songs by Christine White
“When a child loves you for a long, long time, not just to play with, but really loves you, then you become Real.”
The enchanting story of a toy rabbit that dearly wishes to become real. First joyously discovered by a young boy at the top of his Christmas stocking, the velveteen rabbit is soon forgotten amongst all the other toys. He waits on the bedroom floor in the hope to become loved by the boy once more.
Then, one night the boy’s favourite cuddly toy is lost and the velveteen rabbit becomes the boy’s favourite companion. And his journey to become real begins.
“By the time you are Real, most of your hair has been loved off and you have become very shabby.”
Based on the timeless book by Margery Williams first published in 1923. In a 2007 online poll, the National Education Association in the US named the book one of its “Teachers’ Top 100 Books for Children.”
