Somebody Loves You, Mr. Hatch

by Eileen Spinelli;  illustrated by Paul Yalowitz

This touching book tells the story of an ordinary man who leads a boring life until a candy-filled heart arrives at his house saying "Somebody loves you." This greatly improves his outlook, making him more friendly and happy. When he learns the heart was a mistake and he's sad, his new friends rally around to show him he's cared for.  This sweet story is quite popular due to how powerfully it teaches what a difference caring for others can make. Yalowitz's illustrations are a great fit for this story. We especially like how the colors slowly change from dull to bright as Mr. Hatch's whole outlook brightens.
