Plot summary

This is the story of two Nutbrown Hares, Big Nutbrown Hare and Little Nutbrown Hare. The two are never stated to be father and son in the original storybooks, though are referred to as such in the narration for the animated television series. Little Nutbrown Hare asks Big Nutbrown Hare the titular question, "Guess how much I love you?", and the book continues as the two use larger and larger measures to quantify how much they love each other in answer to the question. The story is simple, but effectively shows the love the two share for each other.

Subsequent Nutbrown Hare books

In 2007, two additional Nutbrown Hare books were published: When I'm Big: A Guess How Much I Love You Storybook and Colors Everywhere: A Guess How Much I Love You Storybook, later released as a set. In 2008, Let's Play in the Snow: A Guess How Much I Love You Storybook was published. And in 2009, A Surprise for the Nutbrown Hares: A Guess How Much I Love You Storybook was published. The Adventures of Little Nutbrown Hare, a 72-page, four-story compilation, was released on August 28, 2012. It features the tales "The Hiding Tree," "On Cloudy Mountain," "The Far Field," and "Coming Home." Its illustrations were provided by Andy Wanger and Debbie Tarbett, "in the style of Anita Jeram."
