Little Yellow Pear Tomatoes
Demian Elaine Yumei
(Reviewer - Rebecca Brown)
2005 Illumination Arts Pub. Co.
A young girl marvels at all it takes to grow these golden globes.
What does it take to make things grow in the garden? Everyone & everything... “...my daddy, my mommy, bugs and worms, clouds and sky, lakes and rivers, the sun and stars...”
While playing in the garden, watching her favorite tomatoes ripen, a little girl marvels at all that went into them.
A thoughtful & charming way to introduce kids to the growing life cycle, from weeds to tasting, from worms to water, from sunshine to caterpillars, & of course, the little girl, because if she didn't like them, her daddy wouldn't grow them.
As a grower of Little Yellow Pear Tomatoes myself, I wholeheartedly recommend this lovely book that will grace your family's library & entrance youngsters for generations to come.
Should this have been Home & Garden? After all, it's all about gardening -- 'twas a tough decision, however, as Demian Elaine Yumei wrote Little Yellow Pear Tomatoes for children, & it is wonderfully illustrated by Nicole Tamarin from the little girl's point of view, I put it in Childrens' Books.
