See this classic story brought to life! The Velveteen Rabbit is a story of a young boy that recieves a rabbit toy for Christmas. One day, the boy comes down with scarlet fever, and the rabbit sits with him as he recovers. The doctor orders that his room should be disinfected-all his books and boys burnt, including the velveteen rabbit. The rabbit is bundled into a sack and left out overnight, where he sadly reflects on his life with his boy. The toy rabbit cries, a real tear drops onto the ground, and a magic fairy appears. She says that, because he has become Real to the boy who truly loves him, she will turn the rabbit into Real to everyone. The next spring, the rabbit returns and the boy sees a resemblance to his old velveteen rabbit.
