Corduroy is not just a fabric that makes a swishy sound when those wearing pants made from it walk. It is also a beloved children's book by Don Freeman that has been around since 1968. The book is about a bear named Corduroy and his search for a missing button and how is chosen to go home with a little girl named Lisa.
