...about an old man, "tall and thin, who did not smile, and ate cheese and mustard sandwiches". His name is "Mr. Hatch". He learns a wonderful lesson, that we can all take to HEART (pun intended).
I have to thank talented author/artist Carol Baicker-McKee for mentioning this lovely book at the end of her hilarious post yesterday (read it here) on her blog, Doodles and Noodles. She said Somebody Loves You, Mr. Hatch, by Eileen Spinelli, is her favorite Valentine's Day book (her kids all loved it too). I had never heard of it, so I googled the title and found this fun reading of it by actor Hector Elizondo (source here). I'm still smiling, and I know you'll enjoy it. The picture book would make a lovely gift (along with a box of chocolates!)
