For Ages: 3-5
Where to Get it: This book is available to purchase in store, at Chapters or online at¬†Chapters and Amazon.
From the same author who wrote the wildly popular, Guess How Much I Love You, the story re-visits the Nutbrown Hare family – Little Nutbrown Hare and his Daddy – through four short stories that explore the four seasons!¬† In the first story, Little Nutbrown Hare has lots of questions about little creatures in nature¬†growing up.¬†¬†By summer, he notices colors everywhere.¬† My daughter loved pointing out everything on the page that corresponded to a particular color. Next comes¬†autumn, of course, and the¬†wind¬†blows in a big cardboard box, perfect for Little Nutbrown Hare to play hide-and-seek with.¬†¬†¬†Finally, when winter¬†arrives, Little Nutbrown Hare and his Daddy play “I Spy.”
When I asked my four year-old what her favorite part of this book was, she said “The I Spy” part.¬† This is not surprising, since we played “I Spy” on a lot of our summer car trips this year!¬† These stories are simple to read and easy to understand and you can’t help but love the relationship between Big Nutbrown Hare and Little Nutbrown Hare.
