For Sentimental Sunday, I chose to review Corduroy by Don Freeman because it was one of my favorite books as a child. I loved the adventure and the idea of being in the store at night with no one else around. Corduroy is a great story about a lonely teddy bear looking for his forever home. Children will love Corduroy’s adventures in the store after the people leave for the night. The innocent teddy bear simply wants to find his missing button, but ends up causing quite a fuss!
I think Corduroy is a fantastic children’s book about finding friendship and loving someone for who they are, even if they’re missing a button! Corduroy is also part of a series. Fans of Corduroy should also check out A Pocket for Corduroy, Corduroy Lost and Found, and the many other books about Corduroy!
