Publisher's Summary

"When a child loves you for a long, long time, not just to play with, but really loves you, then you become real."

First published in 1922, Margery Williams' enchanting story about a toy rabbit is a classic of children's literature. This gentle rendition comes alive through Meryl Streep's soothing narration and George Winston's beautiful music score. Ages four and up.

Enchanting story

Where does The Velveteen Rabbit rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

It's good and could of been great but sometimes the music almost drowned out the narration. I wish that the music was a little lower or Miss. Streep had read a little bit louder.

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

When the Velveteen Rabbit was told by the skin horse what it was like to become real from nursery magic.

Which character – as performed by Meryl Streep – was your favorite?

The Velveteen Rabbit

Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

It made me sad when the rabbit was about to be burned.

Any additional comments?

Really good book by rabbit ears. I look forward to more.

Timeless Classic!

One of my favorite stories given even more warmth and richness through Meryl Streep's voice and character voices. Stunning story of love and redemption for all ages.

Lovely endearing story

A lovely endearing story with supreme narration. The background music is often to loud and overcomes the narration.

The music is distracting

What did you like best about The Velveteen Rabbit? What did you like least?

This was a great rendition of the Velveteen Rabbit, with the exception of the music playing over Meryl Streep's voice in some parts.

Sound could have been better

I love this story and wanted my kids to hear it, but I feel like the music was louder than the narrator. The Sounds could have been balanced a little better.

Turn the music down!

Unfortunately, Meryl Streep is completely drowned out by loud and distracting music throughout the entire story.

Great story

My daughter loves this story. Meetl Streep's voice is soothing to put on for bed time for bedtime. I am sure we will listen to it 1,000 times.

Magical

These productions are wonderful for you and your children. I owned several of these when they came out in the 90's my daughters loved this story especially. the narration is wonderful to experience.
