When I'm Big: A Guess How Much I Love You Storybook (Guess How Much I Love You)
Synopses & Reviews
For the first time in twelve years, the Nutbrown Hares hop back for a brand-new GUESS HOW MUCH I LOVE YOU story. Happy spring!
Out in the fresh spring air, the two Nutbrown Hares see a tiny acorn growing. "Someday it will be a tree," says Big Nutbrown Hare. Then they spy a tadpole that will grow up to be a frog, a caterpillar that will turn into a butterfly, and a nest of eggs that will one day be birds. Suddenly Little Nutbrown Hare turns to Big Nutbrown Hare and laughs. "What does a little brown hare like me turn into?"
"Nutbrown Hare and Little Nutbrown Hare, the cotton-tailed father-son stars of McBratney and Jeram's Guess How Much I Love You, hop back onto the scene for two board books that introduce preschool concepts via sweet-natured stories. The Hares' easygoing exchanges, familiar to fans of the original picture book, are set off to great effect as the son poses such queries as 'What's your favorite red?' (in Colors Everywhere) or 'What does an egg turn into?' (in When I'm Big). At every turn, Nutbrown Hare replies briefly, supplying clear bits of information ('I think maybe those berries' and 'A bird,' respectively); his answers both satisfy his young charge as well as encourage further discussion. Jeram's sunny ink-and-watercolor illustrations — sprightly spot art and spreads — offer subtle yet solid reinforcement of the text, playfully challenging youngest readers to explore a grassy riverbank or flower-filled meadow and come to their own conclusions. Weaving color identification and size/growth comparison into pleasant spring outings, the approach in these books feels like a fresh and logical expansion of the popular characters' world. Ages 2-4." Publishers Weekly (Starred Review) (Copyright Reed Business Information, Inc.)
After a decade of enchanting millions of readers of all ages, the treasured Guess How Much I Love You deserves some loving treatment all its own. And now the classic tale has been tenderly dressed up in a sumptuous new cover with an accent of cream cloth and a glint of gold stamping on the spine. The book is tucked inside a marbleized slipcase that features the image from the original book cover. And, as an extra bonus, each book comes shrink-wrapped with a free CD offering a special reading of the timeless tale that has captured so many hearts around the world.
