This is one of the all-time warmest stories every written for children – one that still catches my heart strings even though it has been years since my children and I basked in its glow.

Lisa is a girl who lives with her mother in a big-city apartment. One day while she and her mother are shopping in a big department store, she spots Corduroy, the cuddliest of stuffed bears, on a shelf and falls in love with him. Her mother can’t afford to get him for Lisa just then, so she bids a sad farewell to her dear Corduroy. Corduroy is sad too, and decides to go on an after-hours hunt through the department store in search of a button to replace the one missing on his overalls. His adventures and Lisa’s return will captivate you and your children. And, if you’re anything like me, they’ll live in your heart a long, long time.
