I got this for my grandaughters birthday as it is a good wee board book for little hands to read without damaging the pages. Also its a nice book to write a special message in the front that she can keep for when she is older.
The story of Little and Big Nutbrown Hares' efforts to express their love for each other has become a publishing phenomenon, selling more than 18 million copies worldwide. First published over 15 years ago, this lovely new edition is one that children will ask for time and again.
"This is a book which both parents and children adore and will be a book any adult will happily read over and over again at bedtime!" The Guardian
In a heartwarming twist on the "I-can-do-anything-you-can-do-better" theme, Little Nutbrown Hare goes through a series of declarations regarding the breadth of his love for Big Nutbrown Hare. But even when his feelings stretch as long as his arms, or as high as his hops, LittleNutbrown Hare is fondly one-upped by the elder rabbit's more expansive love. Anita Jeram's illustrations are bound to elicit an "ah" from even the sternest of readers; these loving rabbits are expressive, endearing, and never cloying. In turn, Sam McBratney tells a simple bedtime story of sweet familial love with humour, insight, and a delightful surprise at the end. Children and parents will love snuggling up for this one--a treat to be read again and again, just before the lights are turned out.

"…GUESS HOW MUCH I LOVE YOU is the captivating story of two hares - Big Nutbrown Hare and Little Nutbrown Hare, who attempt to outdo each other in their expressions of mutual affection. The illustrations are charming - Anita Jeram has managed to create hares that are endearing but still very hare-like - and the story cleverly deals with the immeasurable depth of love that parents and children can feel for each other. The pictures, which are uncluttered, light, expressive and full of movement, match the poignancy of the text. They are delightful to children and the simple, poetic language lends itself to re-reading." - TIMES EDUCATIONAL SUPPLEMENT
"Little Nutbrown Hare is trying to find an adequate expression of his love for Big Nutbrown Hare - 'as high as I can reach'. But every way he stretches to show him, Big Nutbrown Hare can reach further. At last he thinks he has found it - 'I love you right up to the moon'. Surely nothing could be further than that? A perfect picture book." (2+) (Kirkus UK)
'I love you as high as I can reach…all the way down to my toes…right up to the moon' says Little Nutbrown Hare. But Big Nutbrown Hare can always reach a little bit further, as they try to quantify their feelings for each other. Gorgeous watercolours illustrate this affectionate story. A perfect picture book!" - THE GOOD BOOK GUIDE
"Right up to the moon! This endearing picture book for the very young expresses the heights of love between parent and child - Big Nutbrown Hare and Little Nutbrown Hare. But adults are also giving it to each other and it's a hot tip for Valentine's Day because of its simplicity and charming illustrations by Anita Jeram. Little Nutbrown is a perky and wondering creature while Big Nutbrown is gawky, protective and not so far removed from an endearing and thoroughly charming long-eared kangaroo." - DAILY MAIL
