Summary

Margery Williams' heartwarming tale, first published in 1922, is still as touching now as it was nearly a century ago

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.
