Candlewick Press Animal Books #Giveaway

Little Nutbrown Hare has been a favorite children’s story book character of mine since before I even had children of my own.  I just love the relationship between the little bunny and it’s parent, the muted colors of the illustrations and the sweet stories Sam McBartney tells.  The latest in the series, The Adventures of Little Nutbrown Hare, is just as sweet as the first book in the series, Guess How Much I Love You.

Little Nutbrown Hare enjoys playing and exploring with Big Nutbrown Hare by his side to cheer him on.  This jacketed hardback book features four new stories that you and your child will relate to.

[amazon_link id=”0763658960″ target=”_blank” ]The Adventures of Little Nutbrown Hare[/amazon_link] by Sam McBratney is designed for age 3 years and up.  It’s 72 pages and retails for $16.00


[amazon_link id=”0763640557″ target=”_blank” ]Charley’s First Night[/amazon_link] written by Amy Hest and illustrated by Helen Oxenbury is a warm and fuzzy story about a boy named Henry and his new puppy.  Henry introduces Charley to his new home by taking him into each room and saying “This is home, Charley” so that the puppy will know he’s home.  Henry’s parents have made it clear that Henry will be in charge of taking care of Charley, walking him and feeding him and Henry is very excited about his new responsibility.  Henry’s parent have also made it clear that Charley will be sleeping in the kitchen.  When Charley wakes up crying in middle of the night, Henry tries comforting him but after several tries it becomes clear that the kitchen is not where Charley wants to be.

This adorable story almost made me want to get a puppy for my own children.  The bond that can be formed with a pet is undeniable and this story highlights what it’s like to become a proud owner of a new pet.  This charming hardcover book for ages 3-6 years retails for $15.99.  It is 32 pages long.
