The Velveteen Rabbit will make you want to cuddle up with your favorite blanket, stick your thumb in your mouth and be a babe again. It tells the warm and cozy story of a stuffed bunny who becomes real through the love of a little boy. The tale is enriched by Meryl Streep's soothing narration, George Winston's lilting piano music and some pretty—though not animated—pictures. If you have children, make them watch so you can see it too. If you don't have children, watch anyway. It'll make your heart melt.
