Item description for Corduroy Goes to School (Lift-the-Flap Book (Viking).) by Don Freeman, B. G. Hennessy & Lisa McCue...

Overview
Follows Corduroy as he plays with his friends, feeds the classroom pets, listens to a story, practices his letters, has a snack, and draws a picture.

Publishers Description
Corduroy has a lot to do at school today. He has to bring in something that starts with the letter "B," feed the classroom pets, listen to a story, paint, have a snack, and help clean up. And all of his favorite friends are there to share the school day with him. In seven colorful spreads, children can lift the flaps and see what's hiding in the cubby, behind the swing, under the drawing pad or in many more inventive places.
And Corduroy, the lovable, cuddly bear, is just the right, reassuring presence to make children feel comfortable with all the early experiences school can bring.

More About Don Freeman, B. G. Hennessy & Lisa McCue


Register your artisan biography and upload your photo! Don Freeman was born in San Diego, California, in 1908. At an early age, he received a trumpet as a gift from his father. He practiced obsessively and eventually joined a California dance band. After graduating from high school, he ventured to New York City to study art under the tutelage of Joan Sloan and Harry Wickey at the Art Students' League. He managed to support himself throughout his schooling by playing his trumpet evenings, in nightclubs and at weddings.

Gradually, he eased into making a living sketching impressions of Broadway shows for The New York Times and The Herald Tribune. This shift was helped along, in no small part, by a rather heartbreaking incident: he lost his trumpet. One evening, he was so engrossed in sketching people on the subway, he simply forgot it was sitting on the seat beside him. This new career turned out to be a near-perfect fit for Don, though, as he had always loved the theater.

He was introduced to the world of children's literature when William Saroyan asked him to illustrate several books. Soon after, he began to write and illustrate his own books, a career he settled into comfortably and happily. Through his writing, he was able to create his own theater: "I love the flow of turning the pages, the suspense of what's next. Ideas just come at me and after me. It's all so natural. I work all the time, long into the night, and it's such a pleasure. I don't know when the time ends. I've never been happier in my life!"

Don died in 1978, after a long and successful career. He created many beloved characters in his lifetime, perhaps the most beloved among them a stuffed, overall-wearing bear named Corduroy.

Don Freeman was the author and illustrator of many popular books for children, including Corduroy, A Pocket for Corduroy, and the Caldecott Honor Book Fly High, Fly Low.

Reviews - What do customers think about Corduroy Goes to School (Lift-the-Flap Book (Viking).)?

Adorable and perfect for getting ready for preschool!  Jul 11, 2006
My 2 year old son loves this book! We started reading a few weeks before preschool began, and it really helped him know what to expect at school. Even after school started, he wants to read it every night and tell us what he does at school that is just like Corduroy, as well as what is different. We've been able to discuss sharing, his teachers, and get more information from him about how he's feeling at school.
The illustrations are vivid and colorful, and there are no errors in the book as the one review stated. The writing is nothing spectacular, but its really more about the story teller's skills when kids are at this age.
One word of caution: the pages are soft, as are the flaps, not like board-based lift-the-flap books. If your child is very rough with things, this could tear pretty easily.
 
mother of toddler  Oct 4, 2005
If your child is starting pre-school, this is a great book for showing your little one what to expect because Corduroy and his friends do the same things that your child will do in school -- paint, do puzzles, read, play on the swing set, etc.
Many of the books about going to school have the characters doing other things (like dogs burying bones, ducks going swimming, etc.)

Also, our book does not contain the error that the reviewer below mentions. The colors of the letters in the illustrations match what the text says.

 
Maybe the EDITORS Should Go to School  Nov 2, 2003
My 21-month-old son enjoys this cute book immensely, but it contains a serious error. The book states that Corduroy makes "a big blue 'B,' and a big green 'C,' but the illustration shows a red (rather than blue) B and a purple (rather than green) C. That is an unforgivable mistake for a book that should be helping children learn to identify colors.
