The Velveteen Rabbit illustration will appear here.

This is an adorable story about a stuffed toy rabbit who was a Christmas gift to a young boy. The bunny lives in the boy's nurservy with all the other toys, waiting for the day when the boy will choose him as a playmate. In the end the bunny gets quite a surprise.

I enjoyed reading this story and my favorite part is when the rabbit's friend the Skin Horse tells him, "Real isn't how you are made, it's a thing that happens to you." Also, the illustrations seem to come to life.

This book is for any reader at any age. If you have a dream, believe in it, work towards it and live it. Read it and find out for yourself.
