You're All My Favorites
Guess How Much I Love You
by Sam McBratney, illustrated by Anita Jeram
Ages 3-8 32 pages Candlewick September 2008 Hardcover    

A treasured childhood story that has meant so much to so many children around the world, Sam McBratneyís Guess How Much I Love You is perfect for bedtime, even to very young children. If your child also happens to like bunnies, as most little ones do, then they will love this even more. The illustrations by Anita Jeram are lovely, like gentle watercolor paintings.

Little Nutbrown Hare tries to express to Big Nutbrown Hare how much he loves him, but every time Little Nutbrown Hare states an example, Big Nutbrown Hare can top it. Itís almost competitive, but itís such a gentle tale that I canít imagine any little one taking it that way. This is the kind of heartwarming bedtime story a child will want to hear over and over again.

If you are able to get the special edition including the animated story time DVD, your child will enjoy that as well. However, do remember that nothing can replace a parent reading a good, loving story like this one to their child, especially at bedtime. When Big Nutbrown Hare says at the end ďI love you right up to the moon and back,Ē thatís time for the goodnight kiss and a peaceful night for your little one.
