Enjoy this Easter special adventure based on the classic picture book that has sold more than 30 million copies worldwide, written by Sam McBratney, illustrated by Anita Jeram and published by Walker Books. When Little Nutbrown Hare sees a pure white fawn shining and dancing in the moonlight his friends think he’s making it up. They venture through the woody woods in the next valley, down the streamy stream and pass the rocky rocks to find her but as their doubt grows, she is right there hiding on the patches of white snow, thinking it’s a big game of hide and seek. She promises to visit them on Easter Day making Easter that much more special for all.
The Guess How Much I Love you series by best-selling author Sam McBratney are on my list of favorite books to read to all of my children! I so enjoy the fact that my kids can experience not just the book series but the inspired animated adventures of Little Nutbrown Hare on DVD. I don’t know about you, but I find something magical about seeing my favorite storybook characters come to life on screen in a well-done way.
In Guess How Much I Love You: An Enchanting Easter, there is just the one feature which totals 30 minutes run time. This story takes place in the season of Spring right after what I imagined was a long cold and a snowy winter! The story is original and the importance of togetherness, friendship, and believing are definitely shining through in this tale.
All of my children (ages 9, 7, and 22 months) love this animated story and it was easy for them to follow along with. Nothing was over their heads. There’s no yelling, obnoxious bouncing around, or off-putting noises but instead heartfelt stories with characters I don’t mind my kids being fans of. There are some moments that are a little bit scary and suspenseful like when a storm approaches that could be frightening but with a caregiver or parent watching with a child, they can reassure them that it will all work out.
We love animals and the outdoors so that makes these stories all the more enjoyable. My children have learned fun facts about rare white animals as well as how to be a great friend. There is so much goodness to reap from this DVD! I highly recommend picking up and watching during the Easter and Spring season!
