The beloved Nutbrown Hares hop back in four exciting new stories from the author of the best-selling Guess How Much I Love You stories.
Just like young children everywhere, Little Nutbrown Hare likes to explore, play, venture out into the world, and sometimes just savor the comfort of being at home with loved ones. But whatever he does, and wherever he goes, Big Nutbrown Hare is always there to cheer him on. In a beautiful jacketed Guess How Much I Love You storybook, here are four heartwarming new stories that little readers (and their bigger companions) will instantly relate to.
If you’re a Creative Madness Mama fan, you might remember a couple months ago my sharing a new book love of Little Chick by Amy Hest as they were coming out in separate board books I was loving the all-in-one omnibus edition of the stories. This is similar with Little Nutbrown Hare. How often do you find picture books that you just love to read again and again with your children and then wish there was more to the story. Now with this fabulous picture book there is more adventures for you to read with your kiddos about Little Nutbrown Hare. I have to add that adventures is really the best word in the title for it, because that is exactly what they are.
Each of the four stories builds upon the other, but they are fabulous for curiosity and of course for finding home where the heart is to be the best thing of all. These tales definitely pull on heart strings. I think it will make a wonderful gift and a great read aloud story time for at home or libraries or classrooms anywhere. All in all, great!

“After writing several Nutbrown Hare stories, I thought: what might happen when a little hare begins to explore the space around him? (Think of rivers, mountains, fields and trees!) Will there be fun? Oh yes. Will there be trouble ahead? Could be. For you, here are some of the adventures of Little Nutbrown Hare.” – Sam McBratney
