"This sentimental classic - perfect for any child who's ever thought that maybe, just maybe, his or her toys have feelings - has been charming children since its first publication in 1922. A great read-aloud for all ages." (Amazon.com review)
This was my first experience with an audio book from Audible.com, and I must say- this was a delight!
I loved the whole story, the best part has to be when he is conversing with the Skin Horse about what it means to "Be Real"
Every time I read or listen to this book it makes me cry like a baby :)
Nothing special here. Just one who once was, and is now again, an avid reader!
Memories, love, imagination
The little bunny, of course! Everyone, children, adults, and even stuffed animals, want to be loved.
She brought the story to life, as if I were reading it.
The little bunny atop the garbage pile to be burned. He was battered and alone and almost destroyed. Tea- jerker time! How many of us loved our toys as kids and then grew up, the toys forgotten? I still remember mine, and they were real to me.
Good story for all ages.
"High Speed Dubbing!"
The Velveteen Rabbit is a beautiful classic, sadly not done justice by the narrator.
I would have preferred a slow and soothing voice and unfortunately Gale Van Cott's style came across rushed and lacking effective pauses and rise and fall of tone.
