Books of the Week – Don Freeman
M has named Corduroy, by Don Freeman as his favorite book since we first read it almost 2 years ago. I’m sure everyone reading this knows about Corduroy, the bear with the missing button, who wants to find a home and a friend. He is very loveable. :)
Recently we picked up Dandelion at the library. We both enjoyed this book about being authentic and not worrying too much about appearances. “Be who you are” books are always a big hit around here. :) I didn’t realize until later that it was also written by Don Freeman!
Then Vanessa, over at Silly Eagle Books mentioned Beady Bear, also by Don Freeman in this blog post. Of course we had to find it! It’s an adorable story of another toy bear and his silly experiment in living like a real bear.
Earl the Squirrel. We read it this past week. Without a doubt, this one is my favorite Don Freeman book (of what we’ve read so far). Earl is spoiled by a little girl named Jill and has no idea how to get his own acorns, which irks his mama to no end. Eventually he ends up getting some acorns on his own in a very unusual way. It’s just a cute, funny story. And well, who wouldn’t love a squirrel named Earl, right? :)
