The Velveteen Rabbit

Addie has a new favorite book, The Velveteen Rabbit. She has two different versions and it is not unusual for her to request both of them as her two books before bed. This afternoon as I was reading one to her she started pointing at the different rabbits and saying, "this one is real, that one is a toy." I started to expand the concept beyond pictures and told her, "Pepper and Danu are real kitties. This kitty in your crib is a toy. Charlotte is a real baby, this is a toy baby." Then she started naming off things herself, "This is a toy bunny. This is a toy. That dog is a toy. Tigger is real. Yeah! Tigger is REAL, he really, really is real!!" For those of you who don't know, Tigger is her favorite stuffed animal, for the longest time she couldn't sleep without him. I guess she gets the message of the book.
