    Not convinced that Corduroy really should find his lost button in the first place. Sends message that he is not worth buying unless someone fixes his button problem. Overall, disturbing and unamerican. ...

    Corduroy was one of my childhood favorites and I still love it! I am struggling to write an adequate review, and since I am pressed for time I will just say for now that I love everything about it! I feel all the emotions are conveyed so well, from Corduroy's loneliness to the girl's s...

    A memory forgotten is what comes to mind with Corduroy. As a child I read this book and fell in love. "It couldn't be because I had 50 stuffed animals or more." Corduroy was published in 1968 by Viking Press. On October 2, 2008 parents and teachers across the globe read Corduroy in ...

    This is my second favorite book ever. It was the first book I ever read that had a lead character that looked like me. (And no, I don't mean the bear.) The little Black girl, (Penny, I think?) was well groomed and cared for, and SO nice. People out there who've always had characters...

    I dont usually review my son's books but this one in particular really knaws at me for some reason. It has consistently been in the Must Read book list for children since its publication in late 1960s. Although they say the book is about a teddy bear having an adventure and finding ...

    Corduroy has an wholesome, old time feel to it. My toddler daughter and I enjoyed reading this together. I liked seeing things happening through Corduroy's eyes. I was rooting for the little guy to find a home and for someone to look past the fact that he wasn't in perfectly new shape....

    Why five stars? Because I can, and if you don't like it, I'll see to it that you have a nipple ripped off, and that there's no little girl around to sew it back on you! This book was awesome when I was a kid, and it still is. However, the escalator scared me because I always thought it...

    Having several Corduroy books, I was curious to read this one, seeing as how it's the one that shows Corduroy's beginnings. Nothing unique or original about this story, it falls between a level 1 and level 2 reading level for children. Nothing about it really held the attention of my k...

    I accidentally ran into this book on the goodreads homepage and it brought the tears of joy to my eyes! This was probably my favorite picture book when I was a child! Since it's in English, my mother had to read it to me because I didn't learn English until I was 10. It had the most...

    To check out my reviews: http://dancinginth3dark.blogspot.com I remember seeing the cover of this book and I thought I had read it and seen the movie but I mistaken it for The Tangerine Bear which is practically the same story of a toy bear who was abandoned because no one wanted to...

    I love this cute little book about a bear in green corduroy overalls. It is definitely on my list of books to get for my own child (if I have one). I'd also want to get a Corduroy bear, too. ...

    I?ve fallen in love with Corduroy. Just like Lisa, the little girl in Don Freeman?s children?s book, who buys Corduroy from the toy department with her piggy bank savings. Corduroy sadly believes that his missing button is why he?s still on the shelf instead of at home with ...

    I'm not entirely sure why, but when reading this book aloud, I'm always compelled to give Corduroy a (very bad) British accent. I think I mix him up with Paddington in my head. But [SPOILER ALERT], there's no marmalade in this book. Lots of hullabaloo about buttons, though. ...

    Corduory is the tried-and-true story of an outcast toy in search of an owner/happiness. As a sort of allegory for that, he's also missing a button. And at the end he finds them both. It's well written, well illustrated, but the only adventure Corduroy goes on is up an escalator in a...

    Another classic children's story that I have never read before. It was originally published in 1968 & to me it has undertones that reflect that time in our history with such great honesty & simplicity. Even though there is a cute little adventure that Corduroy goes on through t...

    What a nice story about a teddy bear trying to get "adopted" from a department store. But when a little girl admires him in the store and her parent discourages the "adoption" due to the bear's missing button; Corduroy searches the store for it. While I don't fully agree with the m...
