About this item
In the nursery, the Velveteen Rabbit and Skin Horse talk about how a toy becomes Real. "When a child loves you for a long, long time... then you become Real," the wise old Skin Horse explains. A few days later, the Velveteen Rabbit finds himself tucked into bed with a little boy, and the two soon become inseparable. This extraordinary story is about love and the value it can invest in the people and things around you.
Still as poignant today as it has ever been, 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.
