Book Review


On a hot summer day, George the monkey learns about the sun and all the neat things it can do. When a power outage occurs in the city due to a heat wave, George and the man with the yellow hat walk to the nearby museum and discover that it miraculously still has electricity! Professor Wiseman shows George and the man solar panels on the roof that power the building. George later tries using the sun to recharge his toys at home, but to no avail. However, he comes up with a brilliant idea to make a solar cooker to prepare lasagna for a party that night, and everyone at the party loves it.
