Texts and Tunes: Corduroy

It may be hard to believe but the famous little bear Corduroy is turning 40 years old! Don Freeman's tale ($15) of a stuffed teddy feeling ashamed about his lack of buttons is a classic that touches the hearts of adults and children. Adored and wanted by a patient girl, her mother convinces her to leave without the doll. Worried about his lack of buttons, the furry bear spends the night in the department store where he finds himself in a bit of trouble. When the sun rises again, both Corduroy and the little girl are happily reunited — faults and all.

Teaching your tots about patience, imperfection and obedience, this text, no matter the main character's age, will never get old. Celebrate the green overall adorned bear with a special 40th year edition Russ Corduroy that reads the story aloud to your child.

Not only was this a favorite of mine growing up, but a favorite client of mine who worked for a department store got this for my son when he was born, so it will always hold a special place in my heart!
