Guess How Much I Love You

Rabbits are a favorite among children’s books and Guess How Much I Love You is one of the books that has helped people love them even more.  Add in a little love and Sam McBratney has created a book that parents all want to read it to their children, from the very young to kids as old as eight.

Little Nutbrown Hare wanted to show his dad, Big Nutbrown Hare, just how much he loved him.  He stretched out his arms as wide as he could, but was topped by dad when he stretched his longer arms farther.  The two then banter back and forth, stretching out the amount of their love all the way until Little Nutbrown Hare finally falls asleep and dad whispers he loves him all the way to the moon and back.

Not about who has the most love, Guess How Much I Love You instead displays the love between a parent and child, wonderful for bedtimes or any time when parents want to read with their children and throw in a few big hugs or start up their own games to see how much they love each other.  As parents and kids read together, they can enjoy the pen-and-wash artwork by Anita Jeram.  Big Nutbrown Hare towers over his little one, big enough for Little Nutbrown Hare to catch a ride and dangle from ears.  The back cover of Guess How Much I Love You states “love is not an easy thing to measure.”  A perfect summary of what this book is all about.
