McBratney, Sam "Guess How Much I Love You"

McBratney, Sam "Guess How Much I Love You" - 1994

Another beautiful book to share with the little ones that is as beautiful for them as for us. A beautiful bedtime story where the child can interact, can pretend to be Little Nutbrown Hare who loves Big Nutbrown Hare to the moon and back.

And we can love this book to the moon and beyond. The illustrations are beautiful, the language is simple but catching. Perfect.

From the back cover:

"'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."


  1. One of my nieces always talks about loving someone to the moon and back. She reads a lot to her girls. Maybe she got that saying from this book.

    1. Maybe. But I believe it is used a lot anyway, though that could be only in England. LOL
