Tino and the Pomodori is a fun story about growing your own tomatoes through the eyes of a child! Set in Italy, this story is a great way to look at Italian culture. There are also some Italian words and phrases throughout the book to begin to introduce a different language. Most of all, Tino gives readers a sense of pride about growing his own food. With hard work and dedication Tino helps his Nonno grow enough tomatoes to last until next spring. Colorful and true-to-life illustrations will also help kids lean about the growth of the tomato plant.
