Book of the Month: February - Guess How Much I Love You



Love is in the air and we’ve got just the book for showing it! The story of how Little Nutbrown Hare and Big Nutbrown Hare express their love for one another has been translated into 55 languages and in this article, we look at why it’s become so popular. The great news is that Guess How Much I Love You is celebrating its 20th Anniversary this year and we have five copies of the anniversary edition to give away. Read on to find out more.

Why is Guess How Much I Love You so popular?

  • Who doesn’t love a special way to tell their little one how loved they are? The relationship between Little Nutbrown Hare and Big Nutbrown Hare is deliberately unspecified,  making it easy to change the word ‘he’ to ‘she’ or add in ‘Mummy’, ‘Daddy’, ‘Grandma’ or ‘Grandad’. These small flexibilities mean that any two people reading the book together can relate to it!
  • This book is filled with actions that can be copied, e.g. reaching out your arms as wide or as high as they can go, jumping, and, for the brave, headstands! This is a great way to encourage active toddlers to enjoy the book and learn about actions.
  • As the book contains lots of speech, there is lots of opportunity for funny voices! The lines in the book are quite repetitive and memorable, meaning that eventually, toddlers can join in with the story too!
  • It can be enjoyed throughout the preschool age. The repetition in this book creates a wonderful rhythm that will help to build language skills from birth. As your little one grows up, they will enjoy the book and its wonderful illustrations too. Guess How Much I Love You also comes in cloth, board book, and pop-up formats, there really is a book for everyone in this fantastic range!

To enjoy this book even more with your little one, you can also download an activity pack.
