Loved by My 2 Year Old

My 2 1/2 year old adores this book. In fact, I have had to make a rule of no more than twice a day. He calls it the "laundry book". I must disagree about the caged bear scene being frightening. My son specifically requests the caged bear scene and is obviously not scared in the least. It is a sweet tale of a little girl and her little bear. I love how the author uses some big words in a children's book. My son's vocabulary has grown exponentially!

A sequel to the classic

Lisa's bear Corduroy gets lost in the laundromat. Lisa looks for him but the manager must close up for the night. Then Corduroy goes on his adventures. It's a very good picture book for children 3-6.

More adventures with Lisa's very own bear. . .

In this installment of Corduroy's adventures with Lisa, we see that some time has passed since she first brought him home from the department store. She's taller, wearing her hair a little straighter, and her mom looks like she had a makeover, too. Corduroy, however, is wearing the same green overalls he did in the first book and has managed to keep both buttons on this time. Early on in the book, however, Corduroy decides he needs a pocket, and in the search for one gets separated from Lisa and her mom while they are in the laundromat. They leave without him, setting him up for a meeting with a friendly stranger who washes his overalls for him, as well as encounters with such laundromat staples as powder detergent and pushcarts. As in the first book, Lisa comes back for him the next day, and once again her needle and thread come to the rescue. This book and "Corduroy" are the only two Corduroy books my daughter and I have read. I wonder if there are others, and what kind of sartorial splendor Corduroy will be arrayed in next if the trend continued!

Finding A Pocket

I really liked the book A Pocket for Corduroy. The pictures are colorful and full of details that go along with the story. Corduroy is a curious bear looking for a pocket to put on his pants. While he is looking for his pocket, he finds himself in many different adventurous situations in a laundromat. This book allows the child to use his/her imagination. It also teaches children to be helpful to others.

Corduroy continues to update his wardrobe:)

In this sequel to the original "Corduroy" tale, the little furry one accompanies Lisa and her mom to do the family wash. As he overhears Lisa's mom telling her to clean out the pockets in the clothes, Corduroy realizes his overalls don't have pockets and he thinks he'd better go remedy that situation right now. The rest of the book is a "bear's eye" view of the sights, smells, and sounds of an inner-city laundromat. What I love most about the Corduroy books and characters are that they show everyday life as I wish it could be--where strangers take a moment to do kindnesses for one another, and even a little innocent fellow who needs help can find it without having to ask. The original Corduroy book was a gift to my daughter. I bought this sequel for myself as much as I did for her. Parents and kids, curl up and enjoy this together!
