Guess How Much I Love You
Guess How Much I Love You | Sam McBratney
32 posts | 34 read
Sometimes when you love someone very, very much, you want to tell them how great your feelings are. But, as Little Nutbrown Hare and Big Nutbrown Hare discover, love is not an easy thing to measure. This board book version of Sam McBratney's tale comes complete with a fridge magnet.

“I love you right up to the moon-and back“


I liked the part when little hare jumps over backwards and says I love you all the way to my toes and then big hare swings him high in the sky and says I love you all the way to your toes. I thought this was a funny and creative part


I have read this book before to children and they always really enjoy it. I enjoyed the story behind it and think it would be a great bedtime book for a young child

Beckett‘s first book haul (and a guest appearance!). A special note about Good Dog, Carl: my grandparents had Rottweilers when I was growing up. My Pops would get my Grams a Carl book every Christmas. My Aunt sent me this and I was very teary opening it. So very special ❤️

I‘m getting so excited for next weekend!! We are 26 weeks and counting! #raisingareader #BooksforBeckett

Guess How Much I Love You by Sam McBrantley & Anita Jeram is a wonderful TL and more specifically a fable to bring into the lower grades. This book is about a little hare and a big hare who love each other very much. The hares go back and forth trying to out-love each other. https://nzmaths.co.nz/resource/guess-how-much-i-love-you The previous link provides a lesson plan for this book to incorporate basic math concepts like big bigger and biggest.

juliette_kathleen Using this lesson plan along with a RA will incorporate the UDL principle 3.1. By activating this prior knowledge needed to read this book, this will also cover EL 5 as it reinforces or teaches the students new vocabulary and concepts. Overall this book does an amazing job at the portrayal of reciprocated love. #UCFLAE3414SP18 2y
KaitlynN My mom used to read this book to me when I was little! I loved it! I never thought about the math aspect. That would be so cool to incorporate! Also maybe Valentine‘s Day?? 2y

This F book is a sweet story that is perfect for young elementary students and would be wonderful for a RA in a preschool through 1st grade classroom. It won the ALA Notable Children‘s Book Award. It is also available in Spanish and therefore works well with UDL 2.4 and ESOL 25. The following link directs you to many crafts and activities regarding the book: http://www.guesshowmuchiloveyou.com/childrens-activities #UCFLAE3414f17

DrSpalding Be sure to expand on your EL/UDL strategies. I read this book many times to my boys when they were young. Excellent choice. 2y

Little Llama's quiet time rules are that she can have any stuffed animals and any books she wants, but she has to stay on her bed. So her solution has been to empty her bookcase and place all her books within leaning reach of her bed. I helped her neaten the pile today. Now she's reading GHMILU, featuring "Big Hopper" and "Little Hopper".

kspenmoll 😍clever! 3y
bookishkris @Riveted_Reader_Melissa yes. @kspenmoll she is a clever kid. Sometimes too clever for her own (and her grown ups) good. I feel sorry for her future teachers, she's an independent fiery little soul. 3y
