The Velveteen Rabbit

The Velveteen Rabbit - I re-read this little book yesterday during my lunch hour. I think that it is an important story with valuable messages for young people, teaching not to be so concerned about appearances.When the little toy Rabbit is loved for a very long while, the boy to whom he belongs thinks of him as real. Later, when the boy has been ill and all of his belongings are to be destroyed because of germ theories of the time, the Nursery Fairy comes and turns the bunny into a real rabbit who plays in the woods. Yet, he still comes from time to time to watch over the little boy who loved him.I find a tear in my eye every time I read this book.
