Corduroy - By Don Freeman
This delightful book is about a little stuffed bear who lives in a department store. Even though the teddy bear is missing a button, an African-American girl named Lisa immediately falls in love with him. The story not only teaches children that they can save their own money to make purchases, but also that it is important for them to ask a parent's permission before doing so. The adorable illustrations look like sketches splashed with watercolors.
