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!
