The Velveteen Rabbit–Margery Williams




Thomas was given this book yesterday by my cousin she was getting rid of some of her baby books and decided she wanted to give them to Thomas and one of the books she gave him was The Velveteen Rabbit, now if you have watched friends in the past you will have heard it mentioned when Chandler bought it for one of Joey’s girlfriends and ever since then I had been curious to read it.

So a couple of nights ago it was my bedtime reading. It’s a cute story of a rabbit that was bought for a little boy at Christmas and he loved it for a couple of hours until he had bigger and what he thought were better presents, the rabbit soon got forgotten about and he waits around until the day the little boy choses him to play with again. The rabbit soon meets a little horse who begins to tell him how toys can become real. It’s not how toys are made that make them real it happens when toys are loved for a long time.

This book is such a sweet, beautifully written story with so many beautiful lines in it. I can’t wait to read it to Thomas when he is older. It is definitely a book I would recommend you buying and reading to your little one. Or even just get it so that you can read it yourself because as a grown up it was a lovely book that I enjoyed to read and it put a smile on my face.
