Topic: Gifts for the New Baby

This is an endearing story about the immeasurable bond of love between a hare and his baby son. Searching for ways to tell his dad how much he loves him, little hare says, "I love you all the way to my toes!" His dad replies, as he swings him in the air over his head, "And I love you all the way up to your toes!" This engaging dialogue about unconditional love continues until little Nutbrown Hare settles in his bed and whispers, "I love you right up to the moon and back". The watercolor illustrations enrich this story. The book can be bought with a stuffed little animal as well as in a Big Book format to read aloud at storyhours.
