  • The Velveteen Rabbit: Or How Toys Become Real

    Margery Williams, Donna Terrence, Maurice Bassett

    Audiobook (Maurice Bassett, April 21, 2017)
    "What is real?" asked the Rabbit one day, when they were lying side by side in the nursery. "When a child loves you for a long, long time," replied the Skin Horse, "not just to play with, but really loves you, then you become real." The Rabbit sighed. He longed to become real.... After almost being forgotten on Christmas Day, the stuffed Velveteen Rabbit becomes a boy's most cherished toy, sharing in the adventures of childhood, from glorious summer days playing in the forest to cozy nights snuggled beneath warm covers. As the days pass, the rabbit's colors fade and his whiskers fall away, but the boy's love for him only deepens. Until one day the boy falls ill.... What happens next - as the transformative power of love works its magic - changes the Velveteen Rabbit forever.

    Margery Williams, Gregg Rizzo

    Audiobook (Gregg Rizzo, March 29, 2019)
    In The Velveteen Rabbit by Margery Williams, a stuffed rabbit sewn from velveteen is given as a Christmas present to a small boy. The boy plays with his other new presents and forgets the velveteen rabbit for a time. These presents are modern and mechanical, and snub the old-fashioned velveteen rabbit. The wisest and oldest toy in the nursery, the Skin Horse, who was owned by the boy's uncle, tells the rabbit about toys magically becoming real due to love from children. The rabbit is awed by this idea; however, his chances of achieving this wish are slight. One night the boy's Nana gives the rabbit to the boy to sleep with, in place of a lost toy. The rabbit becomes the boy's favorite toy, enjoying picnics with him in the spring, and the boy regards the rabbit as real. Time passes, and the rabbit becomes shabbier but happy. He meets some real rabbits in the summer, and they learn that he cannot hop as they do, and say that he is not real.
