Meryl Streep reads Margery Williams's gentle story of a stuffed bunny who becomes real through the love of a child in this 25-minute video version of the classic 1922 tale. A Christmas gift that is ignored, then beloved, and then abandoned, the rabbit with the pink sateen ears comes to love the boy who takes him everywhere and through that love finds literal rebirth. Meryl Streep doesn't disappoint as she liltingly brings the toy rabbit to life - with the help of the nursery magic fairy. Streep's reading is complemented by George Winston's music and illustrations by David Jorgenson. "The Velveteen Rabbit" received a Grammy nomination in the category of "Best Album for Children". It won a Parents' Choice Award for Favorite Recording and a Silver Plaque by the Chicago International Film Festival.

The Velveteen Rabbit was released both as an audio book and in an animated version on video cassette.
