Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly

Nutbrown Hare and Little Nutbrown Hare, the cotton-tailed father-son stars of McBratney and Jeram's Guess How Much I Love You, hop back onto the scene for two board books that introduce preschool concepts via sweet-natured stories. The Hares' easygoing exchanges, familiar to fans of the original picture book, are set off to great effect as the son poses such queries as "What's your favorite red?" (in Colors Everywhere) or "What does an egg turn into?" (in When I'm Big). At every turn, Nutbrown Hare replies briefly, supplying clear bits of information ("I think maybe those berries" and "A bird," respectively); his answers both satisfy his young charge as well as encourage further discussion. Jeram's sunny ink-and-watercolor illustrations-sprightly spot art and spreads-offer subtle yet solid reinforcement of the text, playfully challenging youngest readers to explore a grassy riverbank or flower-filled meadow and come to their own conclusions. Weaving color identification and size/growth comparison into pleasant spring outings, the approach in these books feels like a fresh and logical expansion of the popular characters' world. Ages 2-4.

If you remember and enjoyed Guess How Much I Love You, then the reprise of these adorable bunnies in their own board book series will be very welcome. The father and son are discussing what happens as plants and animals grow. An acorn becomes a big tree, a tadpole grows into a leaping frog, and a caterpillar turns into a colorful butterfly. The big question from Little Nutbrown Hare is whether anything ever stays the same. Finally, he asks his father what will happen to him. The answer should delight any young child as Little Nutbrown Hare learns that he will grow up big and tall just like his dad. The illustrations show an inquisitive little hare, a contemplative and caring dad, and a story filled with questions that most kids would ask. The warmth of their relationship and the sharing of information should appeal to both parents and their own offspring. Reviewer: Marilyn Courtot

    Don't miss this book!

    There are few books that fall into the category of must haves for young children, but When I'm Big is such a book. Written by acclaimed children's author, Sam McBratney, who has authored over 50 books, and rose to international fame with his multi-million selling picture book Guess How Much I Love You, When I'm Big is sure to also become a best seller.

    Partnered with his frequent collaborator, illustrator Anita Jeram, McBratney has written another endearing, delightful, and witty story featuring the father-son team of Big Nutbrown Hare and Little Nutbrown Hare. Like every child, Little Nutbrown Hare is curious about life and asks his father many questions about growing up. Big Nutbrown Hare shares his wisdom, explaining that the tiny tadpole will grow into a frog, the caterpillar into a butterfly, and the egg into a bird. Thinking about all the animals growing up, Little Nubrown Hare then asks the most important question, "What does a little brown hare like me turn into?"

    Children will identify with the curious young hare in this story and delight in the answers of the father. They will also learn how animals change as they grow all the while being charmed by the captivating drawings.

    Quill says: There's a reason this series has sold millions of copies - don't miss it!
