**A Parents’ Choice Recommended Award Winner!**
Get your child ready to learn how to read with Curious George!
Based on Margret Rey and H. A. Rey’s children’s book and the hit PBS KIDS TV series, this animated story featuring Curious George is part of iRead With, a new read-aloud program created to foster language development and help preschoolers get ready to read.

When the man with the yellow hat tells George that he is planning a surprise, of course George is curious. Before long George finds a hat, noisemakers, decorations, and games. It must be a birthday! But whose birthday is it? That’s the surprise!

“Tribal Nova has a recipe for success with their shared-reading method. Following the successful launches of their previous iRead With apps (Curious George: Goes Camping and the Firefighters), Curious George and the Birthday Surprise will surely win the hearts of young and young-at-heart readers." - Fun Educational Apps

“This delightful and engaging ebook version of a classic Curious George tale is perfect for young readers. Brought to you by the developers at Tribal Nova, this “iRead With” ebook has many features that make it an excellent option to support literacy learning using mobile technology." - Smart Apps For Kids

iRead With animated stories encourage a participative reading experience engaging both child and parent. This new shared-reading method was created in conjunction with University of McGill University Child Phonology Lab, where extensive research shows that the most effective read-alouds are those where children are actively involved.

Narrative sequences are punctuated by prompts and conversation starters, inviting parent and child to talk about the story and the world around us.

Foundational literacy skills, speech and oral language, vocabulary, phonological awareness, emergent literacy concepts, narrative skills and comprehension strategies.
