Books have always been of great importance to me. In the classroom, I encouraged the students to find books that were interesting to them. One way of doing this was to read to the class daily from a book that had relevance to what we might be studying, or one that might be suitable for the season.
One of my favorites that I would read as this season began was The Velveteen Rabbit. This was one of my favorite stories, and I have a favorite version I would like to share with you today.
|This one is illustrated by Tien.|
You are probably familiar with the story. It begins with a gift at Christmas.
|The velveteen rabbit was in the boy's stocking.|
|The rabbit became "real" in the story.|
