"Guess how much I love you," says Little Nutbrown Hare. Little Nutbrown Hare shows his daddy how much he loves him: as wide as he can reach and as far as he can hop. But Big Nutbrown Hare, who can reach farther and hop higher, loves him back just as much. Well then Little Nutbrown Hare loves him right up to the moon, but that's just halfway to Big Nutbrown Hare's love for him.
About the Author
Sam McBratney wrote GUESS HOW MUCH I LOVE YOU as the fifty-seventh book of his career. He reunited with Anita Jeram for YOU'RE ALL MY FAVORITES and the GUESS HOW MUCH I LOVE YOU Storybooks. He lives in Northern Ireland. Anita Jeram is the illustrator of GUESS HOW MUCH I LOVE YOU, the GUESS HOW MUCH I LOVE YOU Storybooks, and YOU'RE ALL MY FAVORITES, as well as Amy Hest's series about Sam and Mrs. Bearand Dick King-Smith's ALL PIGS ARE BEAUTIFUL and I LOVE GUINEA PIGS. She lives in Northern Ireland.
He wrote it in 1994 but Sam McBratney's GUESS HOW MUCH I LOVE YOU is already a classic, celebrating, the Irish author told us, "that intimacy between a big one and a wee one." We adore the new padded board book.--American Baby
PreS-Gr 1-McBratney continues to mine and model the positive parent/child communication that he presented so successfully in Guess How Much I Love You (Candlewick, 1995). In four brief stories, he describes Little Nutbrown Hare's feelings and behavior as he explores the forest and fields. In the first tale, his favorite Hiding Tree has fallen during a storm. At first formidable in its new position, the tree proves irresistible during a game of hide-and-seek, and the youngster summons the courage to climb. A touch of anxiety surfaces again on Cloudy Mountain when not having heeded Big Nutbrown Hare's warning, he loses his bearings in the mist. Luckily Big Nutbrown Hare is nearby and doesn't contradict the small rabbit who exclaims, "You nearly got lost!" In the third story, the youngster is tempted to disobey but ultimately finds his inner voice as he recalls Big Nutbrown Hare's admonitions. The final chapter features a guessing game with a loving bedtime exchange. In each episode, the adult maintains the tricky balance between offering protection and freedom; the child starts to develop a sense of when it is appropriate to take risks as he remembers the consequences of previous decisions. The familiar halcyon watercolor-and-ink scenes, this time executed by Wagner and Tarbett "in the style of Anita Jeram," provide a good match for the gentle humor that pervades the dialogue. With a larger trim size and bright, white backgrounds, this book is sure to attract new fans to the popular series.-Wendy Lukehart, Washington DC Public Library (c) Copyright 2012.
