This was one of my favorite books as a child! Corduroy is having a birthday and all of his friends are doing everything they can to make it fun! There's pull back flaps to engage the reader and keep their attention. I really liked the illustrations. They were all brightly colored and very detail and went along with the story line perfectly. There is a sort of 'listing activities' theme, that helped linked to the pictures as well. The listing would also be helpful for children to get into their own routine.
