Why not in their own backyard? Includes a recipe for no-bake energy balls and instructions for a game that will put gymnastics skills to the test!

AGES: 4-8 AUTHOR: Hans Augusto Rey was born in Hamburg, Germany in 1898. As a child, he spent much of his free time in that city's famous Hagenbeck Zoo drawing animals. After serving in the army during World War I, he married Margret Rey and they moved to Montmartre for four years. The manuscript for the first Curious George books was one of the few items the Reys carried with them on their bicycles when they escaped from Paris in 1940. Eventually, they made their way to the United States, and Curious George was published in 1941. Curious George has been published in numerous languages. And many, many Curious George books have followed.
You set the alarm for 5:00 am, skipped breakfast and braved traffic to get to the gym, only to find your workout Zen crushed by space invaders, super-talkers and gym slobs. You know the type-you'll find them hogging the locker room bench, gabbing loudly on their cell phones, and leaving used tissues and sweaty towels everywhere. Author and New York City attorney Lori Pines loves her daily workout, and thinks we are all entitled to a peaceful, energizing session at the gym-but it would sure help if all gym-goers read this book! Featuring six gym types you don't want to be, this little book will help gym-newbies learn what behavior is OK, and help experienced gym-goers curb their "gym rage" and cope with their less considerate gym mates. Polite gym regulars will have a laugh, and maybe one or two gym "hogs" will find a copy of this book tastefully tucked into their bag!
