🎉📖📚Children’s book week📚📖🎉

📖Librarians favorite children’s book and interview.📖

Librarian Kim’s favorite children’s book is Corduroy by Don Freeman 🐻

Corduroy is a sweet little stuffed animal bear ready to move to his forever home. Day after day he waits with all the other stuffed animals in the department store for someone to take him home. It seems like forever and like he may possibly never leave his little shelf in the store. Until one day a little girl sees him! She asks her mother if they can buy him. The little girls mom tells her ‘Not today dear, I’ve spent to much already. Besides he doesn’t look new. He lost the button to one of his shoulder straps.’ And so begins Corduroys journey to find the missing button and a forever home.

NTCL: How old were you the first time you heard this story?
Kim: “maybe 5 or 6?”
NTCL: Who is your favorite character in the story?
Kim: “Corduroy! I sympathized with him and thought he was so cute.”
NTCL: Who was the first person to read it to you?
Kim: “Our school Librarian at the time Mrs. Bratvold.”
NTCL: Did the story end the way you hoped it would?
Kim: “Yes, Corduroy got the one thing he wanted the most, and more.”

NTCL: Julie, The first time you heard this story, how old were you?
Julie: “I was three.”

NTCL: Who was the first person to read it to you?
Julie: “My mother or my babysitter?”
NTCL: Did the story end the way you thought it would?
Julie: “It ended the way I always hoped it would. I would not change a thing about the story maybe make it a little shorter.”
