Missing Page

Love this book, unfortunately can't read it through due to missing pages!


The cover of the book is in good condition but all of the pages have mold/mildew on them. I will try to return. I will throw it away if unable to return it. It’s not suitable for my grandchildren.

Great story in great condition!

I loved this book as a kid and I love reading it to my baby even more. It's such a cute story about a toy bear looking for a button to fix his overalls in the hopes a kid will take him home and love him. It's a very sweet story. I ordered a giant board book in very good condition and it the condition of the book was amazing!

No book cover

I have ordered several books now. This is the second book that came without a book cover, since this is an older book, children need the cover to know what book it is when on the shelf. Had I of known, I wouldn’t of ordered this one.

Good book, but…

The book is a classic, of course. Very nostalgic. But the copy I received was in way worse condition than advertised. Pages were ripped and taped back together, despite me paying for a very good quality copy… Don’t get me wrong, I’m glad to have it, but I wish there was more quality control.

A classic for toddlers

My toddler loves this book, the pages are full of bright illustrations and the story is short enough to keep her attention while also deep enough to teach her tenderness towards her toys. We have such a precious time reading this book together.

Destroyed book

I was so excited for a this book to come in but it was rated acceptable and wasn’t. Most pages have marker scribbles in huge circles all over it. I understand markings and scratches but it was way worse

Not happy

The first books I ordered were in great shape for the price i paid. The 4 books i received today were very used and had price stickers on one for .99 cents... i paid 4.19. I might actually be done with this app.

No Bear with book ): but great quality!

The quality is amazing! I got an excellent book and it’s so cute to read to my 5 month old as she loves the colors! I was just under the impression I would also get the bear that came with the book when I ordered and I didn’t receive it. But other than that, it’s really nice!

Not what I ordered. Not spanish

Ordered the Spanish version so we could expand our Spanish bookshelf for our baby in our bilingual household and got the English version instead. Not what I ordered.

A classic that captures new and old fans

We love Corduroy and Lisa and we read it often

Did not purchase a Spanish version but got one anyways

Sent me a Spanish version even though I purchased the English version

great book but am sad about the quality that I received!!!

I love this book but unfortunately the version of the book I chose (Quality: good) came with a page cut out. I think that qualifies as “acceptable” but I don’t think it merits a bad review. Just thought I’d say the quality wasn’t what I expected; even for secondhand, a page cut out doesn’t seem “good” to me.

My Daughters Favorite Book

I remember reading this story as a child and my 3 year old daughter loves it.

Great Winner

I loved this teddy bear who longed for his home and his mother. I like this story of not only receiving but also giving love. Corduroy was lucky enough to find Lisa but not all teddy bears are that lucky... Corduroy is exactly the kind of teddy bear that I love. Other great books that I highly recommend are The Very Hungry Caterpillar board book and especially Why Some Cats are Rascals, Book 2.

Everybody loves Corduroy

The little bear named Corduroy may not be as beautiful and perfect as the doll sitting next to him on the toy shelf, but he is more loveable. Corduroy is learning some of the struggles in life, just as we do in our lives. He is desperately searching for his lost botton because he wants a little girl to buy him. But the only thing the girl is searching for is not on the outside, it is on the inside. She loves Corduroy for Corduroy. This teaches children an excellent lesson. Love people for their personality.

Corduroy in Gifts That Are Kid Tested and Parent Approved
Gifts That Are Kid Tested and Parent Approved
Published by Melina Lynne • December 14, 2015

Many memories will be shared over a good book, starting with the time-honored tradition of the bed-time story. Who here remembers begging their parents to read just one more book? "I promise I will go right to bed after the next one;" "I'm not tired yet;" "But I really like both of the books. I don't want to choose." Do any of these sound familiar?
