The Velveteen Rabbit and a lesson in reality

From the February 17, 2014 issue of the Christian Science Sentinel

While leafing through the much-loved children’s book The Velveteen Rabbit, I came across part of the story where the main character, a stuffed rabbit, asks another nursery toy, the Skin Horse, about being real. The horse tells the rabbit that becoming real is something that happens to you after a child loves you for a long, long time.
