A Pocket for Corduroy

This week we read A Pocket for Corduroy by Don Freeman. Look below for a video of the storybook. We talked about the words laundry, pocket, inside, and search. Help your child learn the words.

Ask your child what each word means, and if they don’t know, explain the meaning to them or show them an example.


Laundry are clothes that need to be washed. Ask your child to help you do the laundry.


A pocket is a small piece of material on your clothing that holds things. Ask your child what they could hide inside their pocket. Pretend to search for the item.


Inside is the inner part of something.


Search is to look around very carefully in order to find something. Play a searching game, asking your child to search for different objects in your home. Or, play a game where you hide objects inside or outside a box or cup. Ask your child to tell you whether the object is inside or outside.

Thank you for helping your child grow their vocabulary!
