The Velveteen Rabbit
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. Shown below is Lou Fancher's
adaptation of 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.
The CD and thumbdrive also include "The Tales of Peter Rabbit" by Beatrix Potter
