Let’s Play in the Snow

Sam McBratney

Illustrated by Anita Jeram

Board Book

Ages Infant to 3

Candlewick Press, 2007, 978-0-7636-4108-5

  It is wintertime and Little Nutbrown Hare and Big Nutbrown Hare are out in the snow. They decide to play their own version of I Spy. Little Nutbrown Hare begins by saying that he spies “something that belongs to a tree.” Big Nutbrown Hare guesses that the something is a leaf. And he is right. Next Big Nutbrown Hare spies “something that belongs to a spider” and Little Nut Brown guesses that the something is a spider web.

  Back and forth and two hares go until Big Nutbrown Hare comes up with a very different sort of clue. Will his little charge be able to guess what this something is?

  With delightful illustrations and a simple storyline, this board book created by the duo who brought us Guess How Much I love you? brings back the two characters that so many people fell in love with in that much acclaimed picture book. Once again the strong tie of love between the characters is highlighted, and little children will love the warm message and the cunning illustrations.
