The Lovereading4Kids comment

Who says stuffed toys don’t have feelings? This stuffed rabbit does when he’s laughed at for not being ‘real’ like the other rabbits. So he sets off to prove that you can be real just by being loved by a child, in a wonderful story with positive messages about the value of friendship. This is a new edition in paperback of the ORIGINAL story and artwork by Margery Williams and William Nicholson that was first published in 1922.


The Velveteen Rabbit by Margery Williams
