Editorial Reviews

From Barnes & Noble
Little Nutbrown Hare is trying to tell Big Nutbrown Hare just how much he loves him, but each time Big Nutbrown Hare's love seems to be bigger. Indeed, there is no way to measure the love, and Little Nutbrown Hare can finally only express it by saying his love is as far as the moon. After Big Nutbrown Hare kisses Little Nutbrown Hare goodnight, he whispers that his love is as far as the moon and back. This loving goodnight book has expressive and lively illustrations.
From the Publisher
It's hard to believe that a pop-up wasn't the creators' original intention, so seamlessly do moveable parts dovetail into this modern classic's storyline...The book is available in just about every format-but this is the perfect one.
—Kirkus Reviews (starred review)

A beautifully produced, restrained amplification of the original, sure to wind up a reliable baby shower gift.

Kirkus Reviews
It's hard to believe that a pop-up wasn't the creators' original intention, so seamlessly do moveable parts dovetail into this modern classic's storyline. In contrast to the tale's 1998 pop-up version, the figures here move on every page, and with an unusually graceful naturalism to boot. From pulling down Big Nutbrown Hare's ears on the opening spread to make sure he's listening to drowsily turning his head to accept a final good-night kiss in a multi-leveled pull-down tableau at the close, all of Little Nutbrown Hare's hops, stretches and small gestures serve the poetically spare text--as do Big Nutbrown's wider, higher responses to his charge's challenges. As readers turn a flap to read Big Nutbrown's "But I love you this much," his arms extend to demonstrate. The emotional connection between the two hares is clearer than ever in Jeram's peaceful, restrained outdoor scenes, which are slightly larger than those in the trade edition, and the closing scene is made even more intimate by hiding the closing line ("I love you right up to the moon--and back") until an inconspicuous flap is opened up. The book is available in just about every format--but this is the perfect one. (Pop-up picture book. 3-6)
Lund
From Horn Book An abbreviated edition of the story about Little Nutbrown Hare trying to prove how much he loves Big Nutbrown Hare is weakened by the addition of popups and pull tabs to the illustrations. The paper engineering is standard at best (some pages are quite stiff) and adds nothing to the sentiment of the text and the otherwise charming illustrations. Stick with the original edition. -- Copyright © 1999 The Horn Book, Inc. All rights reserved.

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.)

Children's Literature - Marilyn Courtot
It is Little Nutbrown Hare's bedtime. Stalling, he tells his father how much he loves him—as far as he can reach, as high as he can hop. Each time, Big Nutbrown Hare goes him one better—he can reach farther, hop higher. The pull tabs and pop-ups emphasize this little contest. Pull the tab and Little Nutbrown Hare hops up. Lift the ? page tab and Big Nut Brown Hare reaches way above the page of the book. Finally, Little Nutbrown Hare falls asleep. As he gazes protectively at his son, Big Nutbrown Hare whispers some final words of love. Endearing pen and ink/watercolor illustrations complete this sweet tale of familial devotion, which is now available in a pop-up version. There are tabs to pull and a big panoramic pop-up of Little Nutbrown Hare and his Dad. The pop-ups in this new version are quite clever and do add another dimension to an almost timeless story.

It's Little Nutbrown Hare's bedtime. Stalling, he tells his father how much he loves him-as far as he can reach, as high as he can hop. Each time, Big Nutbrown Hare goes him one better-he can reach farther, hop higher. Finally, Little Nutbrown Hare falls asleep. As he gazes protectively at his son, Big Nutbrown Hare whispers some final words of love. Endearing pen and ink/watercolor illustrations complete this sweet tale of familial devotion. It also comes in a board book version and a boxed set that contains stuffed hare and the board book.
School Library Journal
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
Stephanie Zvirin
ges 35. An endearing nursery game is beautifully revitalized in this comforting, sleepy-time picture book. A little hare tests his father's love by declaring his own: "Guess how much I love you . . . This much." Jeram's double-page-spread watercolors are just right for the gentle competition that ensues as parent and child each avow affection in ever more expansive terms. Neither sugary nor too cartoonlike, the watercolors, in soft shades of brown and greens with delicate ink-line details, warmly capture the loving relationship between parent and child as well as the comedy that stems from little hare's awe of his wonderful dad. The story ends with a declaration of love so great it reaches "right up to the moon," and little hare finally falls fast asleep. There's not a wrong note in this tender tale, which should become an enduring bedtime favorite--right up there with "Goodnight Moon".
