Somebody Loves you, Mr. Hatch

Author - Eileen Spinelli        Illustrator - Paul Yalowitz

I thought I would share a book I just discovered today.   Not sure how I missed this book with its tender and timeless message - everyone needs to be loved.   An excellent book for four to eight year olds, Somebody Loves You, Mr. Hatch, tells the story of a lonely man who is told he is loved.  What happens next is a testimony to the power of being loved and sharing love.  This is a dear book with a powerful message and even though it is themed for Valentine's Day, it is a book to be shared year round.   Spinelli's book is a great motivational prompt to use which your children; to encourage them to think of ways to show love and appreciation.  The illustrations by Paul Yalowitz are "...first drawn with ebony pencil on bristol plate paper and then colored over with Derwent color pencils" according to the publisher.

Don't miss experiencing this book with your children.   Its message makes it a great choice for your home library.
