31 Days - 31 Books (day 14)
Day14 - Book from your childhood

Since I have loved most of the books that I read (or had read to me) from my childhood, I decided I'd mix it up a bit and pick a book from my childhood that I dislike. The Velveteen Rabbit by Margery Williams.

See, for me, it was never a story about a toy rabbit that becomes real. No, it was the story of a child who lost his favorite toy due to illness. And I was always afraid I'd get sick and Teeny Tiny Teddy, my most favorite teddy bear (a gift to me on the Christmas the week before I was born) would be taken from me and I'd never see him again. (And what would Teeny do as a real bear? Surely he'd not be 41 years old and still pootling about these days.)

Anyhoo, I never did get sick like the boy in the story and Teeny and I have been firm friends ever since. He used to travel everywhere with me (to college & back, to Chicago, London, etc.) but now he's retired from travel and stays on the pillow next to mine in bed.
