Corduroy is a great children's book with great illustrations and text. This book is about a little bear named Corduroy that just wants to find his home. A little girl, named Lisa, wants to buy him but her mom won't let her in the beginning, because he doesn't have a button. Then, that night, Corduroy goes on an adventure through the department store to get a button for himself. The following day, Lisa returns to the store to buy Corduroy with the money she brought herself. I would recommend to younger children. For example, Lisa fixes the missing button on Corduroy's overalls so he will be more comfortable and gives him a big hug. From this students can learn why being kind and helping out others is very important; on the other hand, it conveys Corduroy's sadness when the mom was judging him for missing a button, which can teach the students that words can hurt if they are not kind. This book can sow children how to be considerate of others. I can also teach a lesson about sequencing through this story because the plot is very easy to follow and has a clear beginning, middle, and end. There is a clear problem and solution as well, which I could use in my lesson. ( )

Corduroy is a classic children's book. It is about a bear named Corduroy who lived in on a shelf in a toy department store. All he wanted was someone to take him home. One day a little girl comes in the store and sees Corduroy and asks to take him home with her. Her mother tells her no because he is missing a button on his overalls. He is sad and wonders around the store trying to find his missing button. Eventually the little girl, Lisa saves enough money to buy and bring him home. Corduroy is thrilled because he now has a home and a friend, just like he has always wanted.

I think this book is for younger aged readers but has a good message that despite the flaw of his missing button, he can still be loved.

Cute story of a bear trying to search for a button in order to fix his corduroys and be perfect. After not getting a button a little girl comes to the store to buy him. The central idea is that you don't need to change yourself for people and people will love you for who you are. ( )

This book is an entertaining books that tells the adventures of a teddy bear, named Corduroy, who comes to life. Children will automatically make a connection to the protagonist because it's a stuffed animal which they most likely will love. This is a good mystery book for children that can be used to make predictions because Corduroy's purpose is to find his missing button that could be anywhere in the mall where he lives. This is a classic book; it's lighthearted and adorable! It's heartwarming to see Corduroy find his new home with an owner and finally be loved. ( )

Book description
Have you ever dreamed of being locked in a department store at night? The endearing story of Corduroy paints a picture of the adventures that might unfold (for a teddy bear at least) in such a situation. When all the shoppers have gone home for the night, Corduroy climbs down from the shelf to look for his missing button. It's a brave new world! He accidentally gets on an elevator that he thinks must be a mountain and sees the furniture section that he thinks must be a palace. He tries to pull a button off the mattress, but he ends up falling off the bed and knocking over a lamp. The night watchman hears the crash, finds Corduroy, and puts him back on the shelf downstairs. The next morning, he finds that it's his lucky day! A little girl buys him with money she saved in her piggy bank and takes him home to her room. Corduroy decides that this must be home and that Lisa must be his friend. Youngsters will never get tired of this toy-comes-alive tale with a happy ending, so you may also want to seek out Dan Freeman's next creation, A Pocket for Corduroy. (Ages 3 to 8)
