"Corduroy" was a favorite of my oldest daughter when she was growing up. It is the story of a little teddy bear who lived in a toy store and anxiously awaited for someone to love him and carry him away, although he is not perfect and is missing a button. When a young girl sees him she falls in love with him. But, there is not enough money for her mom to buy him for her and they leave without him. Early the next morning, the little girl arrives with money she had saved to buy Corduroy and carry him home in her arms to be with her. He arrives at her home and she fixes his button for him, telling him she loves him just the way he is.

Learning Extension: "Corduroy" is an excellent choice for preschooler's language and literacy development as well as social emotional development. A sweet story, it is about accepting a person just the way they are, and that somehow even when you are not perfect, love will find it's way to you. This would be an excellent opportunity for an art project asking the children to think of a time when they needed a friend.
