With endearing watercolors by Anita Jeram that capture a deep and tender bond between the characters, Sam McBratney's touching bedtime story seeks to measure the immeasurable: the love between a parent and a child.
BrailleInk.'s board book version of this popular, award-winning title reproduces the original print and illustration at the top of the page. Uncontracted braille is added at the bottom of the page, with the corresponding print letters printed again directly above the braille cells. Since it is easy for anyone to tell what the braille says, this book is ideal both for teaching/learning braille and for teaching sighted children about braille.
There is also a printed glossary that shows the alphabet, numbers and punctuation used in this book.

PreSchool-K–This is an oversize version of the endearing bedtime tale about a young rabbit and his indulgent father for beginning braille readers. Little Nutbrown Hare doesn't want to go to bed and keeps coming up with example after example of how much he loves his father in order to stay up longer. Both he and his dad try to outdo one another until Little Nutbrown Hare says he loves his father, right up to the moon, and his father replies, I love you right up to the moon–and back as his son finally falls asleep. This sweet tale is accurately translated into grade 1 braille (no contractions or abbreviations, just the standard alphabet word for word) that is brailled directly onto heavy board-book pages. However, the glossary isn't in braille, for some reason. Only the text is translated into Braille, so young readers will miss the expressive and charming watercolor and pen-and-ink illustrations, but this is a perfect book for a blind child and a sighted parent to share together.–Sharon Rawlins, NJ Library for the Blind and Handicapped, Trenton
