Margery Williams' classic children's book, "The Velveteen Rabbit," has been charming children since its first publication in 1922.
In it, the shy rabbit learns the goal of all nursery toys: to be made "real" through the love of a human. "Real isn't how you are made," his friend, the Skin Horse, tells him, "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."
An upcoming library program will make the rabbit's story real through music.
Tunes & Tales featuring "The Velveteen Rabbit" is a new orchestra work performed by the Westerville Symphony at Otterbein University. The piece will be performed on Saturday, May 7 at 3 pm in Old Worthington Library's fireplace area.
