KiddieLit - The Velveteen Rabbit

I remember when Hannah received a 'personalised' book of 'The Velveteen Rabbit' - you know the ones where they subsitute the main characters' names for the child's name! She loved it so much because her 'Bun' was the Velveteen Rabbit and the converstations between the horse and the rabbit were paramount. Bun has had complete body make-overs by Grandma to keep him in one piece - AND now aged 14yrs, he has no arms - but nonetheless he is still loved as much! This is one of my favourite photos of Hannah (3) and Bun. You can find the challenge here
