Little Yellow Pear Tomatoes

by Demain Elainé Yumei, illustrated by Nicole Tamarin —

While playing in the garden, a young girl marvels at the energy and collaboration it takes to grow her yellow pear tomatoes.

She sees that everyone and everything brings something essential to the fruit she loves so much.

“… my daddy, my mommy, bugs and worms, clouds and sky, lakes and rivers, the sun and stars — are parts of the tomato you cannot see.

Take away any one, and the little yellow pear tomatoes in my garden could not be.”

The inspiration for this book came from the Zen teachings of Thich Nhat Hanh.

Ages 4 to adult.
