"Why did you choose this product?"
This is just what I was looking for. I remember this book from when I was a little girl and I love the little bear. I hope my grandson loves it as much as I did!...
Gradually, he eased into making a living sketching impressions of Broadway shows forThe New York Times and The Herald Tribune. This shift was helped along, in no small part, by a rather heartbreaking incident: he lost his trumpet. One evening, he was so engrossed in sketching people on the subway, he simply forgot it was sitting on the seat beside him. This new career turned out to be a near-perfect fit for Don, though, as he had always loved the theater.
He was introduced to the world of childrens literature when William Saroyan asked him to illustrate several books. Soon after, he began to write and illustrate his own books, a career he settled into comfortably and happily. Through his writing, he was able to create his own theater: "I love the flow of turning the pages, the suspense of what's next. Ideas just come at me and after me. It's all so natural. I work all the time, long into the night, and it's such a pleasure. I don't know when the time ends. I've never been happier in my life!"
Don died in 1978, after a long and successful career. He created many beloved characters in his lifetime, perhaps the most beloved among them a stuffed, overall-wearing bear named Corduroy.
Don Freeman was the author and illustrator of many popular books for children, includingCorduroy, A Pocket for Corduroy, and the Caldecott Honor Book Fly High, Fly Low.

Very disappointed in the product. We expected a full size bear and book. What we actually received was very small. The bear is about 4 inches tall. I expect the bear to get lost immediately and having to replace it in the future. Not worth the extra money to buy the package. Buy the book and bear separate if you want a full size bear.Read More
