Product Overview

Today is the Fourth of July, and Corduroy and his friends are having a fun- filled picnic. They eat tasty treats and play games in the hot summer sun. Then it's time to cool down with a dip in the pool. Next they take part in an Independence Day parade! Scruffy Pup bangs the drum, Checkerboard Bunny plays the flute, and Corduroy carries the American flag. Once it's dark outside, the friends gather to watch an amazing fireworks display.

This sturdy, brightly colored shaped board book is perfect for the youngest fans of Corduroy, one of the best-loved characters in children's books for nearly 40 years.

Author Info
Don Freeman
As a young man, Don Freeman was torn between becoming an illustrator or a musician. He found himself forced to choose illustration after he mistakenly left his trumpet on the subway one night after being caught up in sketching the other passengers. Needing money, he began to submit illustrations to the New York Herald Tribune and his career began. He wrote his first book for children, CHUGGY AND THE BLUE CABOOSE, in 1951 with his wife, Lydia, for their son Roy. Freeman wrote for both children and adults and also illustrated the works of such authors as William Saroyan and James Thurber. He may be best remembered for his creation of the picture book CORDUROY, in which a department store bear hopes that someone will buy him and give him a real home.
