Yellow flowers... red berries... Nutbrown Hare! Come along with Little Nutbrown Hare as he discovers the beautiful colors around him! Recommended for ages 2-4.
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!
Down by the river on a bright summer’s day, Big and Little Nutbrown Hare are lazily looking at all the colors around them. It’s so hard to decide which ones they like best! Big Nutbrown Hare’s favorite blue is the blue of the sky, while Little Nutbrown Hare’s favorite green is the green of the leaves. But which of the many lovely shades of brown will the Nutbrown Hares decide is the best of all?
Sam McBratney wrote GUESS HOW MUCH I LOVE YOU as the fifty-seventh book of his career. More recently, he reunited with Anita Jeram for YOU'RE ALL MY FAVORITES. He has also written radio plays and a short-story collection for adults and worked for many years as a teacher. He lives in Northern Ireland.
Anita Jeram is the illustrator of GUESS HOW MUCH I LOVE YOU and YOU'RE ALL MY FAVORITES as well as many other acclaimed picture books, including Amy Hest’s award-winning series of books about Sam and Mrs. Bear and ALL PIGS ARE BEAUTIFUL and I LOVE GUINEA PIGS, both by Dick King- Smith. She lives in Northern Ireland.
Nutbrown Hare and Little Nutbrown Hare, the cotton-tailed father-son stars of McBratney and Jerams 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 Whats your favorite red? (in Colors Everywhere) or What does an egg turn into? (in When Im 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. Jerams sunny ink-and-watercolor illustrationssprightly spot art and spreadsoffer 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.
