"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"
"Kids Love this Book"
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.
"Daughter falls asleep to this"
I bought the velveteen rabbit and Riki ticky tavi for my 5 year old to fall asleep to and it works like a charm. She almost always chooses this one because she is afraid of the snake in Riki. James Mio has a relaxing voice. It's a sweet little story. The story works really well as an audio book for her age. I don't fell like we are missing out by not having pictures and it isn't too long for a 5 year old
"Wonderful at any age"
Yes, I will listen to this again because I never read/heard it before.
I enjoyed the whole thing and I can't believe that at 56 I never heard/read it before!
I was glad that it had a good ending. Kids and adults like for good things to happen.
