Book Description

18 Jun 2009 Let's Talk
Important issues of discrimination, prejudice, and tolerance are explored in this strikingly illustrated book about Tommy the triceratops. When Tommy and his friends chase new arrivals from their watering hole because they look different, their herd leader Alexander suggests a kinder approach. Soon, Tommy tries to repair the situation -- but finds himself cornered by a hungry T-Rex! An unexpected hero comes to the rescue, teaching Tommy that he must value people not by appearance but by their character.

5.0 out of 5 stars Third Graders Loved Tommy! 25 Oct 2009
By A. Davies - Published on Amazon.com
My third grade students were entranced with Tommy's adventure. Tommy's quest to find the truth leads him to discover that goodness and caring resides in non-green dinosaurs. This story is the springboard for my students' exploration of prejudice and understanding of tolerance. My students' conversations around the story were lengthy and intense, so much so, that we needed two sessions at the rug to finish reading Tommy and the T-Tops. Tommy is definitely a hero that third graders understand and love.

5.0 out of 5 stars author and book are fabulous 5 Aug 2009
By Naomi Goldsmith - Published on Amazon.com
Not only is the book powerful and interesting (for kids and adults), the author is equally as interesting! I met him at Coffee Labs in Tarrytown this weekend and he is seriously vested in peace in the world. Very inspiring. P.S. the tips at the end for parents to discuss concepts is amazing!!!

5.0 out of 5 stars Thumbs Way Up! 23 July 2009
By Tracey Spencer Walsh - Published on Amazon.com
I highly recommendTommy and the T-Tops! This book makes understanding tolerance an easy concept for children. Using dinosaurs to teach children that you can't judge a person by their appearance helps simplify the concept. The dinosaurs serve as models of typical behavior of people who assume that others who "look" different are bad or are people who should be shunned, then, who learn the important lesson that there is much more to a person (or dinosaur) than meets the eye. Tommy and the T-Tops serves as a helpful learning tool to help children with developing their executive function (exercising judgment). This book is great for bedtime reading and in the classroom to help teachers help the children develop understanding, empathy, and judgment.
