The day Guess How Much I Love You came to life

Guess How Much I Love You is my son's favourite book.  It's not often he will single something out as his favourite and usually when asked he will say everything, all of them etc.   But as books go, this is his favourite.

The stage show of the book was in town so I purchased tickets to see it.  I'm not entirely sure what I was expecting, I hadn't really thought about it, but it was different.

The show tells the story of a little nutbrown hare and his father going through the seasons.  The narrator changes the set whilst they sleep through dance, music and singing.

About The Show Guess How Much I Love You

From the bestselling, Guess How Much I Love You and I Love You All Year Round collection, Little and Big Nutbrown Hare leap off the page and onto the stage in this magical journey through the seasons.

Little and Big Nutbrown Hare settle down after a bedtime story and re-awaken to discover the delights and colours of each season as they compete to measure their love for each other in this timeless loveable story.

A playful story of love and nature as it unfolds on stage through puppets, live music and interactive play for children 3 years and up.

Our Review of the Show

There is a lot of actions to go with the singing and this is used for audience interaction.  The narrator without saying a word encourages the children to do the dance moves with the hares, unfortunately, the day we went there were not many of us so it was hard work for her to get the audience to participate.

I'm not sure if they were shy, not wanting to participate or just very wrapped up in what they were watching, but halfway through the show the children started to come out of their shells a bit more and copy the hares,

My son was in awe of the whole show.

For adults, it may not be as exciting to watch, but I found myself watch my son more than the show and the love on his face as he watches his favourite characters come to life.

It's a captivating show, the music is soothing and the children will love it.  It's one that you think back on as you leave and think 'That was rather lovely'.
