Curious Georgge Goes to Wordsworth

Roughly translated, that means, All kids go to heaven. With its bright red-and-yellow storefront, this kiddie version of Wordsworth marks the central corner of Harvard Square as well as the center of the children’s book world. Walk into this fun library, which is filled with games and toys, and you’ll be lost in circuses, jungles, an hot-air balloons. Curious George Goes to Wordsworth—the answer to rainy summer Sundays.
