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.|

I remember our fourth grade teacher reading a book to us on a daily basis. It was a fascinating experience.
I like your approach. Your students are lucky.
Great illustrations with this wonderful book! Our 2 year old grandson loves to be read to, but he's a little young for this. This will be perfect for him later!ReplyDelete
I have a copy somewhere from the 1980s, but different from yours. It was a favorite to read to my children when they where young.ReplyDelete
