Published in 1994 in the United Kingdom and 1995 in the United States, Guess How Much I Love You is an extremely popular children’s book written by Sam McBratney. The book was illustrated by Anita Jeram, and has won a large amount of awards. Since its initial publication, it has been published into a total of 37 different languages, with more than 20 million copies sold.
The plot centers around two Nutbrown Hares who appear to be father and son.
The title of the book comes from the question which the little Nutbrown Hare asks the big Nutbrown Hare. The book follows the conversation as the two hares use increasing measures to define their love for one another.
For every increase that the little hare makes in the love he feels for the father, the father has a bigger response. Each example of love begins with the words “I love you…” and is illustrated by a pictorial representation.
This book is certainly a favorite. It's a nice reminder and a great choice for a new family.
