Welcome the family classic with an elegant, refreshed cover — the quintessential picture book, just waiting to be shared.
Sometimes, when you love someone very, very much, you want to find a way of describing how much you treasure them
. But, as Little Nutbrown Hare and Big Nutbrown Hare discover, love is not an easy thing to measure! For two decades, Sam McBratney’s timelessly endearing story, beautifully rendered in Anita Jeram’s exquisite watercolors, has captured the deep and tender bond between parent and child.
Guess How Much I Love You is one of the world’s best-loved picture books.
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.
A well-written gem with sprightly illustrations.
An extraordinary children’s book that captures the unique dialogue between a parent and child.
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.
