The Velveteen Rabbit

The Velveteen Rabbit

When our angel Emily was a little girl she loved The Velveteen Rabbit and I think she always knew instinctively the underlying lesson of the story, that love makes us real. Though we only got thirty two wonderful years with her, my daughter really made those years count for all who were privileged to get to share even a few minutes of them with her.

I suppose The Velveteen Rabbit will always be one of the most special children’s books to me because it appealed so to Emily. I hope my reading of it will introduces it to some new folks who may not know it yet and that for those who do already that hearing it again will be like meeting an old friend again and bring a smile and maybe a grateful tear or two.

This recording is one of my longer ones as I usually break the longer children’s books into recorded chapters so they will be easier for readers, parents, grandparents, and children. But, this story, I think, is best told in one sitting, on perhaps a long rainy or wintery day or on an evening when the child seems to be a little more restless and less ready for bed than usual and you know you would hear that plaintive cry more than once, “Another one, pleaseeee!”

Sweet dreams, Dear Ones, day and nighttime. Be safe, be real, love, and be loved.

Your friend and fellow traveler,
