When Big and Little Nutbrown Hare show off how much they love each other, don’t you wish you could watch them stretch out their arms, hop as high as they can, and tumble upside down with their feet in the air? Well, now you can! Beautifully designed flaps, tabs, and pop-ups respect the integrity of the original story and illustrations while adding a delightfully kinetic 3D element that is truly irresistible. Featuring a beautiful cover, this treasured tale is the ideal gift for anyone who loves someone more than they can measure.
Loving someone to the moon and back takes on a whole new dimension! The cherished classic is even more enticing in a pop-up edition.
When AppleBlossom was born my brother gave us a gift set that included a cup and bib with the illustrations from Guess How Much I Love You on it. We later bought ourselves the board book and read it often. My brother had two older children and one on the way a little younger than AppleBlossom and he told me this was one of his favorites. When I heard about the book coming out in a Pop-Up book format I just knew it was the perfect Christmas present for his son this year. Already we have a great story with reinforcement of how much a child is loved with fabulous illustrations and now it comes to life and jumps, or pops rather, off the page.
Hmm, it appears almost all my young kiddo books I bought for Christmas presents this year are from Candlewick Press. They obviously have my attention!
*Thanks to Candlewick Press for providing a copy for review.*
It looks like you can even find it in French! Oh and check out the activity sheets that go along with the book. Including coloring sheets and bookmarks, I’m one happy mama!
Also right now, you can enjoy an online storytime on Barnes & Noble with the author reading it aloud.
