Guess How Much I Love You is Twenty Years Old…

April 3rd, 2015 · 8 Comments

Today is International Children’s Book Day and the perfect day to celebrate The Twentieth Anniversary of Guess How Much I Love You…



One of Our Best Books Ever…

This little book is one of our all time favourites… we received it as a baby present for Hood #1 and we never looked back. We read it over and over and over again… in fact it is one of those books that we love and adore and that we all know off by heart.

Actions Speak Louder Than Words…

This is a delightful bedtime book, to be read peacefully as your child drifts off to sleep… well actually in our house it has always been a bit of a get the wriggles out before bed… kind of a book over here!!!

Hand prints… and lengths of string measured from finger tip to finger tip of little outstretched arms…

Followed by cups of tea and a read… because this book is all about being read again. Guess How Much I Love You is very much one of those especially delightful books that are good at transforming a very ordinary afternoon into an extra-ordinary one.

    WOW!! You guys have THEE Best Library system, or Library events I have ever encountered! We decided recently it’s time for our small family to move back to the “Big City”…One of the things I am MOST Excited to go back to is our local 3 different Pubic Libraries that have soo many activities for kids! I loved this book more than the kids ever did. Thank you for always sharing such amazing content.

    Hay Jeanine, that sounds like a very exciting move. Three libraries in your area is really quite impressive and sounds like you will all be busy as can be in the best bookish way. Hope you are having a fabulous weekend!!!

    This was one of the first I read to my daughter who is now 20. It was not even in a book, but published in a magazine – can’t remember which one – and I kept it to read to her every night for years. Adding more children necessiated buying the book for them too. Precious memories.
