She likes these books as much as the original. Each one is set in a different season, and has the little nutbrown hare learning something new from his dad.
One of the things I love about this series is that it is very Dad oriented. As a single father, I know that it is hard to find books that are primarily about kids interacting with dad. Most books are very much about mothers. So its a perfect set of books for dads to read to their kids.
One thing to be aware of with this set though is the size. These are very small books. They are not kidding when they call it "Little Library". The books are only a few inches wide. So the text and pictures are quite small on the page. But honestly, for the price, its a good deal. They are a good size for small hands to hold onto.
And they come in a little box to store them in.

"Let's Play in the Snow" (winter) - Big Nutbrown Hare and Little Nutbrown Hare are playing I Spy. They take turns trying to outsmart each other, until Big Nutbrown Hare thinks of a really difficult riddle. He spies something little, nutbrown, that can hop and is his very favorite thing. Can you guess what it is?
"When I'm Big" (spring) - Big Nutbrown Hare and Little Nutbrown Hare are going for a walk. It is spring time and life is growing and transforming all around. Big Nutbrown Hare explains to his son that an acorn is going to grow into a big tree, a tadpole into a hopping frog and so on, until Little Nutbrown Hare starts wondering what *he* is going to turn into..
"Colors Everywhere" (summer) - This one is a nice twist on the usual baby book about colors. Big Nutbrown Hare and Little Nutbrown Hare observe nature around them and ask each other what shade of each color they like best. What is the best blue? Big Nutbrown Hare likes the blue of the sky. The best green? There are so many of them, but Little Nutbrown Hare likes some big leaves best of all. Each page has several examples of each color in nicely detailed pictures. In the end Little Nutbrown Hare wants to know which brown his dad likes best and of course the answer is.. nutbrown!
"A Surprise for the Nutbrown Hares" (fall) - Little Nutbrown Hare finds a big cardboard box and pretends to be a box monster. Big Nutbrown Hare plays along, until it is his turn to chase Little Nutbrown Hare and catch him. My kids are delighted by this one, because it reminds them of how their own dad plays with them.
I don't know how many times I have read these little books to my children already, but every time they giggle with delight. I think it is because the message is always the same: Big Nutbrown Hare loves his Little Nutbrown Hare more than anything else in the world. The kids like to hear this again and again because they know they are supposed to identify with the little hare and it makes them feel special. And we don't mind reading this again and again, because it is a way to tell them again and again how much we love them.
Update: It's now two years after purchase and we still read these books and love them. My daughter has inherited them, although my son still enjoys them too. I had to add a star for that!
