Description


Guess How Much I Love You has sold over 43 million copies worldwide!

A beloved classic lets children "love you right up to the moon — and back."


"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.

Praise For…


Effused with tenderness, McBratney's wise, endearing, and droll story is enriched by the near-monochromatic backdrop of Jeram's pen-and-wash artwork, rendered earthy tones of moss, soft brown, and gray for a visually quieting effect just right for that last soothing tale before sleep.
—Publishers Weekly (starred review)

An endearing nursery game is beautifully revitalized in this comforting, sleepy-time picture book. . . . There's not a wrong note in this tender tale, which should become an endearing bedtime favorite — right up there with Goodnight Moon.
—Booklist (starred review)

Every parent will relate.
—USA Today

A well-written gem with sprightly illustrations.
—L.A. Parent

An extraordinary children's book that captures the unique dialogue between a parent and child.
—Child Magazine

The perfect bedtime story for sleepy little ones. Sam McBratney's soft, repetitive text is reminiscent of classic tales by Margaret Wise Brown (Goodnight Moon, The Runaway Bunny). . . . Anita Jeram's watercolor renderings of this endearing pair add sweet humor to a finely crafted book.
