  • “The beloved tale of the stuffed bunny who becomes real.”

    Publishers Weekly

  • “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… In this timeless classic story, the velveteen rabbit learns the true meaning of what it is to be real.”

    Children’s Literature

  • “Though the fanciful story…continues to resonate in recounting that ever-occurring incidence of a child's beloved toy that is finally abandoned.”

    School Library Journal

  • “Williams’ 1922 classic remains a read-aloud standard thanks to the way big themes of life, death, and change weave through its seemingly small and largely familiar domestic events.”

    " With all the warmth and magic of the original, this specially abridged adaptation tells the classic story of a toy rabbit's longing to become real. I like this story because it bring a sense of imagination to the reader to be able to predict what happens next. "

    " I know this is a children's book, but it was free on Kindle so I downloaded it to read to my son last week. I remember reading it as a child, but forgot what a truly heartwarming and sweet story this is. I'll admit there were a few tears at the end of it. Now that I'm a mom there is something especially touching in the story of a sweet toy rabbit who just wants to be loved by the little boy and be made real. "
