From Beautiful Joe to The Velveteen Rabbit to Winnie-the-Pooh, they are our childhood comforters, the animals that console us. Be they real-life, toy, or imagined, these are creatures dear to our hearts long after childhood has been put aside. The Osborne Collection of Early Children's Books has prepared an exhibit that explores the many kinds of animals we call friends.
