I love you right up to the moon and back!

Little Nutbrown Hare loves Big Nutbrown Hare so much he wants to show him. But every time he tries, Big Nutbrown Hare tops him. For instance, when Little Nutbrown Hare spreads his arms as wide as he can, Big Nutbrown Hare can spread his even wider.

The same thing happens when Little Nutbrown Hare reaches as high as he can, Big Nutbrown Hare can reach even higher.

Little Nutbrown Hare spends the day attempting to show Big Nutbrown Hare how enormous his love is, but he can never beat out what Big Nutbrown Hare can do. However, that night, right before Little Nutbrown Hare drifts off to sleep, he finds the perfect way.

This is a tender story that celebrates the love of a child. The illustrations are just as sweet as the tale, in this classic children's board book. This can be read anytime, but makes a great bedtime story. To make things even nicer, a snugly, little plush brown hare is included in this gift box.

This five-star set would make a lovely gift for Easter, a new baby, or any other time--an occasion or not. Children through age five will adore this.

Thank you, Candlewick Publishers, for providing Tickmenot with this set to review. Opinions are my own.

Such a cute, warm, charming story! I'm a huge marshmallow, but it really made me cry. Five stars.
