Guess How Much I Love You - Padded Board Book << Prev page

I don't know where it was that I found out about the rituals and endearing exchanges which go on in nearly every child's room at bedtime (at least of the folks in my circle of friends), but I remember thinking that our routine seemed tame compared to many! The back scratching, the stories, the songs, the innocent and good-natured declarations of ''I love you'' and ''I love you more'' in response.

(Note: This book is considered ''Imperfect'' as it has a red ink mark either on the top or bottom of the pages. Publishers often do this when a book goes out of print.)

Now I know that bedtime routines are limited only by the imagination (and time and energy, of course) of those involved, and I'd love someday to see a documentary filmed by hidden cameras. But I digress. The point is, Little Nutbrown Hare and Big Nutbrown Hare have the sweetest mutual admiration society operating at full tilt on this particular night, and we, the readers, can be voyeurs during the ritual.

First of all -- the illustrations. Soft pastel watercolors and pen/ink drawings combine with an artful hand to make it hard to take our eyes off of this father-son pair. It's Little Nutbrown Hare's bedtime, and he wants to make sure Big knows how much he's loved. And vice versa. Thus begins an arms-stretching-wide, hopping-ever-so-wide, etc., extravaganza just to make some analogies about how big their love is. And the uncluttered, simple text perfectly conveys in words what the illustrations do visually.

Little's demonstrations are on a smaller scale than Big's simply because of size, but the point is that they each love the other to the max. And eventually they tire out Little so that he konks right out. In a tender moment of calm and quiet after the acrobatics stop and Little is no longer awake, we see the sweetness which invariably comes when a parent finds himself alone with his sleeping child. Check out the illustrations on the last several pages. They'll touch your heart. Your child's, too.
