The Perfect Valentine's Day Book Mar 23, 2008
This picture book is my favorite for Valentine's Day. Mr. Hatch is a lonely, friendless man, until he receives a present from a secret admirer. Then, he blooms, contributing greatly to his community. The people in his neighborhood in turn support him as well, showing him how much he means to them. It is a lovely story about being a good friend, especially on Valentine's Day.
Mr. Hatch Mar 9, 2007
The book is wonderful. I used it in a classroom lesson about Valentine's Day. It has a lot of good lessons on feelings and emotions too.
The Best Author Jan 18, 2007
All 4 of my grandchildren, especially the 4 yr olds, loved the story and illustrations kept their attention. Eileen is the best author for children, she really relates to what they appreciate.
Heartwarming! Oct 25, 2006
This beautiful book is perfect for young and old! Although not religious it would be a great asset to any church library for Sunday school or even adult collections. I fell in love with this book!
