è Read Ê The Velveteen Rabbit by Margery Williams Bianco ✓ This review was written months ago A mix of Christmas, children, family, presents and literature brought it to the surface.
Dec 19, 18After watching another Friends marathon I noticed that The Velveteen Rabbit was mentioned twice First, in a 1997 episode, The One with the Dirty Girl and four years later in The One with the Halloween Party since it was Chandler s favorite childhood book That s not how a geek sounds I wrote on some review that I wasn t particularly fond of rabbits When I read the The Book of Bunny Suicides, I think that was fun I had a couple of them as a kid and kept them at a safe distance Brownish rabbits look innocuous I like the concept of white, fluffy, little creatures until they look at me with those disturbing eyes filled with blood Sinister things happen inside those red pupils And it doesn t get much better wh Shame on you Toy Story , you knocked off The Velveteen Rabbit and didn t even say thank you Of course this was published in 1922, seventy three years before Toy Story, so most of today s children haven t read this, which is a shame because it s a sweet story, soft and gentle like the little rabbit.

Its a children s favorite Thanks Duane for re visiting of memories from when you recently read it How Toys Become Real The Velveteen Rabbit, Margery Williams Bianco, Donna Green Illustrator The Velveteen Rabbit is a British children s book written by Margery Williams and illustrated by William Nicholson The book was first published in 1922 It chronicles the story of a stuffed rabbit s desire to become real through the love of his owner A stuffed rabbit sewn from velveteen is given as a Christmas present to a small boy The boy plays with his other new presents and forgets The Velveteen Rabbit for a time These presents are modern and mechanical, and they snub the old fashioned velveteen rabbit The wisest and oldest toy in the nursery, the Skin Horse, who was owned by the boy s uncle, tells the rabbit about toys magically becoming real du Some children s books should be read by adults This is one of them It examines the transforming power of love.
The Velveteen Rabbit or How Toys Become Real by Margery Williams Bianco 1881 1944 was originally published in 1922 when she was 41 years old Tonight is my first time to read this book Shame on me It only took 15 mins to read it and at first I was totally not impressed I thought I already saw the theme of previously cherished toys being discarded either in favor of a newer or hi tech toy or when the child becomes an adult used in Disney Pixar s movie Toy Story.
I also thought I already read about the realization of growing old or passing of time used poignantly in E B White s Charlotte s Web However, check the years Toy Story 1 was shown in 1995 and Charlotte s Web was first published in 1952 Hence, unless there were other children s books with the same themes earlier tha What is REAL asked the Rabbit one day Real isn t how you are made, said the Skin Horse.
It s a thing that happens to you But these things don t matter at all, because once you are Real you can t be ugly
A terrific book, even as an adult, but it gave me quite a scare as a little kid See, I actually managed to get scarlet fever in the first grade, and because of The Velveteen Rabbit, I was terrified that someone was going to come in and force me to burn all of my toys like the kid in the book had to when he was sick Thankfully, though, medicine advanced beyond toy burning in between the publishing of this book and 1982, so my G.
I Joes were safe.
What a delightful book
