Happy birthday to author and illustrator, Don Freeman! As Don used to say, “An idea ‘lit’ on me.” Well, one sure did when in 1968 he created Corduroy, the story of a toy bear’s adventures in a department store. Hmmm… has anyone seen a stray button? Join Corduroy on his journey to find a lost button and a new friendship in the book The National Education Association dubbed one of its “Teachers Top 100 Books for Children” and the School Library Journal called one of the “Top 100 Picture Books” of all time. We’ll also find out what happens when Corduroy finds himself exploring a big-city neighborhood in the sequel, A Pocket for Corduroy.
