Nursery magic is very strange and wonderful, and only those playthings that are old and wise and experienced like the Skin Horse understand all about it.
Like the Skin Horse, Margery Williams understood how toys--and people--become real through the wisdom and experience of love. This reissue of a favorite classic, with the original story and illustrations as they first appeared in 1922, will work its magic for all who read it.
I've heard of The Velveteen Rabbit and I saw it on my mom's iPad and I decided to read it. I was immediately entranced by the stunning story of The Velveteen Rabbit.
The Velveteen Rabbit is a heart-warming story of a little toy rabbit that belongs to the Boy and because of the Boy's love for it, the velveteen rabbit becomes real to the boy. The little toy rabbit's coat becomes worn and the seam comes undone, the ears turn from pink to grey and the he becomes all saggy, but the little rabbit doesn't mind because he knows that he is now Real.
However, when the little boy falls ill and he's germs populate the rabbit, the little velveteen rabbit has to be chucked out. But a miracle happens, thanks to a kind fairy! He becomes a real little rabbit, not just to the boy, but to the world. When the little rabbit had been thrown out and forgotten it broke my heart and I just wanted him to be happy and feel loved again.
The Velveteen is a heart-warming story that made my heart ache with love and happiness for the rabbit. A beautiful tale that should be shared with all.
I give it: 5/5 CUPCAKES!
