Connections: Children’s Literature, Growing up, Identity

A heart-warming story about a very shy toy rabbit who longs for nothing more than to become real. Rabbit spends the days waiting patiently on the nursery floor, watching the child play with other toys and dreaming of being picked up and loved. Then, one day, Rabbit is rediscovered and all those hopes start to come true…
