This Corduroy companion story has all the charm of the original with a gentle but lively plot and highly descriptive pictures. As in the original tale, author Don Freeman's watercolor illustrations are irresistible. The detail and vivid facial expressions will enable even the youngest in the recommended age group to understand the text simply by looking at the pictures. (One 3-year-old "read" the book using just the pictures as a storyline guide.) Older kids can't resist Corduroy's charm, either. A group of 6-year-olds loved it, and they unanimously voted the scene "when Corduroy slid down the soap slide" as their favorite part.

Did we miss something on diversity?

Research shows a connection between kids' healthy self-esteem and positive portrayals in media. That's why we've added a new "Diverse Representations" section to our reviews that will be rolling out on an ongoing basis. You can help us help kids by suggesting a diversity update.
