Sure, this book takes place around Valentine's Day, but it's really a message for every day. It's one of my favorite illustrated books, with the sweetest drawings. But you've got to read it to the end for the big payoff. If you're feeling a little sad or low this Valentine's season, just read this book and remember that somebody loves you... maybe more people than you think!
One wintry day, a postman delivers a mysterious package with a big pink bow to a lonely man named Mr. Hatch.
“Somebody loves you,” the note says. “Somebody loves me!” Mr. Hatch sings as he dusts his living room. “Somebody loves me!” Mr. Hatch whistles as he does his errands in town. “But who,” Mr. Hatch wonders, “could that somebody be?”
After some time, Mr. Hatch discovers just who his secret admirer is and, in doing so, enjoys the biggest surprise of his life!
