September Classic Book -Corduroy


Well, we were the fortunate recipients of a wonderful gift book recently. My dear Aunt and Uncle gave us Corduroy, by Don Freeman. I loved this classic book as a child and thought it would make a lovely feature for September's classic book. Freeman has wrote and illustrated several Corduroy stories some in collaboration with others. They are all wonderful adventures of friendship, curiosity and learning. In the first book of this series readers are first introduced to Corduroy, a little stuffed bear on the toy shelf at a department store. Corduroy goes unnoticed by most shoppers until one day a little girl named Lisa spots him and their adventures begin. Both Corduroy and Lisa find what they have been looking for, a friend. And even better we the readers do too!

  5. Our Corduroy is completely tattered from many, many readers (7 kids times infinite readings...) Books cost $$, but there's a certain amount of fulfillment in seeing a good classic book like this - or a McCloskey, etc - get completely well-read and worn. I'd take that over a computer game any day!! :)

  13. My son just got this in the mail yesterday. Apparently, I had sent out for a freebie (boy, I wish I knew how/when/etc. so I could share). Last night was my first time reading it. Such a sweet story! We have "Corduroy goes to the doctor." I'm encouraged to go to the library to see if they have any Corduroy books.
