Helpful Score: 8
I'm one of the people who reads this story and cringes - it is a story about making love into a competition which the child can never win.
There are over a dozen reviewers over at Amazon who also had this reaction to the book - while, as evidenced here, there are many more who love the book.
I'm always surprised that people don't have more empathy for the child in the story - and feel his defeat as he becomes exhausted trying to tell his parent how much he loves them, never to have the sentiment accepted - only outdone.
I honestly can't imagine a way in which this would be a positive story.

Whenever I read this book to my kids I cried! That last line, "I love you right up to the moon - and back." gets me every time.

All children want reassurance that their parents' love runs wide and deep. In Guess How Much I Love You, a young rabbit named Little Nutbrown Hare thinks he's found a way to measure the boundaries of love. In a heartwarming twist on the "I-can-do-anything-you-can-do-better" theme, Little Nutbrown Hare goes through a series of declarations regarding the breadth of his love for Big Nutbrown Hare. But even when his feelings stretch as long as his arms, or as high as his hops, Little Nutbrown Hare is fondly one-upped by the elder rabbit's more expansive love.

I found this to be a sweet book with a message that a child will find reassuring. The parent is essentially saying, "I love you more than you can possibly imagine." The illustrations are done in warm, soothing colors. Great bedtime book.

The text is simple and sweet - perfect for a quick read with my 2yr old. And he loves imitating the baby bunny's movements. Also, the artwork is beautiful and wonderful for this age group.

Little Nutbrown Hare loves Big Nutbrown Hare as far as he can reach and as high as he can hop. But Big Nutbrown Hare loves him as far as his long arms can reach and as high as his strong legs can hop. Well then, Little Nutbrown Hare loves Big Nutbrown Hare right up to the moon! That is very far, but it?s just halfway to Big Nutbrown Hare?s love for Little Nutbrown Hare.

With endearing watercolors by Anita Jeram that capture a deep and tender bond between the characters, Sam McBratney?s touching bedtime story seeks to measure the immeasurable: the love between a parent and a child. Great gift copy.
