The Velveteen Rabbit with Annotations

The Velveteen Rabbit with Annotations

This beautiful story written in 1922 by Margery Williams is almost 100 years old and about a time in history before there was antibiotic treatment for scarlet fever, a potentially fatal childhood disease. It's a story not only about survival, but resilience, change, love, and fairy magic.  Read and annotated by Marlene Wurfel Licences and Attributions:The Velveteen Rabbit by Margery Williams (1922) is part of the public domain   Music:Gymnopedie No.1 by Kevin MacLeod Meditation Impromptu No.2 by Kevin MacLeod and Heartbreaking by Kevin MacLeodunder a Creative Commons Attribution license via the YouTube Audio Library ( Source: Artist: Birdsong sample by juskiddink on via a creative commons license & Fantasy Windchimes by Northern87 on
