A pocket for corduroy is about a girl who loses her bear at the laundry mat. The bear also is looking for a pocket for himself.
This story is definitely odd to read as an adult because noone seems to notice that the bear moves itself and knocks over the laundry soap. It is a heartwarming tale full of fantasy and childhood imagination.

Lisa brought Corduroy to the laundry mat. Corduroy wanted a pocket so he went to search for something to make one out of. A man found him and put Corduroy's clothes in the washer to wash them. Lisa came to get Corduroy the next day and made in a pocket when they got home.

This book would be used for children to work in groups to come up with a way to find their bear.

Another story anout Corduroy the bear and how he thinks he needs to change something about himself to make him better. While in the laundromat he hears someone mention a pocket and realizes that he doesn't have one so he sets off to find one. When his owner finds him missing her mother makes her leave without him so Corduroy finds himself lost in the landromat.
This is a sweet story about the love between a gild and her bear no matter what he does or dose not have. ( )

In this follow-up to his classic picture-book Corduroy, which saw a lonely stuffed bear exploring a department store at night, looking for a button, Don Freeman once again sends his adorable ursine hero on an unexpected quest: this time for a pocket. When Lisa, the little girl who took him home in the first book, brings him with her to the laundromat, Corduroy overhears a conversation that convinces him he needs a pocket. Never loathe to go exploring, he sets out to find one, becoming separated from his little girl, and having an overnight adventure in the laundromat as a result. Will he ever be reunited with Lisa? Will he find his pocket...?

There's never much doubt as to that, in this feel-good picture-book, but that's OK - with its charming artwork and a winsome little hero, A Pocket for Corduroy makes for an enjoyable read, regardless. I didn't love it like I did the first, which was one of my favorites as a girl, but it was still a fun little book, with the same kind of fantasy appeal - what do those toys get up to, when we're not there...? - that made Corduroy a success.
