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.
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.
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.Read more ›
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.
