    Beautifully illustrated. Wonderfully written.

    What a thought provoking book! As I read this story, I soon realized that my thinking about growing plants had been very wrong. I have always thought about seeds as containing everything needed to grow a plant - any plant. Isn¿t that what children everywhere are told? Some well meaning person holds up a tiny seed for a child¿s eyes to behold and patiently explains that the seed, no matter how diminutive it may seem, does indeed hold everything it needs to grow into its own type of vegetation. Of course, these are well meaning instructors who are simply trying to help children understand the miracle that is held inside even the tiniest seed, and what they say is true ¿ but there is so much more! ......................... Now, inside the pages of this beautifully illustrated book, we find a thoughtful child who not only looks at seeds as miraculous, but also understands that many other things are necessary for those seeds to produce fruit. That means there must be many things inside the little yellow pear tomatoes that helped them become the unique fruit that they are. ....................... As we turn the pages of this book, we enter the mind of a little girl as she sits in her garden thinking about those little yellow pear tomatoes that she loves so well. She notes the difference between these tomatoes and other tomatoes ¿ and there are many differences. Then she thinks about how her daddy and mommy help them to grow, how the sun and rain help them to grow, and even how the bugs and worms help them to grow. Are all these things now inside the little yellow pear tomatoes? Could the tomatoes grow without them? .......................... ***** As the story continues, children will learn to think about all the people, things, and situations that must be present in order for a little yellow pear tomato to mature. I enjoyed this story tremendously, and highly recommend it for all children. I think I can also guarantee that they will never again look at a seed (or a tomato) in the same way. *****

    tomato plants as example of ecological interconnections

    The holistic Zen teachings of Thich Nat Hanh are behind this picture given by a young girl of everything that goes into the little yellow pear tomatoes in her family's garden. 'A lot of not-a-tomato [italicized in original] things' are in them. Her mother and father are 'in' the tomatoes for helping to cultivate them. Sunshine, worms, insects, and weather are also in the tomatoes because they are a part of the surrounding, ecological environment in which the tomatoes grow. Tamarin's dramatic shifts in perspective from illustration to illustration help carry this holistic message home to young readers. A farmland panorama is followed by earthworms in the ground beneath the tomato plants in one double-page illustration, the young girl becomes smaller than a plant leaf, while in a later picture her head in shown among the planetary system.
