Publisher's Summary

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....

Delightful

This is the first time I read (heard) this book, although it has been on my wish list for years. What an absolute joy. The narrator is perfect, the story has unexpected ups and downs, and the lesson within the story are timeless. Quite pleased and highly recommend this version.

I'm not crying, you're crying

My favorite all-time classic children's (and adult). I love the narration. Perfect for this English countryside setting.
