Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Veronica Bartles
Part of the "What Grows in Your Garden" series, this book is a basic first step to learning about tomatoes. Rooney answers basic questions, such as "How do you pick a tomato?" "Why are tomatoes good for you?" and "Are all tomatoes red?" The photographs are colorful, vibrant and eye-catching, with bright, inset labels to point out the details mentioned within the text. The information presented in the text is very basic for the youngest pre-readers, making this book ideal for read-aloud situations, as the fast-paced treatment of the subject is well-suited to hold the often-limited attention of children who aren't yet reading for themselves. A glossary at the back of the book provides detailed definitions for the more uncommon words, providing a little bit more depth into the subject for older researchers. This book seems to be more in-depth in its treatment of the topic than the book on apples in this series, but it would be nice if, in addition to the glossary, there was a list of resources for further reading for those who wish to learn more about tomatoes. Children using this book as a resource for a school assignment may become frustrated at this lack. Reviewer: Veronica Bartles
