    This is THE best bedtime story, in my opinion. It was a nightly ritual for my first daughter, and it holds a very special place in our hearts. When it says that the dad bunny leans down and kisses the little one's head, Leah would always lean down and kiss the picture. The page became a little scummy from kiddie goo, and it's PRECIOUS! I will forever cherish my little girl's kisses in the book.

    This is one of only three board books that continuously survive the purge because I simply can't bear to move it out. I see tiny, invisible handprints all over it, as it was a favorite of both of my children. I received this as a baby shower gift and have easily read it hundreds of times. That it is still occasionally requested at bedtime makes my heart happy. Beautifully illustrated, this story is so sweet that I have never been able to read the ending without a lump in my throat and a hitch in This is one of only three board books that continuously survive the purge because I simply can't bear to move it out.

Beautifully illustrated, this story is so sweet that I have never been able to read the ending without a lump in my throat and a hitch in my voice. How much do I love this book? To the moon. More importantly, how much do my children love this book? To the moon and back. 5 stars. Update 2018: This once again has survived the year end, post-holiday purge. I tossed my beloved camouflage print Vans, my 1992 Cure concert T-shirt and several little monuments to my past that no longer serve me, but I simply cannot release this 11 year old, tattered board book. So on my shelf in the living room it remains, where it continues to make my heart happy.

    Someone wanted a story before bed, but someone isn't listening. I wonder if that someone could be Indy boy? And I wonder if that was to put off going to bed?! Of course it is. This is a great little book. One that is a physical story as we do the actions along with the little hare, and the big hare. Our arms stretched wide or high, to show the love. This is a good little book for my son as he does not sit still for a story, but as it's about what 'we' do at home ie., 'I love you to the moon and Someone wanted a story before bed, but someone isn't listening.

Recommended book for 2's through to the moon and back of age groups.

    Can't the parent just let the kid win one? Even after kid falls asleep, the parent has to one-up the frustrated, exhausted child. Go pick on someone your own size!

    Okay this is my favorite book in the whole wide world, so I was surprised to see the number of less than favorable reviews. To the guy that thinks (and I use that word liberally) that this book is a allegory for socialism, really? I mean really???? Really????? To everyone else that thinks this book is about a "game of one-upsmanship" or it has a "undercurrent of competition between the parent and the child", You guys could not be more wrong.

Is upsmanship even really a word? This book is about the nature of the love that exists between parent and child, no matter how much your children love you, I assure you that it will never be as much as you love them. That's what this book is about. I read this book to my daughter just last night and I've read it to her at least a hundred times. Every time I do, when I flip that last page and read the final sentence, I nearly cry. That's why this is my favorite book in the whole wide world!

    One of the only books I can read to my daughter where the adult in the book is a male. Most of the books have no men or relegate the father to support-staff roles. Having said that, the book is really a testosterone-fueled look at the competitive indoctrination of little boys. Paraphrase of text: Kid: I love you as million. Dad: I love you a billion. Kid: Can't you let me win once? Dad: Only when you surpass my strength, then I will live vicariously th One of the only books I can read to my daughter where the adult in the book is a male.

    This may be my least favorite children's book that I've read to the kids. Even worse than the highly commercialized children's books devoid of any value which are made for nothing but the tie-ins to TV shows and toy sales. Guess How Much I Love You turns loving each other into a competition - and one where the child can never win against the parent. I like the idea of parent and child loving each other a lot, but this is so, so wrong of a way to communicate that theme. I found it unpleasant and This may be my least favorite children's book that I've read to the kids.

I like the idea of parent and child loving each other a lot, but this is so, so wrong of a way to communicate that theme. I found it unpleasant and saddening. It just made me uneasy to read it. And not just me. Ms. K only had to read it to her kids once, before she got rid of it. She felt the same way about it that I did. Yuck. On a positive note, the illustrations are good.

    "I love you right up to the moon- and back." I remember reading this book with my mom when I was little. I found it on sale at my bookstore and bought to so I can read it to my future kids. <3 5/5 stars!

    Adorable. Little back and forth about who loves the other more.

    Nice illustrations. But the tone of the book doesn't strike me as particularly nice. I've known people who always have to win, and they're generally not pleasant to be around. The father figure's need to get in the last word even after the son is asleep reminds me of those unpleasant people, and makes me want to avoid this book.

    Small-fry and I have just added the phrase "I love you to the moon and back" to our vocabulary and it makes my cold-icy heart swell a little each time.

    It was about bunnies showing each other how much they love each other. It was a very cute book. They were cute bunnies.

    A shot of insulin, please! Sam McBratney's Guess How Much I Love You has lots of saccharine in it—but not to a point it’s cloying, just something that a dreamland-bound kid would surely enjoy. See, there’s no plot of any kind, just a pair of adorable, furry hares (I think they’re father and son) engaging in an equally cute contest on who loves the other more. Anita Jeram’s illustrations are perfectly endearing. I heard there’s a collection of this, and kid or not—geez I just turned twenty!—I’ll be A shot of insulin, please!

    At risk of offending, I kind of really hate this smug Daddy trying to compete with his son the whole time. Why is it so important to him to show his son that he's bigger and more powerful (at loving, I know, I know, but the point stands) all the time? Just let the kid love you big and give him right back atcha. How frustrated that little nutbrown hare must feel. I think this is a book for parents not for children. And it's fucking sappy.

    This is a sweet story where the big bunny (maybe a daddy bunny?--nice touch as there are relatively few books with dads) and the little bunny try to express how much they love one another. The ending phrase seemed a bit trite but perhaps it's because I have heard the phrase so much now, on everything from t-shirts to wall art, that it seems cliche. Not sure if this book was the first one to use it...?

    I HATE this book. What is the message? No matter what the little bunny tries to do, the father bunny has to one-better it. ARGH. I refuse to read this to my child anymore.

    OK--I don't get this book. I just picked it up at a thrift store, feeling like Jackson is probably missing out on a major rite of passage if he doesn't read this as a toddler, but I don't get it. So the big nutbrown hare has to outdo the little nutbrown hare every time? It's a competition, is it? Sure, it's pretty and all, but someone needs to explain to me why this is a classic. Is my Mom card going to be revoked for saying that?

    *3.5 stars* This book is a very cute and happy; it gives a warm feeling to those reading it. The illustrations and the text work very nicely together. I enjoyed reading it with my little cousins.

    Simple, but it's a cute and effective book to read to children. The illustrations accompany the words with a charming appeal. Of course, who grows tired of cute illustrated rabbits? No one, that's who.

LNH is holding on to BNH's long ears as he is being taken to bed and LNH asks BNH if he knows how much he loves him.

Little Nutbrown Hare (LNH) thinks he knows but when he relates to Big Nutbrown Hare (BNH) he falls short whatever he does! LNH is holding on to BNH's long ears as he is being taken to bed and LNH asks BNH if he knows how much he loves him. When BNH says that he couldn't guess how much, LNH stretches his arms out and shows him that the distance between the extremities of each is how much he loves him. Just to show how much he loves LNH, BNH stretches his arms out and says that is how much he loves LNB. A little bit taken aback, LNH then stretches upwards as high as he can reach and says that is how much he loves BNH, who responds by stretching upwards and tells LNH that is the extent of his love ... and LNH realises that his arms are long! LNH tries a handstand and tells BNH that he loves him all the way up to his toes but once again he is thwarted as BNH picks him up, swings him high and says, 'And I love you all the way up to your toes.' So LNH then hops high and tells BNH that he loves him as high as he can hop. The latter responds by hopping so high that his ears touch the highest branches of the trees and he tells LNH that is how much he loves him! So LNH decides that he will try another strategy and he says, 'I love you all the way down the lane to the river' to which BNH responds with 'I love you across the river and over the hills.' LNH thinks that is very far and feels sleepy with all the thought he has put in. But just as he is beginning to feel too sleepy to think anymore he looks up at the sky and realises that nothing could be further than the sky. So he tells BNH, 'I love you right up to the moon' and BNH is obliged to say, 'Oh, that's far. That is very, very far.' LNH thinks that he has had the last word ... But as BNH puts him into his bed of leaves and kisses him goodnight, he lies down next to his youngster and he smiles and whispers to him, 'I love you right up to the moon - AND BACK.' Little Brown Hare just cannot win but he does know that the love between the two of them is immense.

In fact, I buy it as a little token to add in with any gift I buy for a new baby - it's is such a wonderful book! Guess How Much I Love You has been around for over 2o years now and its impact has been huge. It is the heart-warming story of two Nutbrown Hares, Big Nutbrown Hare and Little Nutbrown Hare. The two are never stated to be father and son in the original storybooks, though we assume them to be. Little Nutbrown Hare asks Big Nutbrown Hare the question, "Guess how much I love you?", and the book then meanders on as the two use larger and larger measures to quantify just how much they love each other. The story is so simple, but so very sweet in showing the love the two hares share for each other. This is such a gorgeous book to look at and to read, and I truly love reading this to my son before he goes to bed. If you don't have it in your little library, you need to!
