We all know author and illustrator Don Freeman best by his iconic, beloved, green-overalled, button-less bear, Corduroy. How many times have you read this favorite to your children? It's a classic! Now, let me recommend a few more Freeman titles to give you a break from reading Corduroy.
Since it's fall, start out with Earl the Squirrel. Earl's mother tells him that it's "high time you went out and learned how to find acorns on your own." Find out how Earl acquires his bright red scarf, the only color that vibrates through Freeman's black-and-white scratchboard illustrations. Then join Earl on his adventurous quest to forage acorns for the winter.
So readers, please, please share your comments on your favorite Don Freeman book!
