The Velveteen Rabbit

Still as poignant today as it has ever been, Margery Williams' The Velveteen Rabbit is one of the best-loved children's books of all time. In the nursery, only the toys that are old and wise truly understand what it means to be Real. The Velveteen Rabbit, a newcomer to the nursery, asks one of the most knowledgeable toys, the Skin Horse, what being real means.
"Real isn't how you're made," says 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.
It doesn't happen all at once. You become ..." And so begins the Velveteen Rabbit's journey towards becoming real - through the love of a child ...
