Product Description

From Amazon

Little Nutbrown Hare wants very much to impress Big Nutbrown Hare with the enormous scale of his devotion, but ends up being the one who's impressed. Subtitled "a pop-up edition," this sturdy square edition of Sam McBratney's ever-popular Guess How Much I Love You is probably better described as a "slide-along edition." Some pages do include pop-ups, but they aren't the best ones; instead, most involve pull-tabs which animate the two rabbits and their surroundings. One of the most appealing scenes simply shows Little Nutbrown Hare hopping up and down. In a purely technical sense this exercise in interactive cardboard technology is well behind some of the competition, but the tale has a timeless charm and the very simplicity of the movements makes it easy for small fingers to waggle the tabs and take control of the story. (Ages 2 to 4) --Richard Farr --This text refers to the Hardcover edition.

From Publishers Weekly

Fresh as a fiddlehead fern in spring, this beguiling bedtime tale features a pip of a young rabbit and his indulgent parent. Searching for words to tell his dad how much he loves him (and to put off bedtime just an eentsy bit longer), Little Nutbrown Hare comes up with one example after another ("I love you as high as I can hop!"), only to have Big Nutbrown Hare continually up the ante. Finally, on the edge of sleep, he comes up with a showstopper: "I love you right up to the moon." (Dad does top this declaration too, but only after his little bunny falls asleep.) Effused with tenderness, McBratney's wise, endearing and droll story is enriched by the near-monochromatic backdrop of Jeram's pen-and-wash artwork, rendered earthy tones of moss, soft brown and gray for a visually quieting effect just right for that last soothing tale before sleep. Ages 3-up.

This is one of the sweetest books out there. My daughter and I love to read it together. My only compliant is that this book didn't interest my daughter until around her second birthday, I assume because of the lack of color. The illustrations from an adult perspective thought are beautiful, as is the message.

This is a great book. It focuses on the quality time a parent spends with their child and the extent of their love for each other. My parents purchase this book for me when I was in 2nd grade, and I still like this book! The art graphics are great too. The art impacts and reinforces the depth and warmth of compassion shared by the father and the son. Even though this book is for people up to 3rd grade; if every now-and- then you still like to lay your head on your dad's shoulder, or if every blue-moon you still like to rest with your mom's arm wrapped around you; then this is a great book for all ages. In looking at and listening to my parents you never out grow the memories or the need for confimation of your parents love. I like this book because the content leaves you feeling happy and peaceful and definitely cared for. The only sad part was when the son fell asleep before hearing his dad's final words of the evening. But, even that part was cool-beacuse the reader and/or the listener is insured that the father loves his son. This story also could be titled as "A Father and Son Day Out" or "Chillin With Dad"
This is a must read. I recommend this book to parents who love their children and to children who love their parents every where of all ages and nationality.

By Dana on May 20 2004

I bought this book not for a child but for a close friend who is going through a very difficult time in his life. I picked it based on the title alone, because it seemed like it'd have the sort of message I wanted to share with my friend. When I read it, I was delighted by the very simple story of two characters trying to define the size of their love, in a way very much like a game I used to play with my mother. Some people feel that the story is very competitive and I can understand that opinion, but I never felt that way when I played that game with my mother, nor does the book feel competitive to me. To me, the message is simply about love, and the undefinable, unquantifiable nature of it, and the way that no matter what kind of analogy you create for how much you love someone, it's still not big enough.
Besides the message of the story, and soothing illustrations, what really made this book a favorite was the lack of definition for the relationship between the big and little hares. A lot of stories mention in one way or another how the characters are related, and usually they're parent and child. This book makes no mention of how the two characters are related, or even if they are related in any legally-recognized way; you can take it to be whatever you want, whatever fits. Because of that, it's a particularly good fit for our odd mentorship-friendship, or any other nontraditional relationship.

McBratney's tale about a young rabbit, Little Nutbrown Hare who tries to declare his love for his father by using boundaries he can find in the world. However, the young rabbit's father can always outdo Little Nutbrown Hare's declarations with one of his own. Throughout the book both the young rabbit and the father rabbit continually search for the words to describe how much they love one another. Finally, as Little Nutbrown Hare falls asleep he gives one last attempt to outdo his father's declaration of love. Can Little Nutbrown Hare's valiant attempt stump his ever-loving father?
I think this is a sweet and heart warming tale that portrays that love is immeasurable. The book captures the sincerity of both Little Nutbrown hare and Big Nutbrown Hare. I think any adult or child who hears this book would not be able to help but smile.
The illustrator, Anita Jeram uses pen and ink with a watercolor wash to exemplify the heartfelt hares throughout the pages. The soft colors give the reader a serene feel. The illustrator also uses the lines in the book to depict the action of the hares. On pages 3-6 the lines suggest that the hares are pulling, being pulled or stretching their arms high into the sky. Another example of the lines showing motion, is the page where the child hare is hopping around to show his love. The double page spread shows the child hare in different hopping positions. The size of the father hare compared to the child hare is shown in great detail when the father hare reaches into the sky to show his love. They surrounding details seem gigantic to the child hare, yet they seem miniscule to the father hare.

... It is such a sweet, honest story about parent-child love. I really don't believe that the father figure is "winning" or being smug, only saying what's in his heart. And of course it's all in fun. And for those of you that feel sorry for the little guy, remember that he will be big one day too. This is what we ALL go through. :-)
Second, I agree with what some others have said about this book as far as it's appeal. I, myself, love it. But I can't say the same for my little girl.
I bought this for my 22 month daughter on Valentine's Day. She loves books and had just recently gotten to where she could actually stay focused for a story of any length. So I thought this would be fine. The truth is, though, that she lost interest in it right away. It's a very artistic book. With it's very soft-colored, subtle, drawings that nearly seem to get lost in the background, the phrasing and momentum of the story. And, yes, the names "Little" and "Big" "Nutbrown Hare" do stick in my throat as I read.
At this age my daughter really does better with illustrations that stand out and are vivid and colorful. Also rhyming stories are best at this age. As it is now I can usually get to the 2nd or 3rd to last page and she takes off.
I am sure that she will grow into this and that's fine with me. Get this book. Even if your child doesn't like it right away that isn't anything bad to say about the book, give it some time. If nothing else, get it for yourself.
