5.0 out of 5 stars If ever there was a book that deserves 5 stars 5 Mar 2008
By Gisli Jokull Gislason VINE VOICE
First let me tell you I am a father of 2 children. Secondly let me tell you that I am a police officer in his forties. Then let me tell you that the book still brings tears to my eyes when I read it (or in fact write this review).

I must confess that beautiful with a little sad does the trick and this book is one of the best childrens books ever written. It tells the story of the little Nut Brown Hare that is being put to sleep by the Big Nut Brown Hare and how the Little Nut Brown Hare is trying to express his/her love for the Big Nut Brown Hare, he/she loves him/her as much as he/she can streach his/her arms, jump high, run fast (there is no gender in the book, so it can be daughter/father, son/mother, big sister/little brother or any other combination) and yet the Big Nut Brown Hare always outdoes the Little Brown Hare by streaching further, jumping higher or running faster. But the end has a twist - such a sweet twist.

There is a lot of love in the book and children relate very well with it and understand the dilemma of the Little Brown Hare who is bursting to express his/her love for the Big Brown Hare. Both parent and child will feel a little more affectionate during and after the read.

The book is so simple in concept and perfect in execution. The pictures and story combine very well.

The book is perfect and worth every star.

5.0 out of 5 stars Most beautiful children's book! 2 Dec 2004
This is the most gorgeous and loving book I have ever read! If you have children, then this is one of the most beautiful ways you can tell them how much you love them. Even grown up children will appreciate this as a gift from a loving parent! This is also a gentle way to tell friends or partners how much you love them. Its not too soppy and is such a well written book. Many thanks to the author!

5.0 out of 5 stars Guess How Much I Love Guess How Much I Love You 24 Nov 2003
By "bylco"
Format:Board book
This is a beautiful childrens books. A very simple story with beautiful, heart-warming illustrations.
What is particularly nice about this book is that the love is being expressed between 2 male hares. It is never explained whether they are two brothers, father and son, uncle nephew or just dependent friends. For me, this shows that love transcends boy-girl, parent-child relationships... but instead illustrates that when love "is" it just "is". It doesn't need to be explained or to be measured by other people's values.... unconditional, beautiful love is just that... beautiful!!

3.0 out of 5 stars Great things come in small packages 21 May 2011
I bought this book to go with a picture frame that I've had engraved for my sons 1st Birthday (it says, 'love you to the moon'). I like to buy special books from my childhood and think this is just the most perfect story. I never fail to squeeze out a tear when I get to the end.

I couldn't recommend the story and illustrations enough. However... This edition is absolutely tiny. As in, you won't believe it until you see it. Let's be honest though, it's says it all in the description 'little favourites'. I prefer to get hard backs as my boy likes to eat his books but there won't be much to go at with this.

This item is great for popping in a sleep over bag and carrying about on outings but I definitely think I'll be buying a bigger edition for our special collection.

I bought this for my two year old grandson, who now wants stories instead of picture books, he seemed to enjoy the story and loved the pictures of the hares. Good meaning within the story. I would recommend this book
