A dated, gentle story

This is a classic which is starting to show its age, rather like the worn velveteen rabbit himself. A very gentle story with bags of imagination about the secret life of toys, suitable for young children (though some references might need to be explained). Samuel West, as always, does a wonderful job with his skilful and emotive narration. The story itself lasts for 28 minutes, including the frequent over-loud but pleasant musical intervals.

The remainder is a reading of the modern addendum from a printed version of the book, including discussion of the original 1922 drawings which are presumably included in the picturebook version. So this second section isn't so successful - though it does include a rather delightful song about old toys sung by the talented West.

Great story, great narrator!

What was one of the most memorable moments of The Velveteen Rabbit?

My daughter liked when the hair horse told the Velveteen Rabbit that he is real.

What does Samuel West bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

He was a good emotive reader.
