9780141364889: The Velveteen Rabbit: Or How Toys Became Real (Puffin Read Aloud)

"There was once a velveteen rabbit, and in the beginning he was really splendid." "Real" is a magical word to the Velveteen Rabbit -- he doesn't know quite what it means. But the Skin Horse, who is old and wise, knows, and he shares the secret: Being Real means being loved. Margery Williams's classic story of how a boy's love transforms a velveteen rabbit into a real one has resonated in the hearts of children for decades. Now Lou Fancher has adapted this storybook for a younger audience, and it has been brilliantly illustrated by Steve Johnson and Lou Fancher. Here is a feast for both eye and ear -- the perfect book for any child who cherishes a stuffed animal -- and believes in magic.

Review:

A stuffed toy rabbit (with real thread whiskers) comes to life in Margery Williams' timeless tale of the transformational power of love. Given as a Christmas gift to a young boy, the Velveteen Rabbit lives in the nursery with all of the other toys, waiting for the day when the Boy (as he is called) will choose him as a playmate. In time, the shy Rabbit befriends the tattered Skin Horse, the wisest resident of the nursery, who reveals the goal of all nursery toys: to be made "real" through the love of a human. "'Real isn't how you are made,' said the Skin Horse. 'It's a thing that happens to you. When a child loves you for a long, long time, not just to play with, but REALLY loves you, then you become Real.'" This sentimental classic--perfect for any child who's ever thought that maybe, just maybe, his or her toys have feelings--has been charming children since its first publication in 1922.

Review:

Celebrate the Easter season with "The Velveteen Rabbit, " one of the most beloved of bunnies, as he celebrates his 75th anniversary! This special edition, complete with the original story and artwork as they appeared in 1922, remains a timeless classic in children's literature with over 1.5 million copies in print. Ever since its first publication, this wondrous tale of the velveteen rabbit has delighted readers of all ages with its story of wisdom and love. Few other children's books so beautifully capture the spiritual meaning of Easter as does this simple tale of transformation and redemption through a child's unwavering love.
