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.
