Book Review: Corduroy by Don Freeman

This is a book I remember reading often with my Dad. The pictures are great and the story is cute and exciting. Corduroy the stuffed bear lives on a shelf in a department store. One night after the customers have gone, he realizes he has lost a button on his overalls. The search begins for corduroys button but just when he's given up on finding it a small girl purchases him and well...you'll have to read the rest to find out what happens.

Find this book in your local library or purchase it on amazon. After reading this book teach your child to sew large buttons onto a plastic canvas.

 Here's what you'll need:

  • Shoelaces or any other kind of string
  • Large craft buttons with holes big enough for a shoelace/string to go through
  • plastic canvas-you can purchase this at your local craft store.
