The Velveteen Rabbit
The Velveteen Rabbit - Margery Williams,William Nicholson

The Velveteen Rabbit written by Margery Williams is a 4.7 on the Accelerated Reading leveling system. The book is about a stuffed rabbit that loves his boy. One day the boy gets sick and must throw out the stuffed bunny because it carries germs. This makes the rabbit sad. However, the rabbit soon turns into a real bunny and gets to live a new life in the forest next to the boy's house. This is a perfect book for young children as a read aloud for the beginning of school. It demonstrates that growing up is inevitable, but it is also very exciting.

The Velveteen Rabbit - Margery Williams,William Nicholson

This story is actually one of my all-time favorites. It is the story of love and friendship and something that children can really relate to at a young age. Many students in the younger grades will have a stuffed animal or a significant item in their life that they feel means everything to them. I would use this in any grade K through 4 common but for my first graders I would have them write a story about their own Velveteen Rabbit.

About The Velveteen Rabbit
The Velveteen Rabbit - Margery Williams,William Nicholson

For me, this book is a MUST HAVE! I have to have this book in my classroom and in my life simply because it is my all time favorite! To me, this book just epitomizes childhood as well as the transition from childhood into adulthood. I do not have any specific ideas on how to use it in my classroom other than the following:

1. I WILL use it for a read aloud no matter what grade I am teaching (ages 0-100+), and

2. It WILL be in my classroom library!

The Velveteen Rabbit, Or, How Toys Become Real
The Velveteen Rabbit, Or, How Toys Become Real - Margery Williams,Michael Green I love this story, there are books that I read earlier and more often, there are books that are more nuanced and with better depth, but I love this book.

On helping my sister clear out some items for the dump and recycling center I found this book at the bottom of a box. I hadn't seen it in years or, honestly, much thought about it. I couldn't let it go. The cover on this edition is felted and the pages heavy vellum. Twenty years and much use has made it soft and a pleasure to hold. I remembered every illustration down to the cross-eyed nursery-magic fairy.

The Velvet Rabbit is a sentimental story, but I don't feel that Margery Williams was self-indulgent or overbearing in her message. As an adult I enjoyed the references to the modern talk of the wind-up toys and the political pretensions of Timothy the jointed lion. The theme is a simple one that on some level we can all relate to, and I had a hard time controlling myself while tracing the Skin Horse's wisdom. It's beautifully done.

My beef with it: So, out of all the toys that are meant to be burned because of the boy’s illness, the fairy only saves the bunny. She lets the Skin Horse burn. And the wooden lion. And the china dog (okay, it’s hard to say if that would actually burn). But she saves the rabbit. And it’s because…because…I don’t know…bunnies are better than horses?
