Overview: Guess How Much I Love You is a great bedtime story for almost every child.  It is a story about the bond between a father and son rabbit.  The story is about the father rabbit telling his child to guess how much he is loved.  It is a great way to start a conversation with a child about the strong bond between a child and parent.  It is a light-hearted story about a father and son joking around with each other and being close.  It is a silly story that you and your child can re-enact and play around with, creating your own scenarios.

Activity: Have each child draw a picture of themselves with someone they consider close to them at home.
