A mere 20 pages in this board-book gently coaxes the reader into a contest of love between Big Nutbrown Hare and Little Nutbrown Hare. As the little hare tries his best to express his love to the big hare, the big hare's love proves far greater an expression than Little Nutbrown Hare can meet or even conceive possible.
The content easily serves as a conversation starter between parent and child on the dimensions of love. The love described between the covers can even promote a comparable discussion on God's surpassing love to each of His children. That's what happened between my granddaughters and myself.
The illustrations are simple and visually show the height and depth of immeasurable love. In one illustration Big Nutbrown Hare extends his arms outward to express how much he loves Little Nutbrown Hare.
Having read this to my 5 year-old and 9-year-old granddaughters, I might personally add that they love hearing it as their bedtime story. I rarely finish it before they are in slumberland dreaming of the love they have for me and I for them.
I highly recommend it. If your local bookstore doesn't have it you can order one by clicking on the publisher's link below. It's well worth the money. SelahV
