As Seen On Oprah: Corduroy by Don Freeman

Did you catch the really emotional episode of Oprah last Thursday where she paid tribute to soldiers who were either severely injured or killed in combat? We were so touched by the segment featuring the mother who visits her son’s grave site and reads Corduroy by Don Freeman to him. It was this soldier’s favorite books a child. In case you missed it, click here to watch the video.

Corduroy, which celebrated recently celebrated its 40th anniversary in print, has been been a favorite since in was published in 1968. It follows a little stuffed brown bear (wearing green overalls with one button missing) as he lives out the fantasy so many children have about their toys’  lives when they aren’t watching.

Celebrate this wonderful, timeless book with your children today, and talk to your children about honoring our soldiers at the same time.
