The Velveteen Rabbit

By Marger Williams Bianco

Nursery magic is very strange and wonderful, and only those playthings that are old and wise and experienced like the Skin Horse understood all about it.

This is one of those classic children's stories that I remember very clearly the first time I heard it as a kid. The magic of a much-loved toy yearning to become 'real' is a story any child can latch onto and instantly feel the magic permeating the story. Even now, reading it as an adult I found myself smiling and getting all nostalgic. Great classic kids story.

I give it a 4 1/4 out of 5 for its magic.
