Kids Love this Book

Where does The Velveteen Rabbit rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

I listened to this with my 6 year old in the car, and she was completely engaged in the story, and was asking for more when it was over. Great listen for a short family drive.

A beautiful story

One that I remember from childhood. My 3yo niece says her favorite part is "when the boy loved the bunny."

The narrator makes this story come alive

I’ve always liked this book as a child, but now as an adult, listening to it with my child, I am in LOVE with it. My favorite narrator for the story so far. Definitely recommend this version!

Early Childhood

This book brought back so many fond memories of my teddy bear that my father gave me when I was in a hospital at five years of age. That was 60 years ago. My little brown teddy bear became Real. I still have my teddy bear and my father has been in Heaven for three years. I love you Dad ❤️

Moving story about what it means to be loved ❤

"What is real?" asked the rabbit to the rocking horse. "does it mean having things that buzz inside you and a stick out handle?"
"Real isn't how your made" said the rocking horse "it's a thing that happens to you when a child loves you for a long long time. Not just to play with but really loves you. Then you become real."
"Does it hurt?" asked the rabbit.
"Sometimes" said the rocking horse because he was always truthful. "when you are real, you don't mind being hurt".... "generally by the time you are real most of your hair has been loved off and your eyes drop out and you get very loose in the joints and very shabby but these thing don't matter at all because once you are real you can't be ugly except to people that don't understand"
