Corduroy Writes a Letter based on characters created by Don Freeman

Corduroy and Lisa are back and they are learning the benefit of writing letters to bring about change.  Lisa and Corduroy visit the bakery and come home with cookies which Lisa notices is lacking sprinkles.  Her mother encourages Lisa to write a letter.  When Lisa gives up writing a letter reasoning, "I am just a little girl," and the owner would not listen to her, Corduroy writes the letter.  The next week's visit to the library proves his efforts valuable when there are more sprinkles on the cookies.  The same thing happens when Lisa, her mother, and Corduroy visit the theater and notice lights are out in the letters T and H.  Again Corduroy writes a letter when Lisa decides against doing it which ends with positive results.  Corduroy and Lisa are listening to the radio when Lisa decides it is her turn to write a letter to the radio station to suggest they play her favorite song.  Will Lisa's letter have the same benefit as Corduroy's?
