    Beautiful and deeply touching At Meredith s wedding last year, her brother and sister read a passage from this book, including the below an inspired choice Real isn t how you are made, said 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 Does it hurt asked the Rabbit Sometimes, said the Skin Horse, for he was always truthful When you are Real you don t mind being hurt Does it happen al [...]

    A terrific book, even as an adult, but it gave me quite a scare as a little kid See, I actually managed to get scarlet fever in the first grade, and because of The Velveteen Rabbit, I was terrified that someone was going to come in and force me to burn all of my toys like the kid in the book had to when he was sick Thankfully, though, medicine advanced beyond toy burning in between the publishing of this book and 1982, so my G.I Joes were safe.

    First published in 1922, a REAL gem of a classic


    K.D. Absolutely

    The Velveteen Rabbit or How Toys Become Real by Margery Williams Bianco 1881 1944 was originally published in 1922 when she was 41 years old Tonight is my first time to read this book Shame on me It only took 15 mins to read it and at first I was totally not impressed I thought I already saw the theme of previously cherished toys being discarded either in favor of a newer or hi tech toy or when the child becomes an adult used in Disney Pixar s movie Toy Story I also thought I already read about [...]

    What is REAL asked the Rabbit one day Real isn t how you are made, said the Skin Horse.It s a thing that happens to you But these things don t matter at all, because once you are Real you can t be ugly


    Sylvain Reynard

    Some children s books should be read by adults This is one of them It examines the transforming power of love.


    Duane

    Shame on you Toy Story , you knocked off The Velveteen Rabbit and didn t even say thank you Of course this was published in 1922, seventy three years before Toy Story, so most of today s children haven t read this, which is a shame because it s a sweet story, soft and gentle like the little rabbit.

    This is my teddy bear His name is Teddy and I have no recollection of getting him, but he has been with me for over 35 years I can t say that he and I were are as close as the Boy and his Rabbit I have no memories of sleeping with him nor of fervently clutching him when afraid nor of making ersatz bear dens for his comfort but he was always on the periphery of my life Lurking on top of my dresser, carelessly tossed on the bed or today carefully packed away with a few other childhood treasures An [...]

    It doesn t happen all at once You become It takes a long time That s why it doesn t happen often to people who break easily, or have sharp edges, or who have to be carefully kept Generally, by the time you are Real, most of your hair has been loved off, and your eyes drop out and you get loose in your joints and very shabby But these things don t matter at all, because once you are Real, you can t be ugly, except to people who don t understand.

    This book scarred me for goddamned life I still can t get rid of a stuffed animal Do you have any idea how many stuffed animals live in my basement because of this book

    The Velveteen Rabbit is Rabbit Ears first classic story that is based off of Margery Williams popular tale and it is about how a toy rabbit learns the true meaning of being real With Meryl Streep s tender narration, George Winston s soft music and David Jorgensen s beautiful illustrations, The Velveteen Rabbit is an instant classic that children will watch over and over again What made this video truly memorable was Meryl Streep s tender and soothing narration Meryl Streep gives the story a very [...]

    Such a beautiful beautiful story During my second year of teaching, I started taking 30 minutes or so on Fridays to read a children s story to my juniors, and then we d discuss it in the context of a shared letters project that was ongoing through the year It never failed that I would cry every time I read this story the whole concept of being real as it is explained in the book just moves me so much When you are shabby and well worn and your whiskers are rubbed off and your fur is patchy, that [...]

    My favorite book of all time with timeless themes of love and loss If you ve never heard Meryl Streep pitch perfect reading of this book, or seen David Jorgensen s beautiful drawings, you ve never really experienced it properly.

    Emily May

    This is by far my favorite book from childhood My mother read it to me countless times I really can t express what this tiny book means to me It brings me to tears every time I read it It also makes me pull out my own version of a velveteen rabbit, which is a little gray bear that I have had since the day I was born It s funny but when I pull that bear out and hold him in my arms it brings a rush of comfort and a feeling that everything is right This story is a classic that should be read to all [...]

    Didn t everyone read this as a child I sure did and I made my mom read it over and over I saw a post of this today and was like, holy shit I forgot all about this book So here is my small review on such a wonderful children s book 5 stars


    Jon(athan) Nakapalau

    One of the earliest books I can rememberspecial place on my childhood shelf.


    Manybooks

    A simple but profound story of how one small toy velveteen rabbit becomes real through so called nursery magic and because the velveteen rabbit is perceived as being real by the young boy who sleeps with it every night and plays with it every day , but I do have to admit that I am actually than a bit glad I did NOT encounter Margery Williams Bianco s classic as a very young child for I did indeed and very much akin to the Boy have a stuffed rabbit toy that was in many ways exactly the same kind [...]

    I don t think I ve ever read this before and it was ever read to me as a child I don t remember it This is another great book in my search for good reading and stories for my grandchildren.

    I ve lost track of all the times I ve read this wonderful sweet story But my favorite was when I copied and sent the following portion of it to my very REAL mom in a birthday card letter to let her know how much she is loved What is REAL asked the Velveteen Rabbit one day Does it mean having things that buzz inside you and a stick out handle Real isn t how you are made, said the Skin Horse It s a thing that happens to you When someone loves you for a long, long time, not just to play with, but R [...]

    My scanned copy this library edition doesn t have Bianco and it s 44pg long isbn 0385077483 I don t see a copyright date but process date of this book in the library stated 4 1 87 I read one of those Christmas toddler abridged board book version of this book a long time ago and found it to be a darling story I wanted to see the original version so I checked this out from my local library Sweet story Oddly enough, I think I like the abridged version better perhaps due to the illustrations ought o [...]

    Real isn t how you are made, said 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 Does it hurt asked the Rabbit Sometimes, said the Skin Horse, for he was always truthful When you are Real you don t mind being hurt.


    Linda (Miss Greedybooks)

    The Skin Horse had lived longer in the nursery than any of the others He was so old that his brown coat was bald in patches and showed the seams underneath Real isn t how you are made, said 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 Does it hurt asked the Rabbit Sometimes, said the Skin Horse, for he was always truthful When you are Real you don t mind being hurt Beautiful story.


    Hilary

    Beautiful illustrations and a wonderful story about how toys become real when you love them enough, we knew that of course but we suspect some might not realise this so it has a very important message.There are some sad bits and it was hard to read aloud in places, but a happy ending
