“Guess How Much I Love You” by Sam McBratney, illustrated by Anita Jeram

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!
