Very cute little hard book. I got the hard covered with the hard pages due to my toddler being a bit aggressive with her books. So these are durable and great for bedtime stories. I don't have to worry about paper cuts or pages being torn with these type of books. Def recommend.

Little Nutbrown Hare is searching for words to tell his parent how much he loves him:
"This much," said Little Nutbrown Hare, stretching out his arms as wide as they could go.

Big Nutbrown Hare "one-ups" the baby:
Big Nutbrown Hare had even longer arms. "But I love you this much," he said.

The "I love you game" goes on and on, until the little bunny gets sleepy of jumping around. But before dozing off, he finally comes up with the dearest line for his dad: "I love you right up to the moon."

Big Nutbrown Hare settles his baby into the bed of leaves, and, after the bunny is asleep, whispers:
"I love you right up to the moon - and back."

The artwork adds a perfect touch of calmness, employing pen-and-wash method of illustrations done in earthy tones. It's very suitable for the soothing tale before sleep.

"Guess How Much I Love You" is the sweetest book about parent and child openly expressing their affection to each other. It's not a book about being competitive - it's rather about solid affirmation of never-ending parent's love. There is no better way to reinforce "I love you" message, than reading this calming bed-time story. And of course, feel free to reenact this indulging game together!

My 1st son is well beyond the age of getting bedtime stories from Mom, but I was reading this to his little brother the other night and I glanced up and saw him sitting on the floor in the hallway listening.
Later he told me it had been his favorite story when he was little because the end where Big Nutbrown Hare tells him she loves him to "the moon and back" always made me get teary. Thats the kind of book this is, a sweet enduring tale of the all encompassing love a child and parent have for each other.
This book is the most touching testament to this devotion I have ever read..and it STILL makes me tear up at the end.

This is the second book now that I thought was sweet and then I read the 1-star reviews to discover the appalling and corrupted adult interpretation placed on it - that it is a book about competition and that the little nutbrown hare can never 'out love' the big nutbrown hare. A small child doesn't see this as a competition of who loves more, at least not in the way an adult would. A child tries to express his or her love, and any 'trump' or 'one up' by the parent that other reviewers interpret is not felt that way by a child hearing this story but is felt as a solid affirmation of the undying love of a parent. Take the alternative outcome into consideration for a second. A small child, an attached child, always has faith that his parents love him above and beyond anything in this world, that he is the center of their world (a natural state of narcissim) but all of a sudden that child contemplates for a second that he loves his parents more than his parents love him? Let's continue to let our children feel 'out loved' if that is what the negative reviewers would call it! I can't imagine there is anything negative about that! I only give the story 4 stars by the fact that the long drawn out character names can be somewhat of a struggle to repeat over and over after a long day :)

This book is a mouth full to read. Concept is great. But the characters names are Little Nutbrown Hare and Big Nutbrown Hare. And you say it about one hundred times.

i'm not into it. Sandra Boynton books are fun and easy on the tongue.

I bought this book so I can read it to my babies at bed time. As others reviewers have stated, the book is about a mother or fathers love for their child - it has no limits. There are many things that I love about this book. For instance, the story is absolutely beautiful and the illustrations are really adorable. Also, it is the right length. You will be able to finish it, even with a sleepy baby. The pages are hard, which is great because my babies love to put the book in their mouths while I read it. The book is small. I can hold it with one hand while I hold one of my babies with the other one.
By the way, my husband loves to read this book to our sons too!
I also got the jack in the box, or in this case, the hare in the box, and it is really cute.

This is my favorite book to read to my little baby boy. As a father, I find that many of the stories involving parents are told from a mother's perspective (for example, "Where's Spot," which is also a great book). "Guess How Much I Love You" is all about a father expressing his love for his child. I absolutely love it.
