How many of you have this book in your collection? Chances are, quite a few of you because it’s an absolute classic and one of my favourites to read to Raife.
Guess How Much I Love You follows the tale of Little Nutbrown Hare and Big Nutbrown Hare as they compare how much they love each other. Little Nutbrown Hare says that he loves his father this much (by stretching out his arms) but of course, with longer arms, his father says that he loves him even more!
This goes on, from how high they both can hop, to how tall they both are and the distance to the moon and back. It’s such a cute story as they both discover that measuring love is not an easy thing to do.
I purchased this book when Raife was a few weeks old, because one of my favourite things to do with him is to read a story. He loves the sound of my voice and I feel that he’s soothed during storytime. I decided against buying the hardback copy (don’t ask me why when there’s a child around!) but fortunately, we were given a hard copy of the book by our cousin, so all is well!
This book always brings a little tear to my eye – it’s so true that until you’re a parent, you’ll never know how much love you have for a miniature version of yourself. You really do love them to the moon and back!
The illustrations are stunning and perfectly captures the story of love between both hares (my favourite page is when Big Nutbrown Hare is holding Little Nutbrown Hare in front of the moon). It’s so easy to see how over 35 million copies of this book has been sold – I know I’m going to be keeping a copy forever.
Guess How Much I Love You is an absolute classic – a must-have in every child’s book collection. You can also buy so much more products too – including booties, blankets and cuddly toys.
Score – 5 out of 5
