Little Yellow Pear Tomatoes

The little yellow pear tomatoes that this girl loves to eat aren't just a snack: they're a symbol of how all of us — and all of the world — are connected. In rhyming verse, she contemplates how everyone brings something to the tomatoes, including herself: "because if I didn't love eating them / so much, my daddy wouldn't plant them!"

This exquisite offering examines the universal circle of life through the innocent eyes of a child. She sees that everyone and everything brings something essential to the little fruits she loves so much. Inspired by Zen teachings, this book also shows kids the importance of "not-a-tomato" things like earthworms, bees, water, and sunshine. With detailed illustrations and thought-provoking text, this book is sure to get kids thinking about their part in the world — and how the world benefits them.
