The next day, Lisa returns to the store with her hard-earned money, ready to buy Corduroy. Upon seeing his missing button, Lisa’s mother agrees to purchase Corduroy for her daughter, recognizing that love and belonging are more important than perfection. Lisa is overjoyed to finally have Corduroy as her own, and Corduroy is equally thrilled to have found a loving home with Lisa.
