For over 15 years this memorable picture book about a father and son’s efforts to measure how much they love each other has enchanted children and adults the world over.
Always ready to play and laugh, Little Nutbrown Hare bounds through his days with a twitching curiosity. The ever patient Big Nutbrown Hare lovingly leads his son on journeys of discovery about the joys that nature holds. Inquisitive Little Field Mouse and mischievous Little Grey Squirrel often join them on adventures and not too far away they might encounter clever Little Redwood Fox, or Little White Owl with her tall tales of mystery and magic. Together they explore the meadows, forests and streams, playing, laughing, and discovering the wonder that the world holds.
Guess How Much I Love You- The Adventures of Little Nutbrown Hare keeps love as the major theme and each adventure in the series has a particular season as its backdrop, the wildflowers of Spring, the long, lazy days of Summer, the brilliant colours of Autumn or the frozen landscape of Winter.
