Guess How Much I Love You

March 26, 2018 Des Moines Civic Center

Mermaid Theatre of Nova Scotia (Canada)

Grades preK-2

Hop into the illustrations of two well-loved books, as Mermaid Theatre of Nova Scotia brings their pages to life through beautiful puppetry.

Guess How Much I Love You
Little Nutbrown Hare loves Big Nutbrown Hare as far as he can reach and as high as he can hop. But Big Nutbrown Hare loves him as far as his long arms can reach and as high as his strong legs can hop. And so it continues in this adaptation of the award-winning classic from author Sam McBratney and illustrator Anita Jeram.

I Love My Little Storybook
An eager little bunny lies on the grass and opens his book. Within moments, the story he’s reading comes alive in fascinating detail. From illustrator Anita Jeram comes this endearing celebration of the joy of reading.
