A simple but absorbing story for kids. As a child who couldn't have a pet (allergies) and was obsessed with my stuffed toys, I loved the Corduroy books. This story about the child and bear finding each other always made me happy and made me think my favorite toy had a similar story.


sweet heart warming story good story for ages 2-6


Cute book about a department store bear that’s missing a button. It was one of my favorites when I was a kid.

Classic story of a teddy bear who wants a friend

This is a children's classic book about a teddy bear named Corduroy who lives in a department store. A little girl named Lisa spots him and wants to buy him, but her mother points out that he is missing a button. So they go home without him -- and Corduroy is inspired to go off on an adventure around the department store, searching for his missing button. The story ends happily, when Lisa comes back the next day, buys him, brings him home, and sews on a button for him.

Lisa and her mom are black -- I love that this book makes no fuss at all about that.
