Review:
The beloved story of Margery William’s The Velveteen Rabbit has never lost its popularity. With delivery that is true and full of life, Kathryn Popham treats listeners to her tender rendition of this classic story. Listener young and old will rarely tire of hearing this tale.

“What is REAL?” asked the Rabbit one day, when they were lying side by side near the nursery fender, before Nana came to tidy the room. “Does it mean having things that buzz inside you and a stick-out handle?” “Real isn't how you are made,” said the Skin Horse. “It's a thing that happens to you. When a child loves you for a long, long time, not just to play with, but REALLY loves you, then you become Real.”

Popham’s six original songs are interspersed between the story segments and repeated after the story’s conclusion.
