Easter Gift Idea! The Velveteen Rabbit Paperback Edition Just $3 @ Amazon.ca
Though the classic children's story The Velveteen Rabbit (originally published in 1922!) is traditionally a Christmas tale, this story of a toy rabbit given to a little boy as a Christmas gift is also a perfect book for Easter when bunnies, toys or otherwise, are so very top of mind!
My 8-year-old loves this beautiful story, she and I have read it countless times and both of us get a little teary with each and every reading. This is a story about the power of love and friendship, a message that's wonderful to share with your kids all year round, but especially fitting at Easter time. Think of it as way to share something that's a little more heartwarming than chocolate eggs! (But whatever you do, DO NOT forget the chocolate eggs!)
This year I'm giving copies to several kids in my family as part of their Easter treat baskets. Now available at Amazon.ca for 77% off, these books are selling fast, but it seems that more are on the way and you can still get them by March 23 if you order quickly! Order a bunch or add to another order to get free shipping for orders over $25 (or free for Amazon Prime).
