Description

For the first time in twelve years, the Nutbrown Hares hop back for a brand-new GUESS HOW MUCH I LOVE YOU story. Happy spring!

Out in the fresh spring air, the two Nutbrown Hares see a tiny acorn growing. "Someday it will be a tree," says Big Nutbrown Hare. Then they spy a tadpole that will grow up to be a frog, a caterpillar that will turn into a butterfly, and a nest of eggs that will one day be birds. Suddenly Little Nutbrown Hare turns to Big Nutbrown Hare and laughs. "What does a little brown hare like me turn into?"
