Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature
AGERANGE: Ages 5 to 10.

Among the many toys in the nursery, a stuffed, velveteen rabbit becomes the favorite and well-loved companion of a little boy who receives it in his Christmas stocking. During the joyful excitement of Christmas and gifts, the boy casts aside and forgets about the velveteen rabbit. Some time later, the boy rediscovers the velveteen rabbit, and the two reconnect and become inseparable. They share many happy times together in the nursery and in the garden outside until one day the young boy becomes seriously ill. In this timeless classic story, the velveteen rabbit learns the true meaning of what it is to be real. The Velveteen Rabbit is the featured story in this collection of eleven classic folk and fairy tales and is the only story with a few illustrations. Among the others are Little Red Riding Hood, Chicken Little, and The Ugly Duckling. Also, Peter Pan and Pinocchio are presented in a condensed format, highlighting just the major events in the retelling. Included with the book is a plastic replica of the velveteen rabbit on a thin, velvet-like ribbon. Reviewer: Carrie Hane Hung

    FOR ALL OF US WHO HAVE HAD SOME HAIR RUBBED OFF

    I first read this book in an early childhood education books class in college. Along with "The Little Prince" and "Jonathan Livingston Seagull", the message is of tolerance for those who are "different" and a "follow your dream" admonishment. As a 66 year old soon-to-be retiree I will enjoy re-reading this book, and reading it to my grandchildren. One of a number of timeless good reads.
