[Children's Book Review] Corduroy by Don Freeman

Book Review of Corduroy by Don Freeman

Corduroy by Don Freeman was one of my favorite books as a child. I hadn't read it since I was five or six, so this re-read was definitely needed!

Have you ever dreamed of being locked in a department store at night? The endearing story of Corduroy paints a picture of the adventures that might unfold (for a teddy bear at least) in such a situation.

My thoughts:
I just love this book so much! As it is a children's picture book, the storyline is very short and sweet. But even so, it's one that readers of all ages could enjoy!

The illustrations are also rather simple, but so lovely.

I thought it was so amazing to re-read this book and discover that I recognized each and every page. I had even memorized some of the dialogue!

Thanks for reading!
What was your favorite book as a child?


  1. Woot! Corduroy was one of my favorites too! I also loved The Sailor Dog by Margaret Wise Brown. :)

    1. Oh! I don't know if I ever read that one. I'll have to check it out :) I love children's books!
