From time to time I like to highlight some of our family’s favorite books. Last night for story time I read the girls Corduroy by Don Freeman. This is an oldie but a goodie. It was read to me when I was little, and I had completely forgotten about it until I was pregnant. We were visiting Russell’s family in Texas and they had a bunch of the boys old books on a shelf in the room where we were staying. During my pregnancy Russell had read to the babies every night and so he picked up a book off the shelf to read to them. Corduroy. As he started reading I was like “Hey, I remember this!” Months and months later when his parents were visiting us here in Vegas they stopped by the bookstore and picked up a few new books for the girls. Corduroy was one of them.

It is a very cute story about a little stuffed bear named Corduroy, who is waiting for someone to come to the department store and take him home. But when he discovers he is less then desirable due to a missing button he goes on a search to find it after the store closes. In the end he is chosen by a little girl who loves him just the way he is, and brings him home.

  1. Such a classic. I love that book!

  2. Have you read A Chair for my Mother by Vera B. Williams to your girls yet? With Mother’s Day this weekend, it is a great story to read. So is “Love You Forever” by Robert Munsch. I read both of these often to the girls, but the second one I read to them everyday that I was pregnant with them and each of us three have our own copies. I plan on giving a copy to any (and all) grandchildren. Such a sweet story.
