Don't you just love tomatoes? Those big, red, juicy tomatoes we get in the summer, that taste of summer and freshness.

One day, the crow who lives in a tree, found the biggest tomato he had ever seen. It was red and ripe and lush. But, the crow had too many fears to leave his perch in the tree to go take a bite. Soon a rabbit hopped along, saw the tomato and...

I think the book is confusing for a child who understands the words. The title doesn't match the content... eg the lesson is not to be afraid but the title is about thinking you can't do something.

The crow is afraid, but it gives the rabbit the solution to what it is afraid of without the self realisation that it too could do the same.

And the...

Don't you just love tomatoes? Those big, red, juicy tomatoes we get in the summer, that taste of summer and freshness.

One day, the crow who lives in a tree, found the biggest tomato he had ever seen. It was red and ripe and lush. But, the crow had too many fears to leave his perch in the tree to go take a bite. Soon a rabbit hopped along, saw the tomato and thought he might have a nice snack. The crow told the rabbit to be careful that a fox might come. What do you think the rabbit did?

Anat Umamsky, the author has written a delightful story about fears and how we face them, and if we decide to live with fear, what can happen. Her writing is fresh and lively, and my granddaughter was enchanted with the story. We talked for awhile about her fears, and how she can face them. The illustrator, Yvegeni Lagutin, has given us colorful, vivid pictures of the creatures and tomatoes who inhabit this book. The illustrations bring the story to life.

The lessons learned from this short story will be important to remember for children for years to come. The adults who read the stories can help their children visit their fears and discuss how to overcome them.

I think the book is confusing for a child who understands the words. The title doesn't match the content... eg the lesson is not to be afraid but the title is about thinking you can't do something.

The crow is afraid, but it gives the rabbit the solution to what it is afraid of without the self realisation that it too could do the same.

And the ending is further confusing because the crow berates itself for THINKING too much.

In my book, THINKING is good. Thinking logically is better. This book does not help a child think logically.

Children will identify with being scared of the wolf. Helping children deal with emotions is good. However, the story doesn't to that - it doesn't address being scared or what to do about it... or even just to say try something... it simply ends by saying it thought "so much all the time".
