What is Real? This timeless question receives a gentle answer at the hands of Margery Williams, whose Velveteen Rabbit has been a children's favorite since 1922. Through the advice of a Skin Horse, the magic of a Nursery Fairy and the love of a Boy, the Velveteen Rabbit comes to understand how sacrificial love can transform relationships, and even reality itself. Williams also invites discussion of themes such as loyalty, patience and life after death. Lit teachers looking for object lessons and examples of literary devices will find onomatopoeia, personification and symbolism in abundance. Though written for readers as young as seven or eight, this story's themes will stand up to profound discussions among students of any age. Our teacher guide includes questions on Plot, Characters, Theme, Setting, Conflict, Context and more, and also includes a completed story chart.
