The Velveteen Rabbit by Margery Williams

Coming to a theater near you...The Velveteen Rabbit!

We're heading to The Grand on Wednesday, December 15! Lunch will be early and then it's the show. You might be hungry when we return to the school after the show so....bring a snack and drink for the afternoon.

A boy receives a Velveteen Rabbit for Christmas. The Velveteen Rabbit is snubbed by other more expensive or mechanical toys, the latter of which fancy themselves real. One day while talking with the Skin Horse, the Rabbit learns that a toy becomes real if its owner really and truly loves it...
