Reviews - What do customers think about Corduroy?

I Know I've Always Wanted a Friend  Jun 6, 2008
Corduroy is very charming story about an adorable teddy bear who lives in a department store. No one wants him because he is missing a button from his overalls. After a night time adventure in the department store, a young girl named Lisa comes to buy Corduroy with her very own money and to take him home as her very own bear. Lisa refuses a bag for Corduroy, and lovingly carries him home. Even though Lisa loves him just the way he is, she sews a new button on his overalls to make him more comfortable. Corduroy realizes that at last he has a home and a friend; the two things he has always wanted most.

This warm and heartfelt story teaches children the all important life lessons of unconditional love and a true home. Every child wants and NEEDS to be loved for who and what they are, no matter what mischief the get into. While everyone else ignored Corduroy simply because he was missing a button, to Lisa he was the perfect bear to take home and love completely.

Apparently, Corduroy is classic that has been around for many years. While I missed this story during my childhood, I more than thrilled to share it with my 3 year old. Corduroy is well loved in our house, and he will be in yours, too.
Childhood classic  May 15, 2008
I grew up with this book and had to order it so I could see it again. The story is simple and sweet, as are the illustrations. Tugs at the heartstrings: I recommend to anyone who has a heart or wants to have one. :-)
Not bad. Not good. Just okay.  May 10, 2008
At our house we don't read just at bedtime--which means we read dozens of books a day. I was looking to add to our bookshelf in the area of beloved favorites. From the nostalgic reviews I thought I had a winner in Corduroy but alas neither the one reading nor the listeners seem to be as as enchanted as I was hoping. It is just an okay book.

There are positive aspects worth mentioning. We have adopted 3 dark skinned children so the main characters reflecting the same also added to the plus column for me. For little ones there is a bit of adventure with nothing scary. It ends on a happy note. For 5 to 7 year olds beginning to read on their own the text on each page is limited and the picture depicts the text. The red cover makes it easy to spot on the bookshelf which will help to identify it quickly if it is a favorite.
The best children's book!  May 10, 2008
Love it. My son loves it! He asks for it every night. We LOVE Corduroy. It is the sweetest, most wholesome children's book.
Still a Classic  May 4, 2008
While browsing books for my 21month old daughter, I came across "Corduroy," which I fondly remembered as one of my own childhood favorites... After receiving & reading it with my daughter, I could see why. The story of the little stuffed bear searching for his lost button so that someone will buy him & take him home is as endearing now as when I first heard it 35 years ago! The illustrations are simple but sweet, and the idea of a stuffed bear coming to life & roaming through the "palace" of a department store in which he lives is a fantasy that's appealing to readers of ANY age. There's even suspense; will the Night Watchman catch Corduroy before his quest is complete? Despite his modest and imperfect appearance, Corduroy is finally "chosen" by the little girl, Lisa, and he finds the true meaning of friendship, love, and "home." While the age-old message that external beauty doesn't matter & it's what's inside that truly counts could've come off as corny and/or cliched, Corduroy's story somehow keeps it charming & poignant-I guess thats why I remembered this book with such affection!
