In case you never noticed — there is a section on our blog called ‘things we like‘ and within here we have begun to compile a list of ‘books we like‘. To start the list out right I am first adding a classic tale, The Velveteen Rabbit, written by Margery Williams. This is by far one of my favourite children’s books and when my daughter Hannah was small it was one of her favourites as well. The tale’s main theme is redemption and it speaks to one’s heart because no one ever wants to grow old and be discarded.
I did this 2′x2′ – acrylic on canvas painting years ago for my daughter’s third birthday. Although my painting hardly rivals the vintage charm of illustrator, William Nicholson’s originals it was still fun to paint!
