Houghton Mifflin Harcourt Launches Curious George’s Town App

Houghton Mifflin Harcourt debuts Curious George’s Town for iPad and iPhone. Developed for preschool- to kindergarten-aged children, Curious George’s Town teaches smart saving and spending habits while engaging kids in creating a virtual world complete with roller coasters, dinosaurs, and farm animals, as well as neighborhood staples such as the pet store, bakery, and fire station.

The app features a unique reward chart that parents and caregivers can customize by assigning a specific coin value to a list of real-world tasks—such as cleaning up toys—incentivizing children to complete real-life responsibilities. Kids can also supplement their stockpile of virtual savings by tackling in-app educational games.
