Corduroy/ by Don Freeman

The sweet tale of a little bear in corduroy overalls waiting to be purchased department store, CORDUROY by Don Freeman is a beautifully illustrated book with a simple text and huge appeal to anyone with a heart. Mine was nearly bleeding when I read it  to my friend, Myra, in the nursing home.  We were coming to the part about the unconditional love of the little girl who purchased him and the happy ending when Corduroy said, "This must be a home.  I know I've always wanted a home!" .....
And, Myra said,...... "Yes, who doesn't want a home?"
