  • ISBN: 1564024733 (reinforced trade ed.) :

Summary: During a bedtime game, every time Little Nutbrown Hare demonstrates how much he loves his father, Big Nutbrown Hare gently shows him that the love is returned even more.
Authors: Jeram, Anita, (ill.).
  • Publishers Weekly Reviews : PW Reviews 1995 March #2
    Fresh as a fiddlehead fern in spring, this beguiling bedtime tale features a pip of a young rabbit and his indulgent parent. Searching for words to tell his dad how much he loves him (and to put off bedtime just an eentsy bit longer), Little Nutbrown Hare comes up with one example after another ("I love you as high as I can hop!"), only to have Big Nutbrown Hare continually up the ante. Finally, on the edge of sleep, he comes up with a showstopper: "I love you right up to the moon." (Dad does top this declaration too, but only after his little bunny falls asleep.) Effused with tenderness, McBratney's wise, endearing and droll story is enriched by the near-monochromatic backdrop of Jeram's pen-and-wash artwork, rendered earthy tones of moss, soft brown and gray for a visually quieting effect just right for that last soothing tale before sleep. Ages 3-up. (Mar.) Copyright 1995 Cahners Business Information.

  • School Library Journal Reviews : SLJ Reviews 1995 May
    PreS-K?In this simple story, a father and son try to outdo one another in expressing their affection. Little Nutbrown Hare says that he loves his father as high as he can reach. Big Nutbrown Hare replies that he loves his son as high as he can reach?which is very high. Father seems to be winning?until the young rabbit tells dad that he loves him right up to the moon?which his father agrees is very far away. But as he kisses his son goodnight, he replies, ``I love you right up to the moon?and back.'' The watercolor illustrations are composed of scratchy lines and large areas of watery washes that are charming, but not too sweet. Large typeface and repetitive refrains invite beginning readers. It's refreshing and realistic to see a father and son relationship that is both competitive and loving.?Karen K. Radtke, Milwaukee Public Library
  • School Library Journal Reviews : SLJ Reviews 2015 January

    PreS—It's been more than 20 years since readers were first introduced to Little Nutbrown Hare. Since then, countless children have been soothed by Jeram's calming ink and watercolor illustrations and McBratney's simple and tender story about a young rabbit and his parent in an "awww"-inducing competition to explain how much they love one another. The original edition has spawned numerous offshoots, including a board book version, various concept books, book and toy sets, calendars, and pop-up editions. This special anniversary edition includes notes from the author and illustrator looking back over the last two decades and revealing a bit about their creation process. This reissue also features an elegant new dust jacket with gold foil accents, small touches that lend the package a bit of sparkle. This would make a lovely new baby gift, or as a fresh replacement for copies that have been well loved and well used.
