2 The Story of the “Finding Corduroy a Home”
Corduroy is a cuddly teddy bear who is waiting patiently on the shelf of a department store for a home. Corduroy climbs down from the shelf one night after all the shoppers have gone home in order to look for his missing button. He encounters many adventures such as getting on an elevator thinking it is a mountain and he goes to the furniture section believing it to be a palace. Then, Corduroy accidentally knocks over a lamp when trying to pull a button off a mattress. Help Corduroy and the other toys conquer their adventures through the department store and find their way back to the shelf so that they can be brought to a new home. Home Page
