Corduroy 

Last night we wrapped Charlotte up in her swaddle sleepsack and snuggled up to read Don Freeman’s classic, Corduroy.  Adam had never read it as a kid or at least didn’t remember doing so.  It’s a sweet story and still remains relevant today – a toy wants a home, a little girl sees past his imperfections and loves him anyway. She’s only 10 weeks old, but seeing the good that is behind imperfections is a skill I want Charlotte to have one day. It was a quick, cozy sort of story and perfect for bedtime. Charlotte didn’t pay much attention to the illustrations, though I appreciated them, and she happily drifted off to sleep while I was reading. That’s definitely a bedtime success. I’m really looking forward to sharing this story with her again when she’s old enough to appreciate the storyline!
