Somebody Loves You, Mr. Hatch
Mr. Hatch is so surprised that someone loves him that the next day he helps out the guy at the newstand, the grocer and shares chocolate at work. Everyone is smiley and kind to Mr. Hatch and he hosts parties in his backyard and becomes a totally different person.
Until the postman returns with some sad news. He delivered the Valentine to the WRONG house. Poor, Mr. Hatch. Nobody loves him! He reverts to his old ways and EVERYONE in town notices. What will happen to Mr. Hatch?
This book has a really good message about being kind to everyone we come across and how words can affect people.
I recommend it for ages 5-8 because it is a bit longer, but some 4 year olds could probably sit through it too!
