This week in the library...

Mrs. G. has been gone all week to a technology conference in Austin, but the students of SES have been reading one of her favorite books in preparation for Valentine's Day!

In Somebody Loves You, Mr. Hatch, by Eileen Spinelli, Mr. Hatch leads a lonely life until one Valentine's Day when the postman delivers a huge, heart-shaped box of candy with a card reading "Somebody loves you." Knowing he has a secret admirer gives Mr. Hatch a bright new perspective on life--until it turns out there's been a terrible mistake. But Mr. Hatch's new friends rally to show him that a lot of somebodies love Mr. Hatch. [Summary from Simon & Schuster.]

Here's a great video of actor Hector Elizondo reading Mr. Hatch aloud.

And here are a few video clips of a live theatre version of the story:
