31 Authors Children Love: Don Freeman

Don Freeman is the author of the beloved Corduroy series.

But I think our favorite is:

Dandelion (such a clever play with words) has been invited to a party. He gets himself all dressed up and then…well, you’ll just have to read it for yourself. I bought a copy of this one (complete with a cassette tape, remember those?) at a library sale. My girls listened to that tape until it just about fell apart. (And anyway, it’s getting hard to buy a tape player.)

Anyway, Dandelion is a great story about being yourself.

Others by Don Freeman:




There are other books about Corduroy, but I don’t think any of them quite capture the magic of the original.
