39 - The Velveteen Rabbit
This 1922 classic is beloved of children and adults for its positive message and endearing story. When a velveteen rabbit is given to a young boy, readers embark on a journey of discovering the power of love to make things real. From the book: “By the time you are Real, most of your hair has been loved off, and your eyes drop out and you get loose in the joints and very shabby. But these things don't matter at all, because once you are Real you can't be ugly, except to people who don't understand."
