Giveaway & Review: Guess How Much I Love You Big Nutbrown Hare

#AD/Gifted. On 14th February 2011 I bought my three month old son a book; that book was Guess How Much I Love You by Sam McBratney. Since then I have read the story of the big nutbrown hare and the little nutbrown hair to him regularly; and now he’s reading it to me. I confess, it’s virtually impossible for me to read it out loud without a lump appearing in my throat; I’m a big, big softie.

Guess How Much I Love You has grown and become part of the fabric of parenthood. I don’t know anyone who hasn’t told their children that they love them to the moon and back. It’s part of our bedtimes and our goodbyes and I’ll be sad when he stops sleepily whispering it to me.

Review: Guess How Much I Love You Big Nutbrown Hare

For the last THREE YEARS I’ve asked for a Guess How Much I Love You Big Nutbrown Hare for Mother’s Day. I thought it would be a lovely gift; one which really meant something to both me and my son and a reminder of our ‘love you to the moon and back’ thing. But no, my endless hinting, sharing of links and asking outright has come to nothing. So I’ve gone rogue and got my own. I will wrap it beautifully, give it to my son the night before Mother’s Day and ask him to gift it to me first thing on Mothering Sunday.

The Big Nutbrown Hare is beautiful. It’s as beautiful and as soft and snuggly as I’d hoped. Big Nutbrown Hare is made from super soft plush with an adorable  embroidered “I Love You” on his foot. His bottom is full of beans so he can sit perfectly on any surface. He’s suitable from birth, and also suitable for 42 year old women who have been asking for a Big Nutbrown Hare for THREE YEARS.
