Emmy loves the story “Guess How Much I Love You?” – well actually I really love it and Emmy does because I read it too her all the time. When we are saying goodnight to each other we say “I love you to the Moon and back” which originates from this book by Sam McBratney.
We were sent a copy of the recently released DVD also entitled Guess How Much I Love You? The timing couldn’t have been better, Emmy has been suffering from a really bad cold which has seen her up for the last 3 nights fighting a temperature and feeling rather rough.
We have snuggled in bed together for the past have really enjoyed this heart warming DVD. There are 8 episodes each featuring Little Nutbrown Hare, Big Nutbrown Hare and their friends which include Little White Owl and the Little Field Mouse. Each episode is different and sees the friends going on adventures and learning life lessons and making choices along the way.
The episodes include ‘Blossoms‘ where you can see the Cherry Blossoms falling from the tree while exploring the seasons and Big NutBrown Hare reliving the journey he took to visit the Cherry Blossom tree when he was small.
In the episode ‘Bedtime Story’ you see Little NutBrown Hare feeling too hot and not wanting to go to bed so he visits Little White Owl along with his friends for a bedtime story who tells them a cooling tales until they are sleepy.
Other episodes include: ‘What Sound Does the Moon Make?’, ‘It’s Okay’, ‘Can you Touch the Stars?’, ‘Four Seasons’, ‘You for a Day’ and ‘Big Like You’.
Now when we go to bed we like to make up new words for our night time ritual, some of which have been:
- I Love You to Nanny’s house and back to McDonald’s
- I Love You to the top of the slide and down again
- I Love You to the stars and round and round the moon
Emmy has really enjoyed this DVD and it has fast become our favourite bedtime chill out DVD.
