How Toys Become Real "What is REAL?" asked the rabbit. "Real isn't how you are made," said the skin Horse. "When a child loves you for a long, long, time, not just to play with, but REALLY loves you, then you become Real."
By the time the Velveteen Rabbit is dirty, worn out, and about to be burned, he has almost given up hope of ever finding the magic called Real.
Like the wise Skin Horse in the nursery, Margery Williams understood how toys--and people--become real through the wisdom and experience of love. This reissue of a favorite classic, with the original story and illustrations as they first appeared in 1922, will work magic for all who read it. A profound parable about the hope of transformation. Age 3-7.
