Corduory is an adorable book about a teddy bear who lives in a department store. One day a little girl asks her Mom to buy the bear, but her Mom tells the little girl no because she doesn't want to spend any more money, and also the bear is missing a button. Corduroy is sad about his missing button, and that night tries to remedy the situation. The book brings imagination to life, and in the end the bear finds exactly what he was looking for, a home. This would be a fantastic book to implement in a lower elementary classroom. Because the button is a fixture in the book, activities involving buttons would be a great way to teach a lesson. For kindergarten, buttons could be sorted according to size, color, or match. The concept of graphing could be introduced to the classroom using buttons.
