Format: Hardcover
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.

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!

My daughter and I love reading this together. I won't spoil it by telling you the last line... but it makes my eyes moisten everytime. Beatifully illustrated, it's a gorgeous book about, well, how much you can love someone.

Buy it, and enjoy reading it to your kids.

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

Format: Board book
Guess How Much I Love You is a well-earned recipient of the Abby Award.

This book is very uniquely plotted. Unlike most books for bedtime, the two protagonists are male (apparently father and son, although that is left unstated). And they spend the whole book describing and showing their love for one another. I know of no other book that provides this sort of man-boy modeling about expressing love and appreciation for one another.

Yet at the same time, the "maleness" of the two characters is subdued so that the pair could be very easy to see them as female characters (a mother-daughter pair). Obviously, mixed pairs (mother-son and father-daughter) are even easier to imagine. So everyone can relate to expressing love and receiving expressions of love in return when reading this delightful story.

The other attraction of this story is that the youngster, Little Nutbrown Hare, takes the lead. He wants to describe his love first. Children can start to be reticent about their feelings beginning around age 4, and this book should help overcome that shyness. Fathers of my generation and older have been reticent since that age with everyone, so this book will help a few parents as well to show their feelings.

As for age level, this book should start to appeal at about age 2 1/2 to 3. You will be reading the story to your youngster at that age. In time, with memorization, you will be listening to the story. Later, you child will actually learn to read it to you.

The illustrations are gently subdued, to help create a mood of drowsiness. Nicely done, Ms. Anita Jeram!

The story opens with Little Nutbrown Hare on his way to sleep. He is riding on top of Big Nutbrown Hare, holding onto the larger hare's very long ears.

Format: Hardcover
This book is simple and enchanting and I can't add much to what the other 5 star reviewers have said except that my daughter had it when it was first published and, now 12, insisted we get a copy for her 3 year old brother to keep as she would not hand hers down except for the occasional loan. This makes him very cross as he has had most of her other books.

Like her, he loves to quote it and think of ever more outlandish distances to stretch his love, beyond the moon and back. And we are NOT a demonstrative family (but we do have a lot of soft toys!)

Ignore the cynical reviewer who thinks this is for adults only....I dont know many families who dont have this. His must be a very sad life.

Ok, so it's a short simple story of two cute hares and how they try and articulate how much they love each other.
Sounds soppy? Think this book is just for babies and us girlies?
Wrong on both accounts!

Bought this for my ill partner (middle aged 'roughy toughy' male!!!) and read it to him when he was real poorly. I have never seen anyone smile and brighten up so much in all my life!
What more can I say? It's a 'feel good' book for adults and children alike.
You love someone? Just buy - you'll love it, they'll love, you'll both love it together!
Go on, give it a try!
