Book review of Corduroy by Don Freeman; book 5 of 365 children's books in a year

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.

You can read a full review of Corduroy by Don Freeman by clicking on the title of this post.

There are lots of children's books out there about bears - real and otherwise - and I mentioned some of them in this post about Berlioz the Bear by Jan Brett.  Below are some ways to use Corduroy to teach various subjects.
