But I digress. The setting for Corduroy was a large department store, but the story is actually about how minor physical imperfections are unimportant; rather, it is one's character that counts. Everybody deserves to be loved, and to give love, regardless of how they may look. In Corduroy's case, his missing button may make him unappealing as a goods purchase, but to the little girl who discovers him, he will become a wonderful friend. Buttons can be sewed back on, after all.
So, caregivers, I hope our book trailer below encourages you to read this book to your children. Mine loved it, and I hope yours will, too.
