    • Lovable Corduroy Bear realizes his overalls don't have a pocket. On a mission to find something that would make a suitable pocket, he gets left in a laudromat over night. Nice sequel to the first.


    • To check out my review: dancinginth3darkI wish this book was never written.The entire time as I was reading this book I kept having this thought that Corduroy is going to turn into Chucky and kill the little girl. This bear creeps me out and this is meant for children. I believe the author could have written Corduroy as a standalone and you wouldn't hear any complaints for a sequel.We meet Corduroy again and he speaks like it is no big deal that a stuffed teddy bear can speak and communicate to [...]


    • I found the original Corduroy a revelation and the sequel even more so. In the first - written in the '60s -- an elegant black woman and her daughter shop in a Manhattan department store. The sequel was written about ten years later, and now Lisa's mother -- still elegant -- has traded out her A-line dress for bell bottoms and the launder mat where mother and daughter go to wash clothes is populated by bearded artists in berets. Although stuffed bears don't change, the world has. These books mov [...]


    • I liked the diversity in this book. It wasn't in your face, it just was. The human characters were likable and the reader could relate to their feelings and actions. The colors, patterns and textures depicted in the drawings encourage the reader to stop and examine them. This adds to the story. I wasn't as drawn to the character of Corduroy. If not for the supporting characters and the well done drawings I would have given this a 3 rating. I found the supporting characters more likable and inspi [...]


    • This sequel is as adorable as its predecessor and another one of my favorites when I was growing up! I had to have a bear just like Corduroy. At that time, there wasn’t any merchandise. So my mom bought me a bear and sewed green corduroy overalls for him. Then when I read this book, my Corduroy needed a purple pocket. I remember waking up one Christmas morning to find that my mom had made him a purple pocket. Needless to say, I was thrilled! And yes, I still have my Corduroy!


    • I don't know how many times I have read this book but it is probably the best book I have ever received (along with Are You My Mother). In fact, this is the first book I ever read. I remember the day my kindergarten teacher handed everyone a copy of the book, a pair of scissors and a glue stick. In retrospect, they probably shouldn't have given children a book and scissors at the same time, but no matter. I asked my mother to read it to me every night until I had mesmerized the story (which I di [...]


    • One day while at the laundromat, teddy bear Corduroy decides he needs a pocket. His search for one introduces him to some strange new things. Can he find a pocket? Will Lisa be able to find him?Even as a kid, I liked this book more than Corduroy’s first adventure. I think it’s because of the creativity. We know what Corduroy finds along his way, but his explanations for them are creative, logical, and fun. The illustrations capture the book perfectly, and will please kids and parents alike. [...]


    • I always wondered why the little stuffed Corduroy bears have those purple pockets, and now I know! In this book, Lisa and her mother take Corduroy to the laundromat where the curious bear wanders off and gets lost. When Lisa finds him, he tells her he wants a pocket, and she promptly obliges by sewing on a purple one.


    • This was my favorite book when I was a child. Our library had two copies and I would return one and run to the shelves to get the other. The library started hiding a copy for me so there would always be one available to me, otherwise there were tears. Now I own two copies. And a bear.


    • This story of the classic character, Corduroy, wanting a pocket. Corduroy gets left at the laundromat after Corduroy goes looking for fabric to make himself a pocket. Corduroy gets stuck inside an artist's laundry bag and the artists washes and dries his clothes for him. Afterwards, the laundromat closes and Corduroy falls asleep. In the morning, Lisa, his owner, comes back to get him. She then gives Corduroy a pocket and a card with his name on it. The images in this story look to be drawn with [...]


    • A Pocket for Corduroy is about a teddy bear that wants a pocket. He goes to the laundromat with his owner, but eventually loses his owner and explores the laundromat on his own. Corduroy is left their overnight and plays in what he thinks is snow and sleeps in what he thinks is a cage. The next morning, his owner comes back for him and sews him a pocket. I think the main theme of this book is that if you set your mind to something, you can achieve it. I have always loved Corduroy books since I w [...]


    • Corduroy is a classic childhood story and there are many reasons for that, but one I thought of was because of how he comes to life. Kids love to play pretend with their toys and it's what make this books a staple bedtime story because it toys with their imagination. This book also is simple and children can follow along when reading with their parents or teachers. The illustrations in the book are bright and vivid and give the book a friendly feel to it.


    • First sentence: Late one summer afternoon Lisa and her mother took their laundry to the laundromat. As always on such trip Lisa carried along her toy bear, Corduroy. Premise/plot: Corduroy is "lost" at the laundromat when he leaves the chair Lisa placed him in, and goes off in search of something to make a pocket out of. Fortunately, he is not washed OR dried. Though his overalls do come off! Corduroy has a unique way of seeing the world--and his take on laundry baskets and soap flakes is intere [...]


    • A pocket for Corduroy is the next book after Corduroy. Personally I have never heard of this book until now. In my opinion it is not as good as the first, however, the images are still enjoyable and Corduroy is still a mischievous bear. Instead of being on a mission for a missing button he is now looking for a pocket.


    • This was one of my favorite books as a child! I even remember watching a play done at the local arts and drama high school based off of this book. Absolutely timeless, i still remember six year old me falling in love with the adorable bear!


    • This book was simple and cute with a lot of underlying messages that relate to kids in and out of a classroom. the story is very sweet and engaging and the pictures are very cute and nice to look at. Good read.


    • Fantasy. Grades K-2. This book is about a little bear who wants a pocket for his overalls, but doesn’t just ask the girl who owns him and gets himself into a little predicament. This book is a good book for students to make predictions about what Corduroy will do nexts.




    • Corduroy wanders away and gets left in a laundromat. Although some elements seem slightly dated, such as some of the stereotypes, this story is more pleasant than most kids books.


    • Genre: Children's Lit / FictionUnique Feature: This is the second book in the series of Corduroy books, and is an ultimate favorite of the students.Grade levels suggested K-3



    • A cute story that is relatable for young children. The characters also expose children to diversity!





    • I have always loved the Corduroy books. They are a favorite among children and I will for sure have them on the shelves of my classroom.
