    Guess How Much I Love You is a timeless picture book about love that has enchanted millions of readers around the world. 

    As they hop their way to bedtime, Little Nutbrown Hare wants to tell Big Nutbrown Hare how much he loves him. But it’s not so easy to measure love - is it higher than you can jump? Taller than you can stretch? Little Nutbrown Hare tries to find bigger and better ways to express his love as he stretches his arms and hops as high as he can saying “I love you THIS much”, but as he drifts off to sleep Big Nutbrown Hare has the last word “I love you right up to the moon… and BACK”.

    The original picture book was published in 1994 and the sweet story and beautiful watercolour illustrations captured the hearts of adults and children all over the world. Written by Sam McBratney and illustrated by Anita Jeram, the book has gone on to sell over 40 million copies worldwide and was also adapted into a popular TV series in 2011, shown in more than 60 countries.

    The heart-warming story has not only been read at countless bedtimes, it has also inspired many adults with quotes being used at wedding ceremonies or on Valentine’s Day and many Guess How Much I Love You gifts featuring the two hares. The universal message at the centre of the book, that love is too great to measure, makes it resonate with all kinds of people, at every age.  

    The original Guess How Much I Love You book is the perfect bedtime story for babies and pre-schoolers and is one of the most popular presents for new babies. There are also plenty of other books to explore featuring the Guess How Much I Love you bunny, including board books introducing colours and counting and seasonal adventures for Little Nutbrown Hare.
