Such a beautiful story describing how much parent and child love each other. I think parents should also read it too, it reminds us the unconditional love our child has to us.

A classic story of parent/child love. I love the little moments where Little Nutbrown Hare stops and thinks about what Big Nutbrown Hare just said. A sweet story all around.

my dad used to read this book to me when i was little! it is such a cute book and i recommend it to parents with little children.

You know your mom loves you, she is your mom. But this book reminds you and here is the thing, I respect her more.

A very sweet story about the love between a parent and child. Gift this one instead of "I'll Love You Forever."

Lovely illustrations accompany this heartwarming story Little Nutbrown Hare who finds many ways of declaring his love for his father who in turn finds a way to show that he loves Little Nutbrown more. This is a wonderful read-aloud book, especially for bedtime.

Big Nutbrown Hare is a show off who won't just let his child say "I love you". Not my favourite book.
(I understand that the "but I love you more" is supposed to be cute/sweet. I just don't agree that it is.)

The perfect present to give a new baby. Little Nutbrown Hare and his father show how much they love each other.
My favourite book of all time.

Again great for Father's Day or Family Day.

Read on 2015-Aug-6. A great book.

A great story both my son and myself loved very much, telling how much little Nutbrown hare and his daddy loved each other.

Little Nutbrown Hare tries to out-do Big Nutbrown Hare, but he can never claim to love his daddy as much as his daddy loves him. The competition is sweetly silly. Recommended for snuggle time with your little one.
