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.

"THE author of this excellent little guide has devoted almost his whole life to the art of gymnastics and his position in Norway and in this country as a teacher in various educational institutions has fitted him to speak authoritatively upon the subject. Prof. Nissen looks upon the Swedish system of educational gymnastics as the best one and its introduction in the Boston public schools has been attended by the happiest results. The system embraces more than the perfunctory calisthenics which are so common and which are so imperfectly taught that, in many instances, physical deformities are the only results attained.
