Corduroy by Don Freeman - ESSENTIAL

Freeman, Don Corduroy Viking Press, 1968. $11.99. BOARD BOOK (Large format).

Tells the classic story of Corduroy, a teddy bear waiting on the department store shelf for a child to buy him. A little girl begs her mother for him, but she turns the girl down because he is missing a button on one overall strap. This is news to Corduroy. That night he sets off to find his missing button, hoping someone will buy him, take him home, and love him. A sweet tale.
