Guess How Much I Love You? is one of those children’s books you just know you must add to your bookshelf. This classic is much-loved for a reason, and now the author and illustrator duo Sam McBratney and Anita Jeram have brought us Will You Be My Friend?, a new adventure with Little Nutbrown Hare that promises to become a favourite for story time too.
This is the first new Guess How Much I Love You? picture book story for 24 years! Big Nutbrown Hare is too busy to play, so Little Nutbrown Hare hops off to explore on his own. The little hare soon discovers a puddle, but realises it’s just his reflection staring up at him. He then discovers a shadow but again realises it’s just another him. Before long, however, he is surprised to find a real hare and sets off to play with Tipps the Cloudy Mountain Hare.
Your children will enjoy this charming tale about friendship which celebrates how playful and curious little ones are, with the new adventure on Cloudy Mountain brought to life through beautiful watercolour illustrations.
Will You Be My Friend? is available in hardback for a recommended retail price of R200. It’s recommended for children aged three to seven years. You can watch a book trailer below:
