I loved the books when I was a child and now my own children do as well. We were thrilled when the PBS series, which is now in its 4th season, came to television. Curious George: A Very Monkey Christmas is the first recent holiday movie starring our favorite monkey that I am aware of.

One thing that makes this DVD different from the television series is the viewers are treated to music. If you are not yet in the mood for Christmas, you will be after watching this movie about how George and the Man With The Yellow Hat work so hard to find the perfect gift for each other.

Please take a minute to view the musical trailer below:

This DVD is now available in stores and should definitely be on your list of considerations for holiday gifts for your Curious George fan. My family really enjoyed seeing what new antics George had come up with, such as knocking down all the Christmas trees while attempting to select the perfect one to take home. This movie also shows your child how to see the world in shapes. Keep that in mind as you attempt to figure out the puzzling wishlist George has given the Man With The Yellow Hat.
