Corduroy is a bear who once lived in the toy department of a big store.
Corduroy is a sweet little stuffed animal ready to move to his forever home.
Day after day he waited with all the other animals and dolls for someone to take him home.
But it seems like he will never leave his little shelf.
One day a little girl spots him and asks her mother.
“Not today, dear.” Her mother sighed. “I’ve spent too much already. Besides, he doesn’t look new. He lost the button to one of his shoulder straps.
And so begins Corduroy’s adventure to find a missing button and go home with a family.
Will he find his button? Or will he be stuck in the store forever?
A beautiful classic.
I have read this one over and over – dozens of times – and yet every time I pick it up, I am in love all over again.
Corduroy never says a single word and yet he is just the sweetest little character I ever did see.
And the night watchmen – he is such a fun fella.
This book it truly magical – and responsible for much of my childhood being extra nice to my stuffed animals just in case!
Read by Viola Davis – and she did a wonderful job with this!!
