Synopsis: A winning, completely childlike picture book in which a stuffed bear waiting hopefully in a toy department finds a home with a little black girl. Endearing, brightly colored pictures.

Discussion topics: To be posted soon ...

Craft ideas:
•  Make a big button badge, and draw pictures of your friends.
•  Draw a picture of Cordoroy in his new home.

*Note: These craft ideas are just suggestions. You can use them, but you don’t have to use them. You can expand upon them, or add your own twist. Remember, though, that the focus of your time should not be on the development and execution of a craft; the focus should be on the read-aloud and the enjoyment of the book!
